Abstract
A study was carried out to evaluate and compare physically and physiologically three types of synthetic insulating materials and the in-service Canadian Forces down-and-feathers sleeping bag with the ultimate aim of replacing the latter. The insulating materials evaluated were Thinsulate, Polarguard and Hollofil. Polarguard was found to be the optimum substitute for the down-and-feathers.
