Recent Cold Weather (below 0°F) Sleeping Bag Reviews

The North Face Ibex

rated 5 of 5 stars Great bag for winter camping used on a mat. My wife and I each purchased an Ibex in the mid 1970s. Have used on many winter backpacking trips in the Smoky Mountains, and many fall and summer backpacking trips as well as wilderness canoe trips in Canada and BWCA, week-long bicycle trips, and fall camping in Wisconsin. Fantastic bags as held up well and are still in use. Have had repairs to zipper (replaced), fabric tears, and need for down replacement all under warranty except need to have bag cleaned.

Woods Canada Arctic 5 Star

rated 5 of 5 stars This is a serious cold weather bag. I’ve slept in mine in an open lean-to at -45°F and had to get up and take clothes off to cool down. On the heavy side, but this bag is worth it. Only used it a couple of times and now not camping anymore so will soon sell it. If doing serious cold weather camping I wouldn’t touch anything else. Full review

Sierra Designs Cloud -30

rated 5 of 5 stars I have had my -30 Cloud for over 20 years. The newer Clouds have a larger foot, which I like, but my bag has been great winter camping and summer. I unzip it for summer and use it as a cover. In winter it performs excellent. If my current bag wasn't so reliable, I would buy the new Cloud just for the foot space. Full review

Woods Canada Arctic 3 Star

rated 5 of 5 stars I slept in this bag for four months in the Arctic and slept like a baby. Full review

Western Mountaineering Puma Super MF

rated 5 of 5 stars Super WARM and very light... I have used this bag down to -15° and have been completely warm and comfortable. I have no doubt it would be OK even down to -25°, and I am a VERY cold sleeper. I usually need a bag that is rated at least 20 deg warmer than claimed, but not with this bag. When it is not too windy I often just sleep in an open lean-to or under a tarp, and am just fine in the middle of winter. The MF shell offers excellent wind and water resistance, zipper works great, there is plenty… Full review

Western Mountaineering Puma GWS

rated 5 of 5 stars The Puma GWS lives up to the ratings and is high quality. The zipper works flawlessly and the cinch cord is easy to use. I slept out in -5 degrees with 25mph winds in a single person tent, warm all over. Remember a sleeping bag is only as good as its sleeping pad. In the winter you will get cold with any sleeping bag if you use a cheap sleeping pad. Full review

The North Face Ibex

rated 5 of 5 stars I bought an Ibex sleeping bag from The North Face over near the Stanford shopping center in 1974 or '75. I used it for years and years. Finally had some problems with the zipper in 2001. Sent it in and North Face repaired it and refilled the bag with new down and charged me $30 cleaning fee. I now use it for winter camping. With layers on I have slept comfortably in single digit temps. Full review

Wiggy's Super Light FTRSS

rated 5 of 5 stars -4 degrees and as comfortable as could be. When you are outside in the cold and you know that everything is going to be OK, that's how I would describe this bag! This is the kind of bag you just can't wait to get into. Very warm (after about 15 seconds, then it warms right up). At -4 degrees it does everything I expect it to do. I'm a warm sleeper and most of the time it's unzipped. Packs great and puffs right up when you are ready to sleep. The bag is perfect for what I do, very durable heavy… Full review

Outdoor Vitals Summit 0

rated 5 of 5 stars Backpacking in the winter can be discouraging if you don't have the proper sleeping bag. OutdoorVital's Summit 0° sleeping bag will keep you toasty with its down insulated properties, baffle design, hood, and overall comfort. In addition this sleeping bag packs down, weighs under 3 lbs, and most importantly, it's not overpriced! This sleeping bag has kept me warm on several nights in the teens. I haven't experienced any cold spots including around the zipper or hood. The fit is amazing. If you… Full review
