Summary: 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.

Summary: 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.

Summary: 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!

Summary: 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.

Summary: I'm 5'11" and 210 pounds. The bag was cramped for me. Big problem with cold spots due to the down shifting. Fidgety zipper. Snagged and actually came open several times in the middle of the night. Do yourself a favor, take a pass on this bag. It's not up to TNF's usual high quality standards.

Summary: As it is expected from TNF, this bag is superbly well built. The temp rating seems accurate and it packs extremely small and actually fits my 4000cu/in frame pack that I own. However I have one complaint: Whenever I'm wearing shorts in this bag the seams inside the bag have a rough feeling on my legs, and it will only stop if I don't move my legs at all. I was wondering it the same thing occurs with the Superlight and the Kilo Bag...

Summary: I don't have much luck with this sleeping bag. The first one was a defect and got replaced. The second one looked OK but then found feather leaking never stops. Both ones came with lot of dust. Pros: it does keep me warm at +30F, and it's very light and can be compressed into very small pack. It dries quickly even though it gets wet easily.
Excerpt: Wow! Although this bag is a little expensive, I found it to be well worth the money. It was perfect for a two week expedition to Arizona and New Mexico, where it can get QUITE CHILLY at night. Pretty light, and very compressable. This bag has given me a whole new respect for The North Face and their products.
