The North Face Tourlight 3D

The Tourlight 3D has been discontinued. If you're looking for something new, check out the best warm weather synthetic sleeping bags for 2023.

I have had two of these sleeping bags. One is a spare my brother never used that I inherited. This sleeping bag is defiantly the best sleeping bag for backpacking in my area, especially cause it rarely ever gets colder then 35 F. I have used this sleeping bag in snowy conditions in North Carolina and I wasn't that comfortable but it definitely managed to keep me somewhat warm. This thing is amazingly light and packs super small. I've had mine for about 7 or so years and I wouldn't buy another sleeping bag in this rating area cause this sleeping bag will never let me down.

I have used this bag exclusively for all my trips over a period of four years. I love this bag for its light weight and extreme compressibility. I find 45 degrees to be the bottom limit for this bag, and that is while wearing long underwear, fleece top, fleece hat and wool socks. Anything below 45 and feel chilly (although I have used it down to 35 with a liner). But for 50 degrees and up it is great, and it is so light that you don't mind bringing it on a summer trip "just in case." After 4 years of use I feel it is losing a little bit of loft, but other than that it shows no wear whatsoever.

I've used this bag twice now--both times the temps went below freezing! I have to say that it was barely adequate in those conditions, but I did at least take it to its limits. It is light as a feather and packs small enough that I was able to fit it into my hip pack. I didn't bring tent, tarp, pad, or stove either and was able to run the trails! If that is what you are looking for--increased mobility that comes with light weight there aren't many lighter than this. If you can put up with cold toes in the early dawn hours you can even use this bag into three seasons. I used it in Ontario in April.

I already own TNF Superlight 0 degree down bag and I love it. However, this bag was a little overkill fo summer trips, so I decided to invest in another TNF bag for warm climates. I wanted a synthetic bag so I would not have to worry about it getting wet and not insulating (summer weather in KY is so hard to predict).

I chose the Tourlight 35 degree bag. It is flat out awesome, it packs to the size of a football and weighs about as much as wrist watch does. Backpacker magazine claimed that it was somewhat small and and too snug but I disagree, it's a mummy bag not a king size bed. I feel that it provides ample amonts of room and have no complaints. If you plan to buy a warm weather sleeping bag which is somewhat affordable (by TNF's standards) this is the bag for you!!!
