"I bought my Big Foot in 1979 to handle the winter portions of an end to end walk of the Appalachian Trail. I've used it in temperatures down to minus 10 F and been quite comfortable. Due to a leaky tent, I've even had the opportunity to sleep in it in freezing temperatures when it was downright wet. No problems, it was still warm. The only down side is it's bulk and weight. I know I could use a down bag to solve these negatives, but hiking as I do in the Southern Appalachians where precipitation is frequent, I like to know that when things go wrong, wet or dry, I'll be warm. It is, after all, your final refuge. It still looks great after almost 30 years and many many miles."

"After over eight years of regular use, my Bigfoot 0 degree F bag
has widthstood some of nature's most grueling situations. Three
days of straight rain, accompianied by temps of around 35 degrees
F did not even come close to phasing the warming power of the
bag. I wouldn't trade my North Face for the world!"

"I have a North Face Bigfoot that I purchased in 1979. It was rated at -5 with Polarguard insulation. I have used it moderately over the years and it looks like new. I have used it in temps below 30 quite often and I was as warm as can be. On a cold night recently I found the bag to be completely comfortable even though it was very damp from a leaking tarp.

I love it!"
