Nordisk Nunaat HP 2011

The Nordisk Nunaat HP is a well-shaped sleeping bag, offering a body-hugging mummy design, which tapers to a trapezoid shape at the feet. It also comes in five different lengths, so you can get one that fits you perfectly. The Northguard Extreme insulation felt very warm very quickly, so this is one of the better bags for cold nights. It felt about right for its -6 deg C temperature comfort limit. You also get a full-length, two-way zip that doesn’t snag, plus an excellent baffle to eliminate cold spots. The hood also fits very snugly with the right amount of material and no bunching. But the lack of shoulder baffle means it’s harder to pull the Nordisk Nunaat HP close to your body and eliminate the movement of air around the bag at night. As a result, it loses some of its warmth potential.

The Nordisk Nunaat HP is a very good, well-shaped bag that will be perfect for 3-season UK use. The addition of a shoulder baffle would make it one of the best here, unless you don’t like them.
