Forte Sleeping Bag

Nemo Equipment


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.
