    Don't let the cat out of the bag.

    The 20 Degree Cat's Meow Sleeping Bag is The North Face's lightest and most compressible synthetic bag for backpacking in moist conditions. Its Cyclone construction wraps  Heatseeker Pro insulation continuously around the bag to maximize your warmth and maintain a lightweight, compressible design to reduce the weight you're hauling on your back by day.

    The shaped hood and draft tube help this mummy bag block out cold, whipping gusts, and the pad retainer loops attach to your sleeping pad so you never toss and turn onto the cold, hard ground. Plus, when the sun rises to say hello once more and it's time to move to the next site, the included compression and storage sack easily transport your bag while saving space in your pack.

    Warm and Packs Down Small

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

    This sleeping bag is much better than my previous one and provides plenty of comfort and warmth when camping. It packs down fairly small. I had plenty of room in a backpack with this and a sleeping pad in addition to the rest of my gear.

    Short size seems too short

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    I am a 5'3" female and 115lbs and found this bag to be too short even though I supposedly have 3 inches extra length. Also I feel like the zipper may have a tendency to snag. It seems like a nice bag otherwise. I will be returning it and opting for a different bag.

    A little too snug

    • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

    At a fit 208 lbs, 6'-0" tall and wide shoulders the bag was a little too snug shoulder to shoulder and my feet were pressing against the bottom of the regular bag. The max recommended height listed for Reg is 6' but I would take an inch or two off that especially if you have broader shoulders.

    Great Multi-use Bag

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    I have a couple of Cat's Meows for the family and I'm really happy with them. While not the lightest bag, it's still great for multi-night backpacking and awesome for car camping. Considering the abuse my kids dish out, they've both worn well, and are just as solid as the day I bought them. I don't think I've really tested their temperature rating, but they seem warm at least down to 32. Overall, I think this is a great bag for the price.

    Great Bag!

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I gave this as a gift. Here is what they had to say: My North Face Cat’s Meow sleeping bag arrived recently and I am very pleased with the quality of it. The stitching is well done and the color matches the picture from the website. The bag is also light in my hands, which bodes well for future camping trips. Although I have not had a chance to sleep in it, my feline companion, Frank, has made it his nest on many occasions. He always appears to be sleeping quite soundly on top of it. I now see how this sleeping bag got its name. What’s good enough for my cat is good enough for me.

    More like Lion's Roar

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I have been using this bag for nearly a decade, and it still performs like the day my father got it for me. This bag has been with me on numerous campouts; from desert excursion, to mountain backpacking, and it has done the job every time. One downside is that it is not the most packable bag, but it still can stuff down pretty small, just tends to be a tad on the heavy side. The mummy shape of it is quite loose, and even though I am a side-sleeper this bag does not bunch up when I move at night. The hood feature has saved me many a time at night when it gets cold, and I can just pull that down and keep warmth in. The temp rating on this is accurate; it does tend to get a bit chilly when the temperatures drop a bit below freezing. Even in the summer months this is a nice bag to use, being breathable and able to zip open real nice. Over-all this has been a great sleeping bag, and I would recommend to anyone looking for a reliable general sleeping bag.
