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

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

ALPS Mountaineering Desert Pine -20

rated 4 of 5 stars A warm, but heavy, bag at an amazing price. Warmth (and conditions): This bag is rated for -20 and I've used it twice, once in the teens and once in the twenties, both times under the stars on my porch. I slept on a 2" self-inflatable air-mat and wore Polartec Powerdry expedition-weight base layer top and bottom, a Polartec Thermal Pro fleece jacket, a merino wool gaiter, a knit acrylic hat, thin acrylic gloves, and heavy wool socks. I didn't notice any drafts either time. The first time, the temperature… 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
