    Made for humans.

    Studies have shown that an overwhelming number of people choose to sleep on their sides at night, so you might as well catch some Zs in a sleeping bag that's designed for humans. The Nemo Equipment Forte 20-Degree Synthetic Sleeping Bag has a unique spoon-shaped mummy design that gives your elbows and knees the wiggle room they require when you're changing positions or lying on your side, and it strives to give you every comfort that you'd expect from your bed back home. The draft collar is cut in a blanket fold, giving you a tucked-in option when you're cold and throwback options when you're warm—and if you find yourself too toasty, a couple zippered vents along the top let you cool off even further. To complete the at-home imitation, the pillow pocket lets you stuff clothes or camping pillow inside for resting your head, and the Forte is designed to zip together with the Viola for a perfect night's sleep with your partner.

    Zipper snags slow shipping.

      Literally 1 time testing this bag the zipper snagged, pain to release. Thats enough is a deterrent everything else seems quality built except the most important part. Also Backcountry 2 day shipping is really 4 days so if you need this fast, like I did for a birthday gift, don't order from here. Go pick up at a local store, bad experience from forte and Backcountry would never do business with either again.

      Love it

        Best sleeping bag ever owned! Was surprisingly comfortable during our overnight camping trip. Temps dropped down to around 30 degrees and they kept us warm all night, and the vents on the sides were nice for ventilation. Was also surprised by the leg room as these are a little wider than normal sleeping bags giving us room to shift around at night when needed. Definitely recommend for anyone looking for a sleeping bag for casual camping in temps above 20 degrees, but not for your hardcore survivalist campers.
        Pros: Leg room
        Warmth in colder temps

        Cons: None preformed as expected
