The perfect balance of three-season warmth and light weight.

If you're looking for dependable three-season warmth while keeping pack weight light, the North Face Blue Kazoo 15-Degree Down Sleeping Bag will deliver. This sleeping bag weighs in at under three pounds, and features lofty, water-resistant goose down, strategically placed synthetic insulation pads underneath you, and water-repellent fabric to keep you comfortable in variable conditions. The goose down is highly compressible for easy packing and rebounds completely for optimal warmth, again and again. Both the lightweight and durable nylon face fabric and smooth taffeta lining are water-repellent to protect both you and the bag from heat-robbing moisture, and a draft collar helps keep your body warmth in and the cool night air out. Special vertical baffles along the sides of the bag prevent cold spots by keeping the insulation from shifting.

The Blue Kazoo's mummy shape and fitted hood keeps bulk and weight to a minimum, and optimizes warmth inside the bag and around your head. A vaulted foot box offers roomy vertical space for your feet so they don't feel trapped in place. The bag is outfitted with a non-snagging two-way zipper (nice if you're using the bag in warmer conditions and would love some fresh air around your feet), and the zipper pull glows in the dark for middle-of-the-night convenience. To keep the bag from sliding off your sleeping pad, it includes sleeping pad attachment loops. The Blue Kazoo compresses down into a 9x17-inch stuff sack for fitting inside your backpack, and when you get home, you can store it in the included larger storage sack.

  • Rated to 15 degrees (limit for average man)

Here's what others have to say...

If it is between this bag and the marmot sawtooth which one should I get.

Best Answer

Hey Zach,

Both bags are a good choice, personally I'd suggest going with the Marmot Sawtooth since its stuff size packs down a little smaller and offers a little more room than the Blue Kazoo.


Very good sleeping bag for the money.

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

Bag is very light and well made. The only problem I have is that the zippers gets caught on the draft tube. Zipping or unzipping. If you need to get out of this bag in a hurry in the middle of the night. You had better have a sharp knife with you. Air baffle must be held out of the way to keep it out of the zipper. I have never had any such trouble with my 25 year old down bag. Draft collar needs to be made out of a little stiffer material. Or at the very least some kind of tape needs to be on the draft collar right beside the zipper. If Mr. Bear comes calling in the middle of the night, and you need to get out of your bag in a hurry. Good luck.

Does this bag unzip all the way to lay flat like a blanket?

No part of the foot box is not open. It can still be used as a blanket on warm nights.

Im 5'5, 125pnds. The short (no regulars for sale) says up to 5'6". Am I going to be a bit squished in it? The specs say 71", but not sure how much wasted space is in the head area. Im not a huge mover when sleeping (thanks to my cat). Thanks for your opinion. Great price.

I am 6ft 5in and I fit perfectly into the long version, which has a max user height of 6ft 6in. I am confident that you would fit into the short version being it's the same height difference (1in). It is an awesome bag!

Hi, are you planning to stock any XL blue kazoo bags with right hand zippers in the near future?

Hey David,

I checked our system for any XL blue kazoo bags with right hand zippers that might be on back order. Unfortunately we will not be ordering any in the near future.

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

Pretty much a TNF classic bag that's a no brainer if you're looking for a warm lightweight durable bag. I've had a variation of this bag for 10 years and still use it to this day.


Good Choice

    Performs exactly as advertised. This is a well built attractive sleeping bag without being overly expensive. It's temperature rating is accurate (I sleep with a medium set of long underware, socks and hat during cold conditions). At comfort rated 29 degrees on a damp night with slight breeze I felt plenty warm. I have not slept in colder conditions yet. I heard that bag lengths are usually exact. I am 5'11" and 170 lbs. I ordered long to have just a bit more "wiggle" room with underware and socks. Glad I did. Overall, a comfortable, strong bag.

    Question about sizing, how tall can the regular size accomadate? I am 5 foot 11 inches, which size would you recommend? Long or regular?

    Best Answer


    The Regular size fits folks up to 6'0'' tall. I come in at just under 6'0'' myself and use sleeping bags that are a Regular size.

    I have no problems with them. For my winter bags, I size up to longs to give me some room at the bottom of my bag for extra items like layers that I want to keep warm or liners.

    What is the method of attachment with the sleeping pad loops? does anyone have a picture? Do you need webbing to attach it or does the pad slide through the loops?

    I have always used a small diameter shock-cord to attach my bag to my pad. This is done by tying one one end to the loop on the bag, running it under the sleeping pad, and then tying it off to the loop on the other side of the bag. Hope that helps.
