Comments about North Face The North Face Elkhorn 0F Sythetic Sleeping Bag - Regular Size:

so my classmate and I camped out on Mt. Hood in Oregon last weekend. It was nasty cold with 6" of snow around us. (I did sleep in some sweat pants and a NF fleece) not once did I get cold! It had to have gotten well below 0deg out. Great bag. I am ordering one right now! Heck for the price... Whoop whoop!

Comments about North Face The North Face Elkhorn 0F Sythetic Sleeping Bag - Regular Size:

I took this bag and another brand on a winter campout to compare them. They are both rated for 0 degrees. The North Face really is a zero degree bag, I was warm in TNF bag and froze in the other bag the next night. Both nights the temp got down to 15 degrees. I started out dressed the same on both nights until I got cold in the other bag. I noticed TNF bag dries fast if it has codensation on it. This North Face bag is definately worth the money.

Comments about North Face The North Face Elkhorn 0F Sythetic Sleeping Bag - Regular Size:

Having never owned a zero-degree bag before, I am happy with my purchase. I use a light liner with this bag, one that is supposed to increase the warmth factor by 8F I believe.

I have used this bag in several consecutive sub 30F nights and never got cold. I wore a typical winter hat and never even had to use the hood on this thing (actually, I did use the hood to hold my camp pillow in place). I never got the bag wet, so I cannot review its drying capability.

The bag does not compress to be extremely small, but I have seen much more expensive 0F bags that compress to about the same size.

Overall, very satisfied customer. Just know that a bag like this is comfortable down to 25-30F, and that 0F is quite an extreme condition to use this bag in (I'm guessing).
