I'm a relatively recent convert to the PNW (Oregon to be exact). As I'm new to motorcycles camping my question is whether to get a down or a synthetic sleeping bag. I've spent most of my life in New York and New England where it seemed to rain about every three days that I went camping, so I used synthetic bags. Now I am starting motorcycle camping and all of the bags that I have are quite large and bulky (even with a compression sack) and I would like to get something more compact. I have to strap the gear (sleeping bag, tent, and clothes bag probably in Helen2wheels bags).
So are most of the bags that people use down or synthetic?
