Sleeping Bag - a bag designed for a hiker to sleep inside to stay warm. These bags are a shell with either down or some man made fiber trying to be as good as down in order to best preserve heat. Combined with a sleeping pad (most of the time) they form the hikers bed.

Interestingly the sleeping bag tends not to get washed as regularly as other hiker equipment, probably do to the fact that they must be laundered with care to prevent damage. The end result of this is most tend to smell like a hikers crotch after a few months of continuous use.
