This is a serious sleeping bag question!!

When hiking I tend to be slightly more flatulent than usual, especially after dinner. So naturally when trying to fall asleep/stay warm on chilly nights there is the issue of:

Do you fart in your bag and not worry about it, or do you unzip to ventilate?

Corollary to this question:

Which holds more fart funk: Down or synthetic?

Well, some people are at least responding to the poll. I think this is a very valid question, one that should be on your mind as you rip nasties into that $300 sleeping bag.

Personally, I don't spend that much (or haven't yet) on my bag, so I have no problem lettin' loose. However, I just have to ventilate. I chose the last option though. Surprised more people haven't. :-?

Forced air heating

I don't know about that. For some unfortunate soul it could be a boiler system. Hopefully with no leaks.:D

It would be great if the made a sleeping bag out of meterial that would chemically react with methane to produce heat.

Beans every night. :clap

What if you were REALLY cold, tried to force one, and then... it wasn't just air that came out!

Maybe that's why most shelters have only 3 sides!

Well after extensive observation and data collection I've arrived at the following conclusions....

Farting in the bag is no big deal.
Down tends to hold the funk longer, but aerates better upon squishing. Synthetic doesn't hold the funk as much after each individual release, but does get funkier in the long haul.
You can rip away into that expensive bag without worry.

By the time I was approaching Harpers Ferry I was pretty confident that I'd invented a new product for stripping paint. The intensity of the reek that resulted from the unwashed sleeping bag odor and a fart that resulted from a post mac and cheese meal took nasty to a new level. I'm pretty sure it would work great to strip paint off old furniture. I fell asleep trying to figure out how to get it into a production line of cans. I figured the logo would be something like "from my can to yours.":D (this is humor.)

Everyone knows girls don't fart but if I ever did I would let it vent quickly. Oders settle in fluffy stuff, ciggarette oders, pet oders. It's not like farts are going to freshen it up, why take the chance.

Competitive farting:

Real men fart...it's what we're good at. When I was in the service we used to have a rating system for our farts. They were rated one thru five for smell and for sound. 5 was best for either category. Tone considerations included volume, tone, reverberation and flutter. Odor was rated on the degree of foulness, durability, tearability and if it acted as a breeder reactor. Then the scores were added together. The problem with competitive farting is that when you get a high number in one category you usually get a low number in the other. Itís damn hard to get a nine or ten. Sleeping bags might impede some aspects of a fart in competition. Morning after beer farts were the best for me.

Send this one to Mythbusters (Discovery Channel). They'd probably do it. LOL! Too funny.

There are some things to keep in mind when you're over 50... and perhaps the most important one is:

Never trust a fart.:):o:eek::(:mad:
