  • Summary: Quality construction, great value. I purchased my Blue Kazoo in 1986 (yes, almost 29 years ago) and have used it, on average, 10 nights a year for backpacking. It has failed to keep me warm only once while winter camping in the Rockies when temps dipped outside my tent to about -10°F.

  • Summary: Light, warm, and user friendly! Extra fiber fill in just the right places. Unique stuff compression sack allows it to fit well in bottom section of pack.
  • Pros: Down warmth with fiber fill under hips and shoulders help keep loft.
  • Cons: Same as most lightweight bags, zipper flap gets caught sometimes.

  • Excerpt: I've had this bag for over 11 years now. Doesn't have the loft it used to, but it's still warm. I find it's very versatile. Mine doesn't have closed baffles front to back so for summer camping I'll shake the down so that most of it is on the back of the bag.

  • Excerpt: Good bag for three season camping. Long bag has plenty room for a 6'1", 180 pound guy. Kept me warm well below freezing (I'm a warm sleeper). Nice quality for a mid-priced bag.

  • Excerpt: I was very happy with my Blue Kazoo bag. It has kept me warm so far even in below freezing temps. I love the fact that it has a remarkable price tag as well. I used it up in the Sierras and woke up to about a foot and a half of snow and still was not cold.

  • Excerpt: This bag rocks!!! I used it on a backpacking trip to Revelstoke and kept me warm at -5C/25F and I'm a cold sleeper. I have the 2003 model so not sure how the new ones fair - but coming from TNF I would expect exceptional quality, reasonable price, and really light weight.

  • Excerpt: I have the Blue Kazoo 20. Still going on 5 years with no bad issues. Is losing some feathers. Very durable. AT thru hiked in 2002 and used it for 50% of trip from 17 degrees to 70 degrees. Two items are not perfect. The main zipper sometimes gets stuck in the zipper cover fabric.
