The North Face Cat's Meow has been made by The North Face for years — it's the classic introductory sleeping bag for outdoor recreation - and for good reason; because it's inexpensive and comfortable, it's a good choice for short summer backpacking trips. However, it has had an update since we last tested it in 2014 and we think that the updates did not improve the bag overall. It is relatively lightweight for a synthetic sleeping bag and warmer than any other synthetic bag in this review. It beats out other budget bags such as the Slumberjack Boundary 20 - Women's and the Marmot Trestles 30 - Women's by a lot.
The North Face has given the Cat's Meow a slight makeover for 2018. Check out the details below.
