    As light as down, but more versatile.

    Stuffed with synthetic Heatseeker Eco insulation, The North Face Aleutian Sleeping Bag is surprisingly light, even when compared to most down bags. For you, that means you can backpack in warmer weather and still keep your load as light as possible. Heatseeker Eco is highly compressible, extremely durable, utilizes 30% post-consumer recycled material, and offers an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio that can keep you comfy throughout the summer nights, even when wet. The Aleutian's comfort mummy cut gives you a roomier feeling than most mummy bags, and both the hood and draft collar help retain all its warmth for the cooler weather in summer. The bag features a wraparound footbox zipper to open the bag completely so you can use it like a blanket.

    • Budget-friendly sleeping bag pairs well with summer campouts
    • 55-degree temperature rating suitable warmer nights
    • Heatseeker Eco insulation retains warmth in wet conditions
    • Heat-efficient mummy shape helps retain body heat
    • Full-length side zipper can be opened up during hot nights
    • Item #TNF037J

    Good bag for the money

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I got this bag for multiday hikes for about $60 on sale. At that price it is a great deal. It is clearly good quality with a nice big zipper. I don't think it is a great deal at it's $100 retail price, though it wouldn't be a rip off.

    The weight and volume are very good. It is a little roomier than the minimalist bags (which are just too slender for me)for my 5' 11" 200 pound build. It's fine for folks my size who like mummy bags. Honestly I prefer rectangular or semi rectangular bags. I'd thought the cut of this bag might make it roomier than it is, but it's just enough so I'm OK with it.

    I've used it under a lean to tarp on a 48-50 degree night over a poorly insulating 1 1/2 inch pad. I got cold but managed OK. It wasn't like I was shivering in the bag. I think the 55 degree rating is accurate as a minimum comfort rating if you got some insulation (R3 or better) under you. Otherwise you might get uncomfortable. As a late Spring/Summer/early Fall bag it fits the bill here in the southern US. However, since half of my hiking falls outside of those times of year I have to have a second warmer bag. I guess it is normal to need 2 bags if you hike year around.

    I would definitely recommend this bag so long as the price is in the $60 range and you strictly respect the temperature rating.

    Update: I've now used this bag at temps as low as 40 degrees with a well insulated mattress and though I got a little cold I was ok. I'm a hot sleeper though. I've really come to love this bag for its portability.

    Good summer sleepback

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

    We both left and right zip version with my wife because we've moved to Florida for camping purpose. The bag package is small and light. We have it mostly for higher temperatures above 60F. The bag has shorter zip on the other side which is nice feature in hot weather. Long version is comfortable if you are more than 6" high

    I used the sleeping bag in winter time in Florida. It is realy humid in summer so we did not camp too much. If it's too hot I use it just as a blanket with fully open zip.
    I finally tested it in winter in high mountains. When temperatute is about 15°C I can sleep with the same comfort as at home. When the temp droped down below 13°C I used two sleeping bags. And when the temp was lower than 4°C than even two sleeping bags were not enough and I woke up little bit freezing. But I was sleeping only in merino shorts and t-shirt.
