The North Face Blue Kazoo is a
classic three-season backpacking sleeping bag with a twist. The twist is that
it has just enough luxury components and warmth to double as a mountaineering
bag. More bang for your buck and this bag wont break your wallet. You can use
your fleece for a pillow (easy to do as this bag has a external pillow pocket)
instead of an extra layer while sleeping in this 20 degree (-7C), 600+fill
goose down sleeping bag. Your head will thank you while wrapped within the
five-chamber insulated hood complete with a forehead comfort tube and
chest-level heat trap baffle.
The rest of your body will
sleep in comfort while wrapped within a soft, breathable silken liner. This
lining is a sinful luxury for the backcountry, yet strong enough to prevent
down and fiber from breaking through and into the bag. The Blue Kazoo’s ripple
construction keeps the down evenly distributed, which prevents shifting and
cold spots from occurring. The ripple construction coupled with a full-length
draft tube, that eliminates heat loss through the zipper, is sure to keep you
warm even on cold mountain passes.
Should the stars beckon…this
bag is ready! BottomLine taffeta on the bottom of the outer shell offers
lightweight protection against sleeping on granite or pinecones. The top of
this bag is protected by lightweight, Pertex® Resist ripstop fabric which not
only keeps down and fiber insulation from poking through but also resists
moisture, allowing you to stay warm and dry despite the dew covering the bag.
The Blue Kazoo is a feature
full bag that won’t let you down. Whether taking advantage of the easy-grab
pull tabs located on the zipper for a quick getaway in the middle of the
night, or the head-level watch pocket to make sure you hit the summit by 10am,
this bag has the amenities you need while weighing in at just 3 lbs.
