The Night Cap is based on the hugely popular Cloud with the same innovative zipless opening with oversized comforter really works especially for people who move around during the night, people looking for extra room and quick temperature control.
Sierra Designs says:
Based on our bestselling Cloud, but now in a lower cost, fully recycled synthetic package, the Night Cap features a zipperless design with an integrated comforter for all the comforts of home in the backcountry. The Night Cap also incorporates our patented self-sealing foot vent and a pad sleeve, allowing increased ventilation for hot sleepers and movability for wiggle worms, side, and stomach sleepers.

Sierra Design's Night Cap is the synthetic fill version of the unique Cloud 800 sleeping bag. There are a number of practical features that you only truly appreciate once you're using the bag. The zipless, quilt style opening that wraps around you seems like a gimmick until you get to enjoy how easily you can get in and out of it. The opening has an oversized comforter which acts like a quilt so you can really wrap yourself up in it if the temperatures drop. Alternatively you can quickly and easily open it up to dump heat if you're too hot.
The bottom of the bag has a generously sized sleeping mat sleeve that keeps your mat in place through the night even if you move around a lot. The best aspect of the bag for me personally is the self sealing foot vent. I get hot feet so restrictive mummy bags are often uncomfortable due to feet that are overheating. On the Cloud you can easily slide your feet out of the vent on the bottom to cool off or just let air in. Due to the placement of the vent and the overlapping materials, as soon as your feet are inside there no chance of cold air getting in or your feet accidentally getting out. An ingenious design feature.
This version has 1134g of SierraLoft Eco Synthetic Insulation that has a -5°C Comfort Limit so its good for two to three season use, particularly if you're a warm sleeper. The fabrics used are 20D so they are lightweight but also more durable than many of the lightest bags out there. The dimensions of the bag are generous so it would suit someone after a larger bag, someone who moves around a lot at night and warm sleepers. The overall weight is really impressive given all the features too.
