Keeps warm at a reasonable price,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Coleman North Rim 0 Degree Sleeping Bag (Sports)
I received this bag the day of an over-night "Cold Camp" adventure. I had fears as in the previous year, my prior bag was not up to the single digit temperature task of keeping me warm. Much to my delight as this bag arrived at my work, I found that it was plush, fabric felt nice, and had a good weight to it. I understood that with the lower price of this bag, I wouldn't be getting a 0 degree bag that was as light or as small as my summer bag, and accepted these "issues". After opening the included Coleman carry bag, I knew that it would be a treat to get the bag back in there. Do yourself a favor and pick up a medium sized Compression Sack. This will make travel for you and the bag MUCH easier.
The bag was put to the test that night as the temps dropped rapidly from the teens to the single digits. I was fearful throughout the evening as we cooked our hot dogs and brats. I saw the Coleman North Rim bag sitting beneath my lean-to tarp shelter. I feared how cold it would get, but alas around midnight, as everyone made the slow move to their bags, I hopped in and immediately felt wonderfully comfortable. My chest, head, and feet (as soon as damp socks were removed) warmed up in short order. I couldn't have asked for more. A huge bonus is the bag has a "curtain" that adds some extra insulation between your head and shoulder area. It acted a bit like a pillow for me, and aided in keeping me toasty warm.
Stats on evening:
Bag: Coleman North Rim 0-Degree Mummy
Sleeping Pad: Big Agnes Insulated air core
Tent: NA (Open air lean-to)
Fire: Nice hot coals approximately 6+ feet away
Temperature: 5 degrees Fahrenheit
Wore synthetic long underwear and sweatshirt in sleeping bag.
I can not comment on longevity of this sleeping bag. Been used once, but feel it will last.

THANK YOU so much for the "stats" paragraph; hardly anyone gives a review with all the needed factors listed, but you did.
