User Review: The North Face Men's Snowshoe
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $150
A very warm, not too heavy sleeping bag.
- Pretty light
- Good in wet conditions
I've taken this bag on many trips, one of which was to Alaska. We were there through the end of August. On an average night it got down to the low 40s/upper 30s. However, there were some nights when it was quite went and got down to freezing or below while being very wet out.
This bag held up quite well. I should say that I usually sleep warmer than many people, but I always stayed warm in this bag. Once it gets down around freezing you definitely need to take advantage of the "mummy" part of the bag and zip it tight around your face. It was wet 90% of the time in Alaska. The bag dries well and doesn't allow a reasonable amount of moisture to penetrate.
It certainly isn't the lightest or smallest packing that a sleeping bag can get, but it is good enough for someone who doesn't want to spend $300-$400 on their bag. That is the only reason the bag doesn't get 5 stars from me...but if you understand that you aren't buying the best pack-light bag on the market, it will be 5 stars for you.
