BEST FOR: Side sleepers, comfort seekers.

THE TEST: Around 70 percent of people sleep on their sides, yet until now sleeping bags weren’t designed that way. Enter Nemo’s new line of spoon-shaped bags, cut to fit a body turned sideways: traditional width at the shoulders, narrower through the hips, and wider at the knees and feet. If it seems insignificant, it’s not. Several side-sleeping testers were convinced that they slept more soundly thanks to the Nocturne’s shape. And while everyone liked that the foot of the bag is wrapped in condensation-reflecting, waterproof-breathable fabric, not everyone was nuts about the clingy-when-damp liner.

THE VERDICT: Smart new design; light, comfortable, and highly packable. 30˚; 2 lbs.
