User Review: The North Face Cat's Meow (Polarguard Delta)
Fill: Polarguard Delta
Temperature Rating: 20F
Price Paid: $126
After purchasing this bag from REI, I read some reviews of the bag. Kind of a cart before the horse situation. A few people complained that it wasn't a "20F-7C" bag. On the other hand several other reviews praised the bag for it's warmth and packability. While going on a trip wasn't in my time frame, cold weather was. Living in the Sierra Nevada's, cold weather is readily available on a February evening. Looking outside the thermometer said 20F at 2:00am so I grabbed my pad and slept in the back of my pick up. I don't know what the naysayers problem is, but I was in my boxers, T-shirt and socks. While I wasn't on fire in the bag, I was still very comfortable. The only complaint I have is that the toggle for the draw cords would pinch on the chest material when pulled tight and I couldn't get the chest cord any tighter. It did seem a little too roomy in the chest and this might save smaller people some heat if TNF cuts down on the extra space. Overall this bag rocks.
