Super light and durable.
- The 650-fill down insulation retains your body’s warmth and provides a high warmth-to-weight ratio
- Synthetic anti-compression fill is strategically located in areas where your body typically comes in contact with the ground so as to create a more durable insulating layer and reduce heat loss
- Vaulted footbed won’t constrict your feet and helps promote circulation to your lower extremities
- Ergonomically shaped hood provides extra comfort, improves the bag’s warmth-retention, and reduces its overall weight
- Trapezoidal-shaped baffle system ensures a consistent fill volume to reduce cold spots
- The grey goose down in this bag is purchased from small, family-owned farms that do not live-pluck or force-feed the geese

Best cold weather bag around
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I highly recommend this bag to anyone who enjoys cold weather camping. The first night I had it out the temperature was in the mid 20s(F) and I slept like a rock wearing only boxer briefs! The next night the temperature picked up into the mid 30s and I woke up in a mild sweat, but still slept well. There was light moisture buildup on the exterior of the bag, but was dry on the inside. Pack-ability is great, a little larger than a volleyball in the compression sack it comes with.
I've used this bag anywhere from the mid teens to mid fifties for camping. Lately, I've been sleeping in the back of the car and it's still working wonders. When the temperature gets too hot, I still use the bag as a blanket. I ordered the small because I'm around 5'4" and the fit is just perfect! It's light, warm, durable, and overall a great bag.

I've now used this bag in conditions ranging from the 40's to the low teens. For the latter, unzipping and using it as a footed quilt worked best; for the colder, totally bundled up kept me toasty (and the wind was blowing 25-30 mph, so the wind chill was substantial). Packs very small if you have a valved stuff sack.

What happened to the Superlight Endurance...
What happened to the Superlight Endurance bag with the Pertex shell rated at -5 degrees?
That specific product is discontinued.
North Face does still use Pertex on some of their higher end bags. The Summit Series, for example.
Pretty good, but losing feathers
- Gender: Female
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
I've had this bag almost 2 years and have used it for both backpacking and car camping down to 15 degrees F or so. I've noticed feathers seem to leak from the bag with each use, which is concerning since I'm specifically using the bag for extra cold conditions. The hood once cinched up stays put pretty well without feeling too constricting. A Sea to Summit Ultrasil compression sack really helped compact the bag down more than the stuff sack it comes with and offers some water protection.
part of the quiver
A zero degree down bag is a great piece to cover you in most situations and this one is tried and true....a steadfast part of my quiver!
light n tight
Great bag for any season. Great zippers that haven't gotten stuck and best of all - it's compact! Love it.
The bag packed away great. Could really take as much as air out of it as you can press it. The only complaint I had about it is the compression. I used my own dry sack instead. The back was extremely comfortable. I got the large version just for the extra room to put clothes down there and such to keep warm. The top also forms very well around your head. I thrash around a lot at night in my sleep and the bag had plenty of room for me. Enjoy!
Great 3+ Season bag
This bag is super compact, light, and reasonably warm- making it ideal for spring, summer, fall, and warmer winter excursions. If you're bivying in a snow cave, I'd probably opt for a little bit better insulated bag, but if you're snow camping in a tent, it's generally pretty warm. I usually carry this bag, plus a bivy sac to add a few extra degrees of warmth. If you're regularly snow camping with ski boots, kick down for the extra long one so you can keep your liners in the bottom- allowing them to dry out a bit while you snooze.
