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, but mummy bags are not designed to accommodate this. With a unique Spoon shape, adding room at the elbows and knees, the Forte is a three-season synthetic men’s backpacking bag that is designed for side sleepers, and allows you to shift positions throughout the night.
The Forte has some of NEMO’s most popular features, including Thermo Gills that help regulate temperature during the night and Blanket Fold which provides tucked-in comfort. With an included cinch sack, the Forte packs down nice and tight for all your adventures. Zip together with the Women's Viola for a double bag.
Finally a truly comfortable sleeping bag for side sleepers. The Nemo Forte 20 Sleeping Bag has been designed in a 'spoon' shape (I would describe it more as a number 8) so its wider at the elbows and knees, meaning you can toss and turn as much as you want, without the bag restricting you.
What also makes it stand out is that it looks like it has 2 slits down the center of the bag, these are what Nemo call Thermo Grills. 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.
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.
These are just a few of many, well-thought-out features that this bag has to offer. If you're looking to share the comfort with your lady friend, the bag can also be zipped together with the women's Viola sleeping bags.
