The North Face Dolomite Sleeping Bag: 20 Degree Synthetic


Product Details

Car-camping and sleepovers don't require Everest-style gear, but they do call for warm, comfortable sleeping bags like The North Face Dolomite 20-Degree Synthetic. With a tapered rectangular shape that offers a lot more room than a mummy bag and wrap-around footbox zipper that lets you use the it as a comforter on warmer nights, the Dolomite's ideal for mellow three-season campground nights, and comfortable enough to throw on the couch when you're crashing at a friends' place. It's totally down for night spend under the stars, too, since the 30% recycled Heatseeker Eco synthetic insulation stays warm if it gets damp, so the morning dew won't spell the end of your night's sleep.

Price : $ 98.95

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.
