    Kayu 15 Sleeping Bag

    The Kayu series consists of Nemo's ultralight bags for backpacking, and although it's ultralight, the Kayu 15 Sleeping Bag is packed to the gills with features. Its 800 fill-down insulation has one of the highest fill ratings to bring warmth without the weight, and Nemo treated it with Nikwax for hydrophobic properties that help the down retain its lofty warmth in moist environments. The shell and lining are also treated with durable water-resistance, and the hood and footbox have Osmo waterproofing for extra protection from wet weather and damp tents. The Kavu also features Nemo's clever Thermo Gills that drastically amplify ventilation for sufficient thermal regulation if you get too warm.

    Will see

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

    The zipper got a bad snag in it that I didn’t think would be fixable. Finally got it fixed. So far it’s doing good. Other than that, the bag rocks. Just not sold on the quality of the zipper (plastic) but time will tell. I still love this bag so far and think it was a great deal. So light weight and small/packable.

    Warm Bag

    Familiarity:
    I've used it several times

    I upgraded to the Kayu from a heavier synthetic bag and was very happy with my decision. The bag compressed nicely and the weight is competitive with other high end bags. I used the bag in 25-35 F weather and stayed very comfortable each night. I would highly recommend the Kayu to any backpacker.
