If you get in touch with North Face and tell them the bag is not performing
properly they should send you a new one. They replaced two for me when my
son and I were using synthetic bags. It is a very good synthetic bag but
when you get a new one, use the largest stuff sack you can tolerate do not
use the sack that comes with the bag - It is too small and will crush the
batts. Store it in a large cotten bag like REI sells. The dryer and tennis
balls does NOT work with synthetic bags - at least not mine.
