Nemo's Forte 20F Men's Sleeping bag is ideal for campers that want a mummy-cut bag that provides comfort when sleeping on their side. This synthetic sleeping bag is lightweight and quite lofty. Meanwhile, the bag is constructed in a classic spoon shape style and allows extra room for the elbows and knees and ease of shifting positions throughout the night.

Key Features:

  • Primaloft RISE – This sleeping bag is updated with Primaloft RISE insulation, featuring 80% post-consumer recycled content. It weighs less than conventional synthetic insulation while still providing superior heat retention and water resistance.
  • Thermo Gills – An integrated feature in the bag allows users to vent heat out without letting in external cold air.
  • Blanket Fold – This technology boasts an external draft collar and a full-length draft tube that provides temperature regulation through a tucked-in comfort style.

Pretty Good For bigger guys

Originally posted at www.nemoequipment.com on Dec 29, 2023
I'm 6ft 250lbs with very broad shoulders. I decided to go with the long since the shoulder circumference was 3" bigger than the regular; if my shoulders weren't so broad I'd have gotten the regular.. Even though I've got a bit of extra room in the toe box my feet weren't too cold when I had it in 31F/-1C weather. That said, it was still a little bit tight in the shoulders. The neck collar was fantastic, but the zipper baffle did have a few gaps around my shoulders that let some cool air in around my shoulders. I added the blaze bag liner and that helped a lot. The zipper did snag a couple times but was easy to unsnag. I also found the hood to be a little oversized and difficult to cinch down, but I think that's more of a user error issue I'll work out with time. The straps on my compression sack popped off at the stitches, but customer services was great with replacing it - prompt response with zero hastle. I'd definitely recommend this for broader folks and side sleepers. The only thing stopping it from being an excellent bag is the zipper snagging which happens a little too often to be dismissed. Otherwise, I love it.

Great Bag......Just TOO TIGHT!!

Originally posted at www.nemoequipment.com on Sep 9, 2023
Overall, sleeping bag is very comfortable material. I camped 3 nights straight, when the weather was 85/60. Going to bed at night was boarderline uncomfortable, but, this bag material really made it feel much better. The reason it is 3star.....Im an average size Man, 5'9" - 210lbs. I am a side sleeper, and toss and turn. This sleeping bag was very tight on my body. There was hardly no extra room inside, even to move my arms to a different position. I felt pinned down inside it, fully zipped. Maybe this is the design to keep the material close to the body, so the body heat stays in....not sure, but it was uncomfortable at times.

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!

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.
