Durable and Well-Priced

With beefy draft tubes around the hood and along the full-length zipper, glow-in-the dark zipper pulls, and 600-fill goose down, the 15-degree Hotlum is built to the same general specs as fancier (and more expensive) bags in the North Face's line. The only difference is that the company used some less-pricey fabrics and ditched some of the cool little features, like strategically placed synthetic-fill compression pads that up the comfort factor. But if you're like most of our test crew, you won't miss them. "I crawled inside, fell asleep, and didn't give the bag a second thought," said one tester. 15º; 3.1 lbs;
Compressibility: 4
Warmth-to-Weight: 3.8
