Nights spent out of doors aren't always deep in the backcountry, but it's tough to bring your bed from home even if you're camping out in the backyard. Sierra Designs' Frontcountry 600 Sleeping Bag aims to bring the comfort of home to your camping adventures with a blend of synthetic and down insulation and a roomy cut that will keep you warm and comfortable when you're getting your outdoor beauty rest.Water-resistant DriDown insulation keeps heat from escaping out the top of the Frontcountry, while durable and compression-resistant synthetic insulation lines the bottom to keep the cold ground from sapping your warmth. Insulated hand and arm pockets provide convenient spots for fingers when the night gets chilly, and the Frontcountry's integrated comforter seals naturally around your body whether you sleep on your side, back, or belly. It's also completely zipperless with a wide front opening that allows you to stretch without letting in drafts. The bag sports a generous rectangular cut that lets you spread out, and it has a hood that easily fits standard pillows.

I bought this bag because I am a big girl and hate feeling confined. I was looking for a down bag or comforter that was roomy enough for me to sleep and move in and still packs down reasonably small. I tried out a lot of bags before this and I am so far very impressed with this innovative design. To make sure I had space I got the long bag.
The bag is roomy. I can sleep comfortably and there is space for my 14 month old to climb in with me. I can twist and turn without feeling trapped. Because I bought the longer bag I can snuggle down into it a little deeper and pull the comforter around my head and neck.
It packs down light and small. While it is billed as a "front country" bag I would be comfortable packing this in my backpack.
Cozy. The comforter and zipper less design make getting snuggled down very easy and cozy. You can adjust everything and not have to worry about drafts or snags.
Customizable. The one thing I loathe even more than feeling trapped is sleeping with a cold nose. The hood and comforter make it easy to cover what I want covered without overheating or feeling smothered. I can tuck things around my head to leave my mouth uncovered but keep my nose warm.
It is only 2 seasons. I camp in a lot of desert areas and it gets quite cold at nights so I am concerned that it may not be warm enough.
The thinner down fill shifts a bit and does have some thin spots.
Not sure how I feel about the hands free footbox vent design yet. I keep accidentally sticking my feet out while climbing in but that may work out as I get used to the bag.
I would really like to see this bag with an 800 fill and a slightly fuller bottom fill however so far I am very happy with this bag and look forward to this camping season.
We've been out several times and I can say I LOVE this bag. I have never been cold, I can move and sleep comfortably. I eventually got the hang of the foot box design and no longer accidentally stick my feet out. I am totally thrilled not to have to deal with toggles, cords, and draft collars when getting in and out and I really haven't had issues being cold even when it's chilly out. I would still like to see it in a higher fill weight but overall this is a great bag.
The sleeping mat pocket worked flawlessly with my Therm-a-Rest NeoAir All Season Sleeping Pad. The pad never moved and I was able to sleep without any hip or shoulder pain.
Another big plus was that my pillow tucked inside the top of the bag and didn't move anywhere.
The only downside was that it felt like a lot of dampness collected on the inside of the sleeping bag. I might try a sleeping bag liner to see if that help.
Temps were in the low 40s the night we camped and I know that I would be comfortable in this bag and temps lower than that so I believe it lives up to it's temperature rating.
It might be a little on the big size for backpacking but I was able to get it in my bag by placing it in a compression sack. It ended up being about the same size as my boyfriend's NorthFace bag that he got chilly in. The comfort of this bag is worth the extra space in my opinion.
