You might find yourself asking, what's so great about the NEMO Forte 20 Men's Synthetic Sleeping Bag? For starters, Forte features Primaloft RISE insulation, which is fully synthetic and made from 80% post-consumer recycled materials, letting you sleep soundly knowing that no animals were harmed to keep you warm at night. This eco-friendly insulator also rivals the compressibility of 650-fill down, meaning that you can get everything you love from synthetic insulation like natural water resistance and a lower price point, without your sleeping bag taking up every inch of space in your backpack. The classic spoon shape trims unnecessary weight and materials but adds room where side sleepers need it most, at the elbows and knees, letting you sleep as comfortably in your bag as you do at home in your bed. With a built-in pillow pocket to keep you from waking up with a stiff neck and built-in Thermo Gill vents to cool you off on warm nights, the Forte excels in just about every category. So, what's so great about it? We think a better question is, what's not great about it?
