User Review: The North Face Windstorm 3D
Fill: polargaurd 3D
Temperature Rating: 35
Price Paid: ?
This was the first bag I bought for backpacking and I've used it for well over 8 years. It's light weight, packs small and performs as advertised.
The bag has been all through GA, up to Maine, to the Smokies, Yellowstone, Tetons, Carolinas...I've easily spent a few hundred nights in my Windstorm.
The only problem I can think of is the zipper sometimes gets snagged but it's easily reversed and has never torn the fabric.
For those complaining it's not warm enough I suggest a fleece blanket. It's only a 35 degree bag, however, I've camped many nights below freezing by adding a small cheap fleece blanket inside the bag. I've gone into the teens with this method but I have to admit I wasn't always toasty warm.
With that said, for mild temps this has been an awesome backpacking bag and since it shows absolutely no sign of wearing out I'll continue to use it!
