User Review: The North Face Men's Cat's Meow
This bag rocks. Notice all the complainers seem to not know the correct use of a 3-season sleeping bag.
- Quality materials
- Low weight/super compressible
- Zipper tends to catch if not eased up or down
All the Coleman campers need to stop their whining and use this product correctly. You shouldn't have a lot of room in your bag, it should feel a little claustrophobic. You are supposed to use an insulated sleeping pad to accurately gauge any sleeping bag rating around the 20s.
Also, that hood, it cinches really tight and locks in heat very well...once again if used properly this bag is one of the best in its price range. May not be as comfy and roomy as you're used to but it does insulate very well. The zippers do suck, but quality interior materials seem to catch a lot easier than thicker heavier material.
You can get away with dropping a 13 lb sleeping bag on the ground and staying warm but we're working with 2+ lbs. It's not gonna protect you from alpine conditions without some help. With a smart layer of clothes, this can easily become a 0-10 degree bag.
