The North Face Hightail 900 Sleeping Bag

By Editor | November 6, 2008

the north face hightail 900 sleeping bag

Peer into the semitranslucent shell of the Hightail and you’ll see a mishmash of down plumes. What you’re looking at is 900-fill Eastern European goose down, the gold standard for lightweight sleeping bag fill. In the real world, that translates into a bag that packs down smaller than a loaf of bread, tips the scales under two pounds and will keep you toasty down to a chilly -10 degrees.

Keep in mind, the white shell fabric is bound to get dirty quickly-which might be a good thing if it forces you to wash your bag more than once a decade.

Best suited to Weight-conscious hikers and mountaineers looking for three-season comfort.

Rated: -10 degrees Weight: 0.8 kg, 1.71bs,   Price:  $450 USD
