The North Face Blue Kazoo Sleeping Bag: 15 Degree Down - Women's


Product Details

With the North Face Women's Blue Kazoo 15-Degree Down Sleeping Bag, you won't be forced to shiver yourself to sleep just to save a pound or two in your backpack. It offers dependable three-season warmth down to 26F for the average woman, while weighing in at under three pounds to the delight of backpackers concerned with keeping weight down. The Blue Kazoo features lofty, water-resistant goose down, strategically placed synthetic insulation pads underneath you, and water-repellent fabric to keep you comfortable in variable conditions. The goose down is highly compressible for easy packing and continues to loft back up for optimal warmth, again and again. Both the lightweight and durable nylon face fabric and smooth taffeta lining are water-repellent to protect both you and the bag from heat-robbing moisture, and a draft collar helps keep your body warmth in and the cool night air out. Special vertical baffles along the sides of the bag prevent cold spots by keeping the insulation from shifting. The Blue Kazoo's mummy shape and fitted hood keeps bulk and weight to a minimum, and optimizes warmth inside the bag and around your head. A vaulted foot box offers roomy vertical space for your feet so they don't feel trapped in place. The women's Blue Kazoo feature's a women-specific fit with more room at the hips and slightly less at the shoulders than the men's bag, and women-specific insulation, with more around the chest and 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 dark less of a hassle. To keep the bag from sliding off your sleeping pad, it includes sleeping pad attachment loops. The Blue Kazoo compresses down into a 9x17-inch stuff sack for fitting inside your backpack, and when you get home, you can store it in the included larger storage sack.

Price : $ 298.95

Three Season Sleeping Bags Checklist

Down vs. Synthetic. The age-old question. Down bags pack down tighter and are a few ounces lighter. On the negative side, they are useless when wet, often take forever to dry (and many can't be tossed into a dryer), and tend to be more expensive.
Heading Out in Wet Weather? Then get a synthetic sleeping bag...period. This way, if your bag gets wet, you won't have a useless sleeping bag for the rest of your trip.
Float Camping? Again...get a synthetic bag. Be a bummer to have your bag end up in the water and become useless for the rest of your float trip.
Where Ounces and Packability Matter. Then go with a goose down bag. This is especially true if you are a bike camper, climber or camp in the desert.
