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.

Nemo says: 

We took our beloved 3-season synthetic bag for the backcountry and made it 100% recyclable to kick off NEMO’s new endlessly usable Endless Promise™ collection. Designed using just a single material family, Forte is now officially a standout in sustainability as well as comfort and performance.

The bag’s Classic Spoon™ shape continues to be a game changer for side sleepers, offering more room at the knees and shoulders for a less-constricted feel. Its upgraded Thermo Gill™ vents feature a new multistage zipper system that dramatically increases the usable temperature range of the bag and allows for fine-tuning of comfort from within. And the suite of recycled fabrics and material ensures an unbelievably blissful night’s sleep wherever you roam.

Endless Promise is NEMO’s commitment to reduce resource consumption, keep gear out of the landfill, and help preserve our planet for future adventures. All EP products are painstakingly designed to be mono-polymer in order to be easily, fully recyclable. In addition to the bluesign® approved shell and recycled liner, Forte is filled with 100% post-consumer recycled Zerofiber™ PCR synthetic insulation. This fill packs down small, maintains its loft, and provides warmth even when wet.

Finally, cozy details like the Blanket Fold™ draft collar and integrated pillow pocket pair with the buttery-soft fabrics to keep comfort at the forefront. You might even say that comfort is this bag’s... forte.

Our Verdict

The highly successful Nemo Forte 20 Sleeping Bag has been updated for 2023 with new insulation and fabrics. It retains the comfortable 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 Zerofiber insulation. Less insulation is used in this updated version, but it retains the same -7°C Comfort Limit. The inner and outer fabrics have also changed to reduce the overall weight without sacrificing warmth or durability.

Nemo has kept the innovative Thermo Gills shown by the two slits down the centre 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 well, especially in changeable conditions.

Another feature 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 can still zip together with the men's bags if that is something you want in your bag.
