The North Face Green Kazoo Sleeping Bag: 5 Degree Down
The North Face 5 Degree Green Kazoo Down Sleeping Bag will delight ultralight backpackers and three-season campers alike. It offers toasty warmth for cold spring, fall, or mild winter nights, while weighing in around or under three pounds (depending on length). You get all the benefits of goose down insulation: excellent warmth at a low weight, easy compressibility for stuffing in a pack, and durable loft that will last a lifetime. But you don't need to panic if the down gets wetthe Green Kazoo's ProDown insulation is treated to be water-repellent and quick-drying so it continues to perform if you're not out in perfectly dry conditions. The super-lightweight yet durable nylon ripstop face fabric and smooth taffeta lining are also water-repellent to protect both you and the bag from heat-robbing moisture. Built-in pads are placed at areas where your body makes the most contact with the ground, and are filled with anti-compression Climashield HL synthetic insulation for added warmth underneath you. A draft collar helps keep your body warmth in and the cool night air out. The Green 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 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 all over the place (and off) your sleeping pad, it includes sleeping pad attachment loops. The Green Kazoo compresses down into a 10x19-inch stuff sack for fitting inside your backpack, and when you get home, you can store it in the included larger storage sack.

Winter Sleeping Bags Checklist
||Insulation Type? For winter
camping, nothing is better than high-quality goose down. It's warmer
and less bulky. Yes, synthetic bags are ok (and less expensive),
but for wintner camping...goose down rules.
||Temperature Rating? Get
a bag rated to -40 degrees. Remember, just because a bag is rated
to -40, doesn't mean it will keep you warm at that temperature. Always
be safe and "add 10 to 20" degrees onto the temperature rating of
a sleeping bag.
||Don't Forget the Sleeping Pad! A
winter sleeping bag is useless without a thick sleeping
if you don't already have a sleeping pad designed for winter, be
sure to get one. Remember, sleeping pads are designed for BOTH warmth
||Don't Jerry-Rig a Three Season Bag
for Winter Use. It's not really possible to "jerry rig"
a three season bag to make it suitable for winter use. Many good
three-season bags keep you warmer when you sleep without clothing.
About the best you can do to "winterize" a three-season bag is
to insert a sleeping bag liner. But it's still a sorry substitute
for a quality four-season bag.
