Topic - Keeping a down sleeping bag dry, during a multi day winter trip

neil9216 - on 17 Jun 2014
Hi
I'm planning a multi day backpacking trip this winter.
At the minute I use a mountain equipment helium 800 down bag.


When I use the bag in cold conditions it never fails to keep me warm however I can't keep the thing dry for more than 2 days.
I've tried using a bivvy bag but that seems to make matters worse.
It gets really condensated then when I put the bag away and bring it out again it's damp.


I'm pretty sure I'm just using the wrong bag.
What kind of bags do other people use.
Does any one have any tips.

Cheers

Neil
