NEMO Equipment Inc. Disco 30 Sleeping Bag: 30F Down
That perfect time between ski-season and summer.
There's no better way to transition from ski resort closures to summer heat than spring-time camping in the desert, so pack up your Disco 30 Sleeping Bag by NEMO Equipment and head south. This three-season, down-insulated sleeping bag is ideal for shoulder season in the desert and summers in the alpine, while it's unique construction is made for spacious sleepers so you can sleep comfortably wherever you find yourself outside the city. Designed with NEMO Equipment's Spoon shape, this bag is made with extra room in the knees and elbows to give you more room for sleeping on your side.
Equipped with water-resistant down and a waterproof foot box, the down insulation stays dry and retains heat against rain-soaked tent walls or humid, southern weather. And intuitively designed for when you get too hot or cold, the Blanket Fold draft collar gives you a tucked in feeling that holds in your body heat, while the unique Thermo Gills ventilation lets you release heat without letting in cold drafts. When you want to get extra cozy, insert the NEMO Equipment's Fillo pillow to the integrated pillow pocket or zip together with the women's Rave sleeping bag.

- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
My kids and I go 3-season camping about once a month here in California, where park temperatures can range from low 30s to the los 70s in the evenings. My current REI bags excel in mid 40’s to low 60’s, but below it gets cold and above it gets too warm. We also have REI and Thermo-rest foam pads have R ratings of over 8 for the fall and spring, but it can still get pretty chilly.
Enter the Nemo disco 30. Initial impressions are VERY good. I really like how light the bag is (down really is a lot lighter), and that lightness makes a material different in the comfort of the bag. There are nice touches throughout, with a slot for a pillow, a slot for a phone, the outer ventilation zippers etc. The only difference I see between this discounted version of the bag ($154 currently) and the 2020 version ($269) are the color and the zipper. The 2020 has a much nicer zipper, but not $120 nicer :)
The space inside is also very good. I have a North Face mummy bag, and while that keeps me very warm, it is also quite uncomfortable, as I get quite squeezed in them.
I am 5’11”, 175lbs with an athletic build.
I will update this review after our first trip this season later this month.
Spoon-Shaped Bag for Side Sleepers
I bought this for my daughter who needed a new sleeping bag for a school trip. She is the type of kid that is either hot or cold when sleeping. When she returned from the school trip we asked how she slept. Her words " I loved the sleeping bag and looked forward to getting in it each night"
