Azura 20 Sleeping Bag
Redefining what a premium high-end sleeping bag is capable of, the Nemo Women's Azura 20 Sleeping Bag is an ultralight backpacking mummy bag that uses a revolutionary FeatherCore construction to offer exceptional compressibility without sacrificing warmth. This groundbreaking design allows the bag to pack down 40% smaller, providing all the benefits of synthetic insulation at roughly the same pack-size as down. This unique construction technique pairs with the thermally-efficient shape and toasty Primaloft Silver insulation to keep you sawing logs in warm comfort through temps as low as 20-degrees. Thermo Gills help you vent excess body heat without letting cold drafts in when you get a little bit hotter than anticipated, while the generous apparel-like hood brings you even more heat retention.

Wanted to love it
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
Hi - I bought this sleeping bag in a long. I am 5'10" and about a size 6/8. I barely fit in this bag and knew it was going to be a snug fit but didn't expect it to be so uncomfortable. The main issue is that the hood of the sleeping bag is always snug so you can't really roll over on your side. This might be easier if you are shorter than me, but I kept waking up with a stiff neck from trying to move in the bag. I used it on two different 2-3 day backpacking trips and a couple of single night car camping trips in between. After the first backpacking trip, I ended up bring a small Klymit blanket just so I would not have to zip the bag up all the way and could get a little bit of movement on the second trip. Plus the bag doesn't breathe at all so I kept waking up really sweaty and the blanket helped with that. Yes it has the vents but I would go to sleep feeling comfortable and wake up sweaty and cold from sweat, so not wanting to open the vents.
But now for the good. The bag is really well made and packs up super small. If you are vegan like me or just camp in really wet areas and want a synthetic bag, there really isn't anything on par with just how small it packs. I think if you are a shorter person and bought the long bag you might be able to make it comfortable. I am really struggling with whether to return it. I know there is nothing else that compares as far as weight and packability for backpacking but it truly is uncomfortable to sleep in.
