Owning up to its melodious title, the Women's Nemo Equipment Inc. Viola 20 Degree Synthetic Sleeping Bag is shaped like a stringed instrument you might see in a concert hall. Unlike the stiff, wooden cousin of the violin, the sleeping bag version is warm, soft, and large enough for something that might seem novel when it comes to camping--a good night's rest--but with seventy percent of folks sleeping on their sides, the Viola comes with curves to accommodate. The unique spoon shape gives your knees and elbows the room they crave when you're rolling around trying to find the perfect position, but the comfort doesn't stop there. A blanket fold draft collar imitates a tucked-in-your-bed feeling, an integrated pillow pocket lets you create your own head rest, and zippered vents help you cool off when the sun rises to warm your tent. The Viola can even be zipped to your partner's Forte sleeping bag, so every comfort of your bed at home is right there in your tent.


If you sleep on your side or tend to toss and turn, the women's NEMO Viola 20 sleeping bag offers generous room at the elbows and knees, as well as temperature-regulating features for milder nights.
