User Review: The North Face Men's Nebula
Fill: 800 fill down
Temperature Rating: 15F
I have enjoyed this bag very much. The first place I went with it was Mt. Rogers VA in January. We experienced every type of weather from sunny to rain to sleet and finally snow. We slept in an open front shelter the second night and when I woke up my GPS thermometer was reading about 25F. Needless to say I was nice and toasty despite being in a rather open shelter.
The next trip was to Stone Mountain NC in November during a cold snap. When we checked the temp in the morning it was reading 17F after the sun came up. That night I was slightly cool in the bag but that was on the very bottom edge of its rating so I have no beef. Plus my brother-in-law and I were in a 4 person tent that was extremely drafty. In a proper tent I don't believe I would have been cold at all.
Loft is fantastic, this is a very "fluffy" bag. I do keep it hung in a closet for storage so as not to compromise this in the future.
The taped zipper area is very nice and almost eliminates any chance of snagging.
Very slim fit. If you like to move around and put your knees up in the air and stuff this is not the bag for you.
Packability is great this bag comes with a very substantial compression sack that makes it very compact. I could fit my tent and the sleeping bag in the bottom compartment of my Osprey Aether 70.
The waterproof feature is nice and I opted for it "just in case" and thankfully have not had to test it.
The bag snugs down to the face nicely the only thing that would improve this feature would be a true shoulder baffle. All it has is a sort of "collar" that wraps around the neck not a cinch cord.
The lining material is absolutely plush!
Finally, it is very true to its temp. rating. If you expect to be in many situations where it will be below 15F go ahead and get a 0F bag.
