Why We Like It

The North Face Cat's Meow sleeping bag has been around since 1977. This latest version continues the tried-and-true tradition of being an excellent all-around sleeping bag. The North Face's proprietary Heatseker Guide synthetic insulation keeps the weight down and the warmth up, while also drying up to 4x faster than down bags – making this a great bag for wetter weather.

The Cat's Meow sleeping bag is by no means the lightest nor most compactable bag on the market, however it will undoubtedly keep you warm, cozy, and dry without weighing you down or requiring you to dip too far into your beer fund.
