This spoon shaped backpacking bag is designed for side sleepers, with generous room at elbows and knees, and allows for maximum temperature regulation with Nemo's award-winning Thermo Gills feature.
Seventy percent of people sleep on their side, yet mummy bags are not designed to accommodate this. Forte™ has been updated with Primaloft’s, lightweight, ultra-lofty and supremely resilient RISE insulation featuring 80% post-consumer recycled content. Forte’s classic Spoon™ shape provides a generous cut at the elbows and knees so side sleepers can shift positions comfortably throughout the night.

The highly successful Nemo Forte 20 Sleeping Bag has been updated for 2020 with new insulation and fabrics. It retains the comfotable and spacious 'spoon' shape so it is still wider at the elbows and knees, meaning you can toss and turn as much as you want, without the bag restricting you.
The main updates are the move to top quality Primaloft insulation. There is less insulation used in this updated version but it retains the same -7°C Comfort Limit. The inner and outer fabrics have also both changed in order to reduce weight without sacrificing warmth or durability.
Nemo have kept the innovative Thermo Gills which are shown by the 2 slits down the center of the bag. They unzip to let warm air out if you get too hot at night, allowing you to vent body heat without letting cold drafts in and they work really well, especially in changeable conditions.
Another feature it has that is quite unique to Nemo bags, is the Blanket Fold. Like a comforter at home, the blanket fold gives some extra material to snuggle around your face and helps to control temperature. The Forte bags are still able to zip together with the womens bags if that is something that you want in your bag.
