    Toasty warmth for below-freezing temps, and room to move.

    You tend to get a little claustrophobic in tight-fitting mummy bags, but need a warm enough bag for night temperatures that dip below freezing. The North Face Furnace 5-Degree Down Sleeping Bag offers more room and a more relaxed fit than North Face's ultralight, backpacking-specific mummy sleeping bags, while still offering toasty down warmth down to about 9° F for the average man. The Furnace's 550-fill goose down is water-resistant for reliable performance when conditions aren't perfectly dry, and the water-repellent outer fabric and lining protect both you and the bag from heat-robbing moisture. Strategically placed synthetic insulation pads underneath you (made of 30% recycled material) add an extra layer of protection between you and the cold ground, and a draft collar helps keep your body warmth in and the cool night air out. The insulation is evenly distributed from top to bottom so you don't get uncomfortable cold spots when you're moving around in the sleeping bag.

    The Furnace's relaxed mummy shape allows the bag to stay more thermally efficient than a rectangular sleeping bag, and the fitted hood with a drawcord keeps the area around your head warm. A vaulted foot box offers roomy vertical space for your feet. The bag is outfitted with a convenient, non-snagging two-way zipper (nice if you're using the bag in warmer conditions and would love some fresh air around your feet), and the zipper pull glows in the dark to make unzipping in the middle of the night or before dawn less of a hassle. The highly compressible Furnace packs down into a 10x19-inch size for fitting inside your backpack, and its down insulation lofts back up when you take it out for optimal warmth, again and again.

    Borderline at 20

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    Taken this bag on a few Midwest mule hunts and some spring/fall camping. Decent at best in the 20s and won't hold up under that. It's a sturdy bag that's held up well to much use but no good when the temps drop.

    Super warm but not ultra compressible

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought this as my first sleeping bag. I wanted a bag that would allow me to do some winter camping as well. I sleep very hot so I didnt go for a bag that was rated below zero.

    The Furnace 5 is really warm and kept me very comfortable in single digits while camping in Northern MN this past winter. So much so I would be sweating. I didnt dare open up in fear Id catch a cold though. I wore nothing but boxers, a single longsleeve C9 thermal top and a pair of socks and I still felt warm even when it was around 8 degrees with wind chill. This bag is truly a furnace!

    I have used it as additional padding while summer camping. I slept in my liner and laid on top and that along with my sleeping pad, I felt very comfortable.

    The material is very durable and while it doesnt have the greatest down fill (550), it does the job.

    One down side is it doesnt compress that small at all. It needs a 15L compression sack. That is pretty big to shove inside a backpack.

    I just bought the marmot hydrogen for a more compressible sleeping bag. The NF Furnace 5 will remain my forever go to for winter camping when its in the singls digits.

    I love this bag and if the compressed size isnt an issue for you, this is a wonderful buy. The price is awesome and I love the dark evergreen colour. Seems like all mens bags are a shade of blue, grey or red.

    If you are a person thag doesn't get cold too easily and sleeps hot, I would definitely check this bag out.

    Great sleeping bag

      This is a great sleeping bag. It is a perfect combination between budget and high end low temp bag.
      Yes, it's a bit bulky due to its synthetic/down fill but it's not a big deal. I managed to compress it into a relative small size. I slept in it in a 15 degree weather and it was more than warm enough- I'm sure it can keep warm even in lower temps.
      Great buy for a great price.

      Not for backpacking!

      • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

      This would be a great car camping sleeping bag. The bag is not 100% down. The top is down the bottom you lay on is synthetic, heavy and doesn't pack down. All the descriptions I read were misleading.

      Hi Sheryl,
      I'm sorry about your experience with the Furnace. The idea that TNF had is synthetic holds heat better than true down when compressed that's why they put it in the bottom. However, it will compromise compression and weight. Let me know if you need any help choosing a sleeping bag that better fits your needs.

      Thanks,

      We were cold even at +40F

        We had high hopes for the North Face 550 Pro 5F (-15C) down sleeping bags. However when we used them on two consecutive nights this week near Chetwynd, BC, at temperatures that never fell below +40F, we were very disappointed to find that we were uncomfortably cool inside the bags. Not freezing cold but too cool for a sleeping bag rated to keep people warm at +5F. There was high humidity, but still there was no reason to be so uncomfortably cool in such a highly rated bag. I would not recommend this bag for anything except mild weather camping.

        Excelent gear, great price

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        I bought this sleeping bag a long time ago, i have used it from Los Andes snowy mountains, to Denali National Park on fall, it is very easy to compress, some times i have to open it because is really warm inside, odor resistant, insulates even using it as a blanket, at the picture we got 32F at night, and some rain catch me, but surprisingly it keeps me warm, the last thing.. my sleeping pad deflate late that night.

        Excelent gear, great price

        Wish I could use it all year

        • Familiarity: I've used it several times

        Its a shame its a 5 degree bag. I love this thing. In the winter its so warm and cozy. I use it October-February here. Anything below 30 until 0. Wish I could use it in the summer, it is so freaking comfortable.

        Best sleeping bag I have owned

        • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

        used throughout the eastern sierras march through october. The warmth, loft, and feel is unmatched for the money! It is a bit warm for the summer months, but I just sleep on top of it. I have used this bag every night both camping and indoors for the last 6 months and it is still going strong.

        Just got this bag in the mail today, sweet! What size compression sack would work well for this guy? I tried a 7+ liter and that seemed to be a bit too small. Do you think a 10 liter would work well? Please no guessing, I need the straight scoop from someone who owns or is familiar with this model bag. Thanks!

        Laurie, You can do a compression sack that is the same measurements as the stuff sack, or larger. If you go larger, you can put other clothes in there as well. So, you could do the APS Mountaineering Compression sack in size large, and it would fit nicely. Or you could do the XL and it would be very easy to stuff, plus, you could throw some clothes in there, if you wanted! Shoot me any other questions you may have.

        What size compression sack does this take?
