The North Face Elkhorn -20
Where to Buy
Here's what other sites are saying:
An efficient mummy bag but with room to stretch, The North Face Elkhorn -20degF synthetic sleeping bag is a great choice for cold-weather camping. Heatseeker(TM) insulation offers a great warmth-to-weight ratio, is highly compressible and is extremely durable, making it ideal for cold weather. Ripstop nylon shell is lightweight and durable, and offers silky softness that enhances the insulation's loft; silky nylon lining feels soft next to your skin. Offset, layered construction prevents cold spots and creates consistent warmth. Vaulted footbox allows natural foot movement and eliminates excess lateral space, increasing thermal efficiency to keep your feet warm and comfortable. User-friendly features: adjustable hood and chest drawcords, easy-grab zipper pull tabs and zippered internal chest pocket. Full-length draft tube backing the zipper keeps the warmth in and the cold out. The North Face Elkhorn -20degF sleeping bag includes a stuff sack.
Not one elk ever complained that its horns were cold, no matter how stormy the night or unbelievable the thermometer. Some would say this is because elk can't talk, but really it's because they're smart and, like all smart animals, they spend their coldest nights in The North Face Elkhorn -20 Degree Synthetic Sleeping Bag. Well, the elk-sized equivalent, anyway. Even though the Elkhorn has a roomy relaxed mummy design that's nice and spacious for a human, it won't really hold a full-grown elk, which is probably OK. As you might expect, a bag with this much synthetic Heatseeker insulation--which stays warm even if it gets wet, by the way--isn't ultra-light or packable, but if warmth is more important than covering long distances (if you're car-camping, say, or spending nights in an alpine hut or arctic research station), it's a damn good choice. Just throw your watch in the internal pocket, seal up the heat-trapping hood, and spend those polar nights thinking about how lucky you are not to be an elk.
High quality Heatseeker synthetic insulation and an offset layering technique create a toasty warm envelope in the Elkhorn -20 Sleeping Bag from The North Face. A relaxed cut gives you the efficiency of a mummy bag with a little extra room to stretch out or add an additional layer on the coldest nights.
