Recent Cold Weather Down Sleeping Bag Reviews

Western Mountaineering Bison GWS

rated 5 of 5 stars Incredible quality in materials and craftsmanship. Packs down very small and is very lightweight (under 5 lbs) for its temp rating of -40F. I have no doubt it will live up to its reputation when put to the test. After reading hundreds of reviews and comparing specs, Western Mountaineering was the bag I kept coming back to over and over. Feathered Friends was a close contender, but a max 64" shoulder girth even in their long bags was ultimately the deal breaker for me. FF is actually slightly less… Full review

The North Face Inferno -40F/-40C

rated 5 of 5 stars Excellent choice for winter camping, very packable for its size and true to its warmth. Have used it in a lean-to with no tent in miserable conditions and was quite comfortable. I have not slept out in -40° temperatures yet, but it was excellent at -20°. Closed up enough around the face to not freeze, actually ended up taking off my hat halfway through the night! A bit long for me, I'm 5 foot six, but I put extra clothes at the bottom. Easy to get in and out unless you are wearing lots of layers,… Full review

Woods Canada Mount Blanc Supreme

rated 5 of 5 stars I have owned this bag since 1980 when I purchased it new here in London, Ontario, for $200 at that time. This is a seriously warm and lightweight bag for its temperature rating as compared to my old eiderdown 3 Star bag which weighs in excess of 21 pounds. The Mount Blanc Supreme was the top of the line semi-mummy bag with 3 pounds of goose down fill and a nylon outer shell. Baffled construction and nice light green outer with yellow inner lining. It weighs in at about 4.75 pounds. Although a little… Full review

The North Face Inferno -40F/-40C

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a sleeping bag equipped for extreme cold and it is made to keep you warm and comfortable when other products don't. The North Face Inferno is an excellent sleeping bag. It fits any needs for extreme cold nights. With it being waterproof the morning dew doesn't bother you either. I use my Inferno bag every time I go out in cold weather. I fully recommend the sleeping bag to anyone who would sleep in that weather. Full review

Stephenson's Warmlite Warmlite Triple Bag

rated 5 of 5 stars We go backpacking for three week stretches every summer. I remember when my parents bought their custom made zip together bags, and slipping in the bag from time to time WAS PURE BLISS. I have now inherited their 30-year-old bags and me and my wife ABSOLUTELY LOVE THEM. Vapor barrier technology was something new in the '70s and I never liked the clammy feeling of VPB shirts, but in the sleeping bag it is great. This is the best sleeping bag EVER built. I have had Marmot, Sierra Designs and (when… Full review

Valandré Thor

rated 5 of 5 stars This sleeping bag seems a little expensive. The weather rating is really high. This bag is best for the experienced backpackers and hikers. I would not recommend it. I was really warm, even on the coldest night. It fit well enough and I am really tall. There was an easy transition. Full review

Valandré Thor

rated 4 of 5 stars This is not a full review, but more some random notes for potential buyers. I feel there's not too much info out there about this bag. I haven't given this bag a rating since I haven't used it yet, but wanted to write this before forgetting. I have a Big Agnes -20F (-29C) that I've been happy with. It doesn't have down on the bottom side, but you're suppose to use it with an air sleeping pad that you insert into the bottom part of the sleeping bag. This has been working fine. It's very light but… Full review

Big Agnes Hahns Peak SL -20°

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This bag is different since it doesn't have down on the bottom side of the bag, but instead room for a fitted sleeping pad. I have used this bag since 2010 for winter hiking and in most cases in the Adirondacks, but also on the West Coast but then in a bit warmer temperatures. I've experienced temperatures down to -20°F, which I think is the limit for what I'd feel comfortable in. I normally just sleep in a thick fleece base layer when sleeping in cold weather.  I've never really taken the included… Full review

REI Kilo Plus -5

rated 5 of 5 stars I have the men's version (gold and grey color). Awesome bag! Snug as a bug in a rug! I have the men's version of this bag, bought it in 2002 I think. The thing rocks! Its shell is water resistant (always a good thing with a down bag), and while there's higher fill-power bags out there, for the price you will have to look hard to find a better value in a sub-zero bag.  I have taken this bag out in zero degree temps in Shenandoah National Park, sleeping in an open-sided shelter with wind-blown snow… Full review
