Warm and hairball free.

The North Face Women's Cat's Meow 20 Degree Synthetic Sleeping Bag is just the kitty you want to cuddle at night when you're on a late-fall paddle through the Boundary Waters or on an extended tour of upper reaches of the Italian Alps. Made using Core Series construction, this bag bathes your tired limbs in layers of warmth for a good night's sleep when the mercury dips.

Two different layers of Heatseeker Pro synthetic insulation keep you cozy when temperatures fall, though you might want a bag liner if you're flirting with the bottom limit of a frigid 12F. This two-tiered approach to insulation maximizes compression without sacrificing warmth or durability. By using off-set baffling to keep the shorter synthetic fibers close to your body and the longer continuous filament fibers closer to the bag surface, the Cat's Meow stays purringly warm even after years of abuse.

The women-specific shape on this mummy bag puts more insulation around your chest and feet and takes away the extra bulk around your hips and core for a supremely comfortable night's sleep. The shaped hood and draft collar limit the amount of heat that escapes from your head and neck in the  middle of the night. Internal hand-warmer pockets mean you don't have to wear mittens to bed. Attach your pad to the bag via attachment loops so you don't slip off in the middle of the night. Whether you're out exploring remote corners of the world or trying to stay warm until the HVAC repair can show up, the Cat's Meow 20F offers hairball-free warmth.

  • EN comfort rating of 24F, lower limit of 12F
  • Heatseeker Pro synthetic insulation, continuous filament and cut-staple blend
  • Women-specific mummy bag
  • Shaped hood, draft collar
  • Internal hand-warmer pockets
  • Sleeping pad attachment loops
  • Compression sack and stuff sack included

Here's what others have to say...


Looked pretty

  • Familiarity:I returned this product before using it

I liked the color of this bag. Looks even better in person. I returned it before using it as I got it too late for my trip. This was a problem with my poor planning not the fulfillment center shipping the bag.


Decent Bag

  • Familiarity:I've put it through the wringer

I've had this bag for years and years and years. It's durable and does okay for a three season bag.

I'm not a fan of the hand warmer pocket. It's made from this microfiber fabric which snags on my callous and dry skin (yuck but the truth). My version of the bag (I originally bought mine in 2008) has an additional lining around the feet, which I absolutely HATE. The microfiber catches on every knick and tear on my feet and makes sleeping miserable. I am incapable of sleeping in the bag without first locating and wearing socks.

As a climber, I totally understand calloused skin!!

Does anyone have any low temperatures they tried this bag at? I have read some reviews saying it wasn't that warm at 40 degrees. I live in northern Minnesota so I will definitely experience some nights in the low 30's and want to know if this will do the trick. Thanks!

I don't have this sleeping bag, but I have North Face's zero degree synthetic bag. I find it comfortable down to around freezing, but past that it doesn't keep me warm enough. I know others who have slept in the same conditions with a 20 degree bag and been fine. It will largely depend on how warm/cold you sleep and what you're wearing inside. That probably doesn't help much, but if you're like me and often cold at night, you will need something rated much lower than the temps you plan to sleep in.


So cozy!

  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I live in Northern Idaho and have used this bag a few times on some very brisk and windy nights and it does a great job at keeping me warm. I sleep cold and I have never been cold in this bag. I am 5' 5'' and got the regular bag and it fits perfect.

I love that the zipper is glow in the dark so it's easy to find without having to fight with a flashlight. There is also a little gear pocket inside the bag for a phone or flashlight. Right at the chest area is a great little place to put your hands to keep them nice and warm.

I use this mostly in my hammock and have found that with the hood being so fluffy I don't need a pillow. It is a great bag for hammock sleeping because you stay warm and it fits close to your body so you don't get all tangled up in the night.

I highly recommend this bag! And it's a pretty color!

So cozy!


  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I love this thing! Its gone with me on afew cooler hikes, and I have slept like a rock (with a therm-a-rest pad cut to fit inside) in a hammock. The glow in the dark sipper pull freaked me out in the middle of a rainy night though. I thought a glow bug had gotten in with me. Nope! Just another cool feature!


Long still too short

  • Gender:Female
  • Familiarity:I've used it several times

I love this bag but even the long is too short and feels claustrophobic! The footbox is very tight as well. It is very lofty, warm and cozy & stays dry however after exchanging the regular for a long, it's still not long enough. I am a slim 5'9" women but this bag, even in the long, feels like a kids bag. This bag would do wonders for someone 5'7" or shorter.


Warm, dry, happy

    This sleeping bag is awesome. It kept me warm on a cold, windy night, it stayed dry on the inside even though the outside of it was a bit damp, and I just plain love it.

    • Familiarity:I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    Bought this for my girlfriend to use whenever we go camping. She is naturally a cold person and this kept her warm and toasty throughtout the night. Met my expections.


    Cat's Meow

    • Gender:Female
    • Familiarity:I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    After years of using my boyfriends sleeping bags, I finally decided to purchase my very own universal bag when I stumbled upon this little beaut. I absolutely love this sleeping bag! I am a cold sleeper so to have a bag in which keeps me warm is a plus. The color is very vibrant, just like the picture depicts. There is a pocket where you can put your hands if it's extra chilly out and there is also a small pocket on the inside where small things can be stored. I am extremely pleased by my purchase and I cannot wait to go out camping just so I can snuggle up in my nice new bag!
