Recent Cold Weather (below 0°F) Sleeping Bag Reviews

Woods Canada Arctic 5 Star

rated 5 of 5 stars The warmest sleeping bag on the market. I used this bag in Northern Saskatchewan while working in geology. The temperature was minus sixty degrees Fahrenheit. I was cool, but at that temperature, what do you expect? This is the best sleeping bag I have ever owned. The sleeping bag is bulky, but will endure a lot of punishment. The bag can open up fully and be used as a comforter if necessary. This bag will keep you warm at -40 degrees. Full review

Slumberjack Latitude -20°F

rated 5 of 5 stars Bag lives up to its name. People who contest otherwise are not dressing appropriately (overdressing) and should find other activities than outdoor ones. This bag keeps you warm. Some writers have indicated that it is overrated. ALL bags are rated for ideal conditions and are thus overrated for some activities. ALL. Bag is comfortable, loft holds up well. NOTE: you cannot overdress and use a bag that is designed for this low of a temperature. The more you wear, the more you will actually sweat. Sweat… Full review

Western Mountaineering Bison GWS

rated 5 of 5 stars There's nothing wrong with a little overkill when you're serious about survival. I bought this bag two years ago for dead-of-winter camping in the mountains of East Tennessee and Western North Carolina. I wanted an overkill bag and decided to go all the way. The coldest temps I'm likely to see are maybe -10° on Stratton Bald. The coldest I have actually experienced was around 0° and this bundle of joy handled that with aplomb. I'm 5'9" and bought the regular 6 ft bag.  The zipper is well conceived,… Full review

The North Face Dark Star -40

rated 4 of 5 stars If you are crazy enough to winter camp in northern Minnesota (or most places in Canada for that matter) and want an affordable extreme cold-weather bag, this one should be high on your list. Look folks, -40 degrees is cold. I mean COLD. Few of us will ever get to experience it. I came close, though. During a week-long winter camping trip to the BWCA in northern Minnesota the night temps fell to -30°F, and probably a few degrees colder. Our group had two cotton tents, neither heated at night, and… Full review

Stephenson's Warmlite Warmlite Triple Bag

rated 5 of 5 stars Stephenson's Warmlite Triple bag is a top notch camping and backpacking sleep “system.” While an old design, it is still unique in the market, has a wonderfully comfortable mattress, and covers an extremely wide temperature range due to the dual tops design, for a price that is very attractive if you consider the alternatives. After many years, it was time to upgrade to a new sleeping bag and pad. One of my sons decided to “confiscate” my old cold weather sleeping bag and cold weather pad,… Full review

Mountain Hardwear Lamina -30

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Very warm bag, comfortable down to -20°F for women I'd say. Note that it is heavier than a down bag and doesn't compress down very small. Having used this sleeping bag in a cold cabin when outside temperatures were about -25°F, I feel this bag keeps one comfortably warm down to -20°F (women), although the technical rating is for -30° (survival temp). This bag has a storage pocket on the upper body (outside of bag). It would fit a flip phone of yesteryear but not my Galaxy s4. I use it for chapstick… Full review

Big Agnes Yellow Wall SL 0°

rated 5 of 5 stars I spend most of the year in the hills and have used this bag exclusively for the last five. After owning and using a Big Agnes bag I will not use another brand. The product is well designed. The bag has been great. I have used it for five years, everywhere from Arizona to Oregon. It is the first Big Agnes bag that I have owned and now I will not use any other maker. Big Agnes equipment is built to be used and stand up to the demands of the outdoors. I am proud of all my Big Agnes gear. Full review

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 4.5 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
