User Review: The North Face Cat's Meow
Fill: polarguard 3D
Temperature Rating: 20/35F
Price Paid: $165
I've had this bag for over a year and besides its constrictive design, I've noticed that it's rating is way off. At REI it was retailed as a 20-degree F bag. I was already downright cold at the upper 30's on several occasions. Then I noticed in campmor that it was rated as 20-35F. Hmmm, so what' the deal? It truly needs a draft collar and tape to prevent the zipper from snagging (which it does EVERY SINGLE TIME I USE IT).
I plan on using it for one more season. Its light weight still attracts me as does its constuction, materials, and compressibility. This time I'll sleep with my synthetic fill jacket.
Next time I'm going with a Wiggy.
