  • Summary: Summary Some of the best sleep I've had lately has been in this bag, in the woods, in the winter. Pros warm lightweight compressible good zipper/features I've used this bag for one season of winter camping in northern Minnesota, and I'm very happy with it. I'm a cold sleeper, but in temperatures around 10-20 F it kept me very comfortable. It's like sleeping in a (warm) cloud. The coldest night I used it was around -10, and I slept OK, but was a little chilled.

  • Summary: I bought this bag for my last spring trip to Big Bend. My wife got the women's version called Couloir. They both are excellent sleeping bags. Since I got the right-side zipper, we were able to join them together easily which was added benefit. I used a liner to keep the inside clean (recommended for all sleeping bags by the way) and I was quite warm in the bag alone and connected during 30°+F nights in the mountains.

  • Summary: I have the 2007 version of the Never Summer bag, and suspect they didn't update much besides the cosmetics. Why would they have to? It's a great bag! I love the down fill, which allows me to sleep comfortably in nights with temperatures well above the bag's rating without sweating up a storm. I have yet to use it in under 50 degrees save double bagging it in the winter, so I can't know how it stands up to the rating.

  • Summary: Bulky, cheap and warm. Comfy and warm with lots of loft. It is certainly tough enough for everyday use too. However, its size and weight make this not the best mountaineering choice. Still, simply amazing for winter dirt-bagging.

  • Excerpt: This bag is great. If you're looking for a sleeping bag that actually keeps you warm when the mercury falls to the bag's temp rating, this bag is for you. I recently used this bag on a winter campout and loved it. After a long day of hiking, nothing looked more inviting at the end of the day than those 7 lucious inches of down. The bag has a very thermally efficient cut and a hood that feels like it's tailored to your noggin's dimensions. I am a cold sleeper by nature.

  • Excerpt: I purchased this bag two years ago as a cold weather bag, but its versatility has made it my bag of choice for most of my backpacking trips. Last weekend I took it to Fiery Gizzard, expecting mild temps, but a front brought record cold temps and snow flurries, and I slept toasty warm. Usually in the Springtime I would have opted for my 40 degree bag, but took the NeverSummer instead, it was a wise choice.

  • Excerpt: I have an earlier model of this bag but the concept is the same. It is well-constructed and warmer than I need for Sierra summer trips, though it comes up a bit short for winter use for me. (It may be sufficient for most good winter Sierra conditions if you are willing to butress it with extra clothes, etc.) Compared to some of the 800 and 900 fill bags it is a bit on the heavy side for a bag in this temperature category, and it does not stuff as small.

  • Summary: My favorite bag! I wish my bed at home were this comfortable! I've had mine for about two years and it has seen a lot of winter action in the Smokies. Spent the night out under the stars on Mt. Sterling with nothing but the bag between me and -5 degree night air! This bag is huge too! Plenty of room to throw clothes and a couple of water bottles in. Awesome bag! I highly recommend it!

  • Summary: I've had this bag for two winters and it has been great! No problem getting cold, although it has never seen anything below 10 degrees. I've used it on 10 differnet snow shoe trips, and it packs small and is fairly light. I'm six foot and a got the tall version, which is really great because I love the extra room to stetch out and store clothes during the night. Good bag and value!
