Best for Cold, Wet Weather

This is a great price for any zero-degree-rated bag, never mind one stuffed with PrimaLoft Infinity, a top-shelf but affordable synthetic insulation with a great loft-to-compressibility ratio. Just don't expect the same fabrics and tailoring as on high-end bags. There's no ergonomic footbox, and the hood is a bit constricting. All the same, even our coldest-sleeping testers stayed plenty warm on a rain-and-snow-plagued November trip in Washington's Cascades. Bigger guys, take note: The cut is a bit shorter and svelter than most. If you're over six feet tall, check out the long version for only $10 more. 0º; 3.7 lbs; llbean.com
Compressibility: 3.5
