User Review: The North Face Ibex
Fill: 550 goose down
Temperature Rating: -15 F
Weight: recently weighed at 4 lbs. 10 ounces
Price Paid: $300 US 1986
A very warm bag that has held up well... have slept without tent or bivy and bag has had frost on it in the morning... but was still so warm I had to zip open to vent and remain comfortable.
Once melted away the bottom panel by getting too close to the fire... used for a couple of years covering hole with plastic and duct tape... finally sent to North Face for repair... they refilled down to original specs, patched bottom and cleaned all for $40 US.
Now that I am older and more weight conscious when packing I am considering a lighter +20 bag for 3-season use but would keep this one for desert car camping (very cold nights) and occasional cold weather outing.
