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. Granted, on nights when temps dip below about 25°F, I start putting on long undergarments to sleep, but doing so has kept me toasty in this bag down to about 0°F.

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. When things start getting cold, I'll shake the bag so more of the down is on the front of the 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. I would not have been so open to buying the bag if it was not on sale, but I must admit it holds a lot of qualities that a more expensive bag would have.

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. Don't leave home without this bag. Used it with the Rock 22 tent and had a comfortable sleep. You get what you pay for, and this bag is the best!

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. The other is that it could use a little more knee space for us fetal sleepers.
