User Review: The North Face Windstorm 3D
Fill: Polarguard 3D
Temperature Rating: 35 F
Weight: 2 lbs
Price Paid: $110
This is a no frills fair weather bag for a decent price. It's light (although there are lighter 35 degree bags), compresses pretty small, and has good construction. It's 35 degree company rating is not accurate though. I've taken it down to maybe the mid 40's and was chilled. For true near freezing weather I'll use my Cat's Meow bag with its 20 degree rating. The Windstorm does have a functional hood, light draft tube, and nice big zipper pull. It has lost a lot of it's loft over 3 years of use, but that is typical of synthetic bags (and I have used it many times in those 3 years). It is a good late spring, early fall bag; too cold for real mid 30's weather and too hot for summer weather. It shows no sign of wear other than the losing some loft.
