Synthetic fill is above all robust and low maintenance. It insulates even when damp and dries significantly faster than down. This makes it less sensitive to the effects of weather and moisture condensation. Synthetic fill’s loft and sleeping comfort isn’t quite as high as that of a down fill. Pack size is another point where down fill has an advantage. For activities in humid regions or wet weather when pack size isn’t as important, synthetic fibers are a good alternative to down.
