Still the warmest and most compressible insulation available

GoLite uses premium quality 800- and 600-fill power goose down. Down is still the most thermally efficient insulation available, i.e. it provides more warmth for its weight than any other insulation available. Down is also superior in its drape, comfort, lifespan, and compressibility. Nature is an incredible thing.
Unmatched warmth-to-weight ratio: down’s fine filaments reach out into its surroundings and create dead air space that slows the escape of warm air, doing it better than any synthetic.
More compressible and durable than synthetic insulations, and it retains its loft better over time.

Sleeping Bag Care

It’s best to hand-wash your sleeping bag. Fill a bathtub with warm water, soak the bag, add a gentle soap such as Woolite (or even better, Nikwax Down or Tech Wash), kneed the soapy water through the baffles, and then rinse until the rinse water is fairly clean. To dry, follow the instructions below.

It is possible to machine-wash down and synthetic sleeping bags. First, though, consider the following factors:

The perimeter and baffle seams can tear, especially when the insulation is wet (thus heavier).
Normal household detergents will strip the natural oils from down, and residues from these cleaners will degrade the DWR-finish of the shell fabric.
Therefore, if you are going to machine-wash your sleeping bag, we recommend that you:
Use the gentle cycle on a front-loader washing machine, and
Use a mild detergent such as Woolite or an insulation-specific soap like NikWax Down Wash.
Rinse it more than once. This will remove detergent residue, which will improve overall performance.

Particularly in the case of down bags, drying is as important as washing. Down bags can appear to be dry from the outside while, in fact, its care is still damp, which can lead to mildew.
Using a tumble-dryer is recommended. Place a tennis ball in the drum with the bag to "fluff" it up as it rotates. Commercial dryers have larger drums than home machines and are therefore preferable if several items are being dried at the same time.
If you air-dry your down bag, remember to shake it regularly during the drying process to prevent clumps from forming.
