Topic - Down sleeping bags if you are allergic to down

BoulderyDave - on 28 Oct 2012
Hi - I am trying to choose a sleeping bag to replace my rather feeble synthetic 'Blacks' sleeping bag. The bag will be used for summer Alpine (huts and occasional tent at higher altitudes) and camping during the spring and autumn in the UK. It will also be used for a trip to south America which will see temps of ~0C, during which I will be camping for 7 days straight.

I am quite badly allergic to feather pillows etc and was wondering if anyone out there is using down sleeping bags and suffers from this allergy? If so, how have you been getting on and what bag would you recommend?

Otherwise, which synthetic bags pack down light but will be able to cope with the temperatures mentioned above?

Thanks in advance
