      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      good and well designed bag if you take care of it.

      When you camp there is always the priority of having a good way to sleep comfortable so that you can rest properly and recover the energy to continue exploring the next day, otherwise you will be knackered due to a bad nights sleep. It is also very important to be warm enough, especially if you are camping in cold areas so a good material that warms you up in the night to avoid getting a cold during your holidays, which, let us face it, would be disastrous, consequently ruining your experience that was meant to discover and enjoy.

      You will not have to worry about these issues with the North Face Superlight, which also has the advantage of being, as its name claims, very light. This means you will barely feel it attached to your backpack while you hike. I am not particularly strong so when I go backpacking I always want my pack to be as light as possible. This is really good for your back, as a great part of the injury or tiredness you get when you camp or hike is due to carrying a lot of weight on your back.

      The product quality is quite good, but there is an issue I must say, even if this brand is deemed to be the best in this kind of equipment. The sewing that keeps the goose feathers in the bag, started to come apart. I am not really sure how it happened, it might have been an accident catching a rock or twig that tore it a bit, but in any case, I think they should use a more resistant thread to ensure more durability.

      It is intended for cold weather and is it definitely very warm. I like that you have the choice in zip position and even size with this sleeping bag, although I am not very tall, tall people have the option of a longer zip. The zip is also a bit glow in the dark which is useful for having to get up in the night to go to the toilet. With previous sleeping bags, I always had to spent a minute or two feeling around for the zip!

      I am very pleased with this sleeping bag, so if you can afford it then go for it!
