C.The North Face Blue Kazoo 20-Degree Sleeping Bag has 600+ fill down that plays a toasty tune down to below freezing temps. Extremely compressible and durable, this is the classic North Face all-around backpacker's bag. As usual, The North Face has constructed this bag with the utmost detail. Listing all of the Blue Kazoo's technical features is enough to put you to sleep, so we'll cut to the chase. Its silken lining feels wonderfully soft on your skin, and it's breathable so your funk doesn't fester inside your bag all night. Heat traps and draft tubes minimize heat loss throughout. The Blue Kazoo is so comfy, you'll say to hell with seeing the sun rise over Lone Peak, and instead choose to sleep in. But just in case, The North Face has integrated an ear-level watch pocket so you're up in time. When you go to rest your weary head, stuff the Blue Kazoo's external pillow pocket with your down or fleece jacket and voilĂ ! Instant pillow. Store your Blue Kazoo in its nylon/mesh storage bag so the down doesn't lose its loft and pack it in its stuffsack when you're on the go in the backcountry.

Bottom Line: Stay toasty in below freezing weather with the classic Blue Kazoo.
