A super-warm and eco-friendly backcountry bed.
Ever rigged your bed on little skis and pulled it behind you into the backcountry so you didn't have to use a crappy sleeping bag? That's admirably dedicated, and a whole lot crazy, but check this out: The North Face Aleutian 0-Degree Synthetic Sleeping Bag unzips completely flat, so you can have the warmth of an 15-degree EN-rated bag when things are freezing, and the coziness of a comforter if the night's a little bit warmer than that. It's also full of synthetic Heatseeker Eco insulation, which is made of 30% recycled material, and keeps you warm even if it gets wet, which is something down won't do. The Aleutian isn't a super-light backpacking bag, but it still has a draft-defeating collar and roomy mummy design to reduce weight while maximizing warmth, so you'll sleep better in the mountains than you ever did in your own bed.

- Q & A
Good bag but not was I was looking for
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
Got this bag thinking I could use it for backpacking even though I read a few reviews suggesting otherwise. I stuffed this bag inside my 65 liter pack for curiosity and it damn near took up most of the space. If I was looking for a winter, car camping bag this would be it. Just wasn't what I was looking for but thought I would take a chance on it because of the price.
Too big for backpacking
Good sleeping bag for camping but not backpacking
Light, warm, and comfortable... what more could you ask for. I like how well it packs down for my backpacking trips. Material is a nice quality. Before I purchased this bag I heard concerns about the zipper quality, but I've never had any problems at all.
