"Wow! Although this bag is a little expensive, I found it to be well worth the money. It was perfect for a two week expedition to Arizona and New Mexico, where it can get QUITE CHILLY at night. Pretty light, and very compressable. This bag has given me a whole new respect for The North Face and their products."

"I recently bought this bag
from a packing buddy and
found it to be a comfortable
and light weight bag. I used
it recently and it had good
protection from the wind and
precipitation that was formed"

"I bought this bag to accompany me on a climb up Mt. Rainier. I was toasty warm without the need for excessive layers. Recently, I also used this bag for regular camping at the base of the Grand Canyon where nighttime temps were quite warm. I was very comfortable in this bag without having to strip down to next to nothing. Got the bag caught in the tent zipper twice in the mountains and yanked out without a tear. Nice lightweight design too. I'm very pleased."

"I'm a warm sleeper, and I have used this bag on numerous winter excursions in Northern Minnesota....no problem. I compress it to about the size of a pea, leaving room for all sorts of other camp luxuries. Its lightweight, durable, and fairly inexpensive."

"Great Bag. I was on the AT in GA 2 weeks ago, and the temp. was in the low 20s and I was very warm. I've also used the bag extensively in warmer weather (40s-50s) and actually did not get too hot. I am a fairly warm sleeper, so for me I think the temp. rating is fairly accurate. Very lighweight and very compressible."

"I am very pleased with the Blue Kazoo. If you are a warm sleeper and do not wear much clothing in the bag, you will really appreciate the soft, silky inner lining . And with some thermal layer, it kept me toasty during some nights with below zero wind chills. The zipped up hood kept my head warm (i cannot keep a cap on while sleeping)and draft collar kept wind out. It is very light and compresses down to a very small size. The under flap makes a fine pillow when stuffed with clothes or fleece jacket. I am short, but i got a long bag and stuff bottom with fleece blanket for added foot warmth and insulation if my bag comes in contact with sides of tent.
It is very comfortable in mild temperatures as well.."

"I got my Blue Kazoo a few years ago and have been mostly satisfied with it. I am 6ft and I have a tall but I still would like more room. I also have found you need a full length pad or you will feel the ground temp coming through. I have used it in temps down to the teens without any trouble. It stuffs very small and overall is a very nice bag, I will keep it for years to come."

"I've used this bag during three winter trips in Indiana and Virgina, and I've woken up warm and happy each time.

Even the extra-long version compresses well, and it was fairly inexpensive. I imagine that it will serve me well for years to come."

"After researching down bags for a few months, I decided on the Blue Kazoo based on it's tried and true reputation and cheap price (paid $120). At 3 lbs. its not the lightest bag on the market but you have to spend $80-$100 more to get a full-featured bag at or near 2 lbs. It's kept me warm just below freezing in just boxers and a t-shirt so I've no doubt about the 20 degree rating. The DWR finish repels moisture very well, the packed size is small, and the durability is top notch. Simply put, a classic, versatile, all around winner in a 3 season bag."

"On the positive side:
I have had mine for 30 years. Yes you read that right- 30 yrs. and still using it! Slept fine when the temps dropped into the low 20's a few years back....Great bag.
A fellow packer sent his in to TNF for down being degraded. They stuffed it per his order and it is better than when he bought it.

Negative- nothing.

A good inexpensive bag..."
