  The North Face, Tundra Review By the Everest GearGal


 

The North Face Tundra sleeping bag is one piece of gear that won’t let you down when the going gets rough, cold or wet. This synthetic bag is insulated with Polarguard® Delta fill, much stronger and more durable then earlier technology ever dreamed possible. The Tundra’s high loft insulation has a comfort rating down to –20°F (-29°C) yet remains highly compressible and weighs in at just 4 pounds. 

The Tundra is packed full of luxury features designed to ensure that the only thing frozen in the morning is the unfortunate water bottle your tent mate forgot to bury. This sub-zero bag is made for extremely cold conditions. The adjustable draft collar keeps the warmth generated from your body in, while the full-length draft tube makes sure it stays in and doesn’t escape through the zipper. The overlapping shingle construction keeps the insulation evenly distributed, making cold spots a thing of the past. 

BottomLine taffeta allows an adventure seeker to sleep just about anywhere under the stars in the Tundra, as it protects the bottom of the outer shell from abrasion. The top of the shell is made with Firestorm™ fabric, durable and water-resistant. While the outer shell of this bag is as rugged as you are (possibly more) the inside is lined with Silken. This soft, breathable lining is soft on the skin after a hard days work, yet strong enough to prevent fiber from poking through, helping the Tundra keep its loft.    

Smaller and more personable features were not overlooked in the Tundra. This serious cold weather bag is complete with easy-grab pull tabs on the zippers, one-hand and color-coded pull cords allow for quick hood adjustments from inside the bag and the cloth-lined zipper means no snagging. You’ll rest easy with your head on the external pillow pocket knowing you won’t miss morning coffee with the alarm set and safely stowed in the head-level watch pocket.
