Fabulous bag for side sleepers.

Originally posted at www.nemoequipment.com on Sep 10, 2023
I was so excited when I read the reviews and description of this sleeping bag. I am a side sleeper and have found my other mummy bags restricting and hard to sleep on my side. I was so comfortable and impressed with this bag. It kept me extra warm. I liked having a stuff bag to pack the sleeping bag into as well as a storage bag when left at home. I’d highly recommend this sleeping bag!

Cozy but zipper issues

Originally posted at www.nemoequipment.com on Aug 24, 2023
I have the same complaint as some others about having gendered zippers. It doesn't make sense when other companies offer the choice of zipper on the left or right, especially if you're emphasizing that your bags can be zipped together. You're alienating your queer customer base. I've seen those comments from years ago that you're "doing something about it". Do better, Nemo. Not to mention that once I did actually zip my Forte up with another Forte (men's endless promise), my zipper was several inches longer despite both being the long size. And after my first trip, the material in the heat vents has caught in the zipper, rendering it useless. Great idea (we did use them) but poor execution.

Came to the site again (with previous good experience from other departments) in need of a tent and footprint-- Elizabeth was great with recommendations and offering more options that stayed within the budget but weren't on the radar to begin with. That and helping with other recommendations generally for hiking/camping, she is greatly appreciated!

She not only answered my questions but also gave great advice. The article she sent had amazing tips and was easy to read. She was super friendly and everything she typed seem to have a smile attached. I have already recommended this site to a few people because of her.

I was looking for a weather proof tent for a homeless veteran. I thought I needed 4 season 1 person. Jeffrey recommended 3 season, 2 person since it's California. No snow.
