Recent Cold Weather Down Sleeping Bag Reviews

Ajungilak Goose Bay

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Good bag. I've spent approximately 400 nights in this bag so far, and have no complaints about anything but the zipper. It snags easily, and can be especially difficult to open when you're just waking up and trying to get out of the bag as soon as possible to escape the heat.  The included compression sack is also useless. I didn't like the design, and one of the straps broke the first week. Ajungilak replaced it, but I prefer using a traditional compression sack instead.  After 5 years of heavy… Full review

Big Agnes Crosho SL

rated 5 of 5 stars Warm, cozy, light, compact. Performs very well. I'm used to using two bags in Minnesota during the cold season since it often reaches -20° F  here in the winter. Packing in two bags, two pads, and other gear gets heavy and bulky. I fill up my 95L pack. If I hike in a long ways, I normally pull my bag in on a sled. At a compact 4lbs 1oz (long), I can finally pack in on my back.   The bag repels water well. (I washed it after I bought it online. I hand kneaded water into it and it took forever… Full review

Black Pine Sports Backside Bside 800 Super Down -40

rated 1 of 5 stars Manufacturer's website claims the bag is filled with superior 800 down. Material tag on bag shows it is filled with 600 down (see photos on Amazon.com review). They have not explained why that is. Bag was returned. I stand corrected. One customer service employee said 800 is just a name. Strongly suggest they revise their website. Full review

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. ***FEB. 3, 2015 UPDATE after field testing the Western Mountaineering Bison GWS****** So last night the temps got down to 23F here in Atlanta, so I set up my tent in the back yard and slept in the WM Bison GWS. WOW!!!  AWESOME BAG!!!! I have added a few photos to show the loft of the bag… 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
