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

ALPS Mountaineering Desert Pine -20

rated 4 of 5 stars A warm, but heavy, bag at a good price. I've only used this bag once, under the stars on my porch, after having to cancel a Scout overnight due to dangerous roads. The temperature started around the 20s and the low was 16°F with windchill bringing it down to single digits. It wasn't snowing, but a lot of snow was blowing around.  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 knit acrylic hat,… 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 Ce n'est pas un examen de sac de couchage ;) 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. 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

Wiggy's Super Light FTRSS

rated 4.5 of 5 stars Worth almost every penny. I purchased this bag in January of 2012 to replace two bags (Eureka! 20 degree bag and Backside 0 degree bag) figuring that I wanted to do some Adirondack camping and would like the option to camp four seasons. At the time of purchase this system came with a free pillow made from the same material, but didn't come with its own stuff sack which wasn't a big deal, but would have been nice. The system was also on sale at the time, Wiggy's was having a sale that basically said… 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

ALPS Mountaineering Crescent Lake -20

rated 5 of 5 stars Warmth, compressibility. Definitely recommended. For any person planning a backpacking trip in early spring, late fall, hut ski trips, mountain climbing, camping, etc. I am an avid backpacker and needed a relatively lightweight, heavy-duty, cold weather sleeping bag. This one fit the bill perfectly. I live in Colorado, and the nights get very cold. This bag keeps you warm all the way to your toes. There is not a lot of moisture buildup. There may be some if it is slightly humid/ raining but not… Full review

Slumberjack Latitude -20°F

rated 1 of 5 stars This is an overweight 30-degree bag imposing itself as a twenty below bag. I have never before seen such a mis-representation of a product without a company being sued or forced to recall its product. The problem is three-fold: Top has about 1" of loft, as noted by another reviewer (a -20 bag needs to bulge in the middle, not sag). Draft tube is not wide enough and not filled enough (it is a fairly-flat, 2" wide piece). Zipper catches and snags, not on the draft tube, but on the bag itself, ripping… Full review
