Caring for your sleeping bag

Enjoying a long and happy marriage with your favourite sleeping bag can come down to laundry. Washing your sleeping bag is the single best thing you can do to prolong the life of your outdoor bedding. 

Washing a down sleeping bag requires specialised detergent to maintain the loft of the filler. Domex recommends the Nikwax range, developed to enhance the life of your sleeping bag and restore water repellency.

The team at New Zealand Hunter Adventures does an amazing job explaining how to care for your sleeping bag regardless of fill type. Check out their video for expert guidance on washing your sleeping bag, with additional step-by-step instructions below.
