Recent Cold Weather (below 0°F) 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 Dark Star -40

rated 3 of 5 stars Warm. This is a warm bag. It was used on a 5-day trip to Ontario in temps that hovered in the upper negative teens F. When I did not roll off my pads, the bag kept me extremely warm. When not on the pads, it still kept me comfortably warm, but with a slight chill. Not at all uncomfortable. This bag is also quick to dry in the morning. These are the only positives in my opinion. The zipper is unbelievably difficult to pull closed the last 6 remaining inches. The draft tube comes loose easily… Full review

ALPS Mountaineering Echo Lake -20

rated 3 of 5 stars A very warm and comfortable sleeping bag. While the Echo Lake -20 does the job, there are some things that could have been done better. I bought the ALPS Mountaineering Echo Lake -20 sleeping bag in October for dead-of-winter camping. Unfortunately we've had a very mild winter so far, and it wasn't until this past week that we've seen subzero temps. There's no sense in testing equipment if you're not going to approach or push the envelope, right? This past Monday and Wednesday nights were forecast… Full review

U.S. Armed Forces Modular Sleep System MSS

rated 5 of 5 stars Personally test, constantly used, tough as nails! I have personally used this sleep system more than a hundred time, both while I was in service and now as a civilian. It was my first purchase (of military gear) the week I had to turn in my Army issued MSS, right before retiring. It's warm, tough/durable, and with the bivy bag it's water tight. Now, a lot of people complain about its weight (being around 10-12 lbs all together), but I am 6' 4" and 255 lbs, and I never even noticed when it was in… 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
