User Review: The North Face Cat's Meow (1993)
Fill: Polarguard HV
Temperature Rating: 20 F

Price Paid: about $130
I have had this bag for nine years of continuous late-spring/summer/early-fall use. At first it would keep me warm down into the twenties. (Sleeping bag ratings are relative to the individual, humidity, sleep patterns, warm/cold sleepers, and many other factors. I would never bring a 20 degree bag on a trip where I would expect to sleep in 20 degree weather!) But the loft compressed quickly through heavy use. I have beat this bag up very badly but have had no other problems. Currently I use it as a summer bag and a smile crosses my face when the temperature rises enough to pull it out again. Add a fleece liner to it, and I can even pull off spring use (Maine/Quebec Canoe Guide).
