Type of Sleeping Bag: Mummy
Make and Model: The North Face Blue Kazoo
Temperature Rating: 20
Weight of Bag: 3 lb.
Fill Type: Down
Review: Good Bag, not great because the down leaks slightly but from looking at other reviews of other bags I guess this is a common problem, and it doesn't leak much nor did it start til after I had used it 30 or so times. Its good down to about 25 degrees. Which is only 5 degrees above the rating which is better than most. You have to be careful about getting it wet as the shell isn't too water resistant. Guess they've improved the bag by putting Polarguard at bottom of head, shoulders and feet, supposedly improves insulation. Size of bag is good for me at 6' and 165lbs and could even handle someone up to about 6' 3" and 190 lbs. comfortably I'd say. In summary this is a better bag in its class worth buying especially if you can get it on sale for $150. or less as i did (at REI)
