What are the alternatives to Fibre pile?

There are synthetic alternatives to fibre pile, such as a hollow fibre fill bag or synthetic sleeping bags with wadding fills. However fibre-pile is far more weather resistant and much warmer when wet than these filled sleeping bags.

The downside is that fibre pile fabric can be heavier than its synthetic fill competition. However in the context of sailing where sleeping bags are not carried any great distance, it is no great disadvantage.
