2020 NEMO Spoon™ Shape Bag Series: Updates, Improvements, and New Additions

All of us at NEMO are really proud to introduce our updated 2020 Spoon™ Shape sleeping bag series for men and women. We’ve designed three specific tailorings for each adventure type — Athletic, Classic, and Relaxed — each with its own set of unique curves. Combining unprecedented loft and warmth retention, the plushest fabrics, and premium insulations like RDS Certified down and cutting-edge Primaloft® RISE, we’ve designed our best Spoon™ Shape bag collection yet.

Beyond the added comfort of extra width at the shoulders and knees throughout the series, the collection’s newly refined curves offer a range of options — from shaving critical ounces for long hours on the trail to the most relaxed fitting, side-sleeper comfort for camping with the family — while all models increase space-saving packability.

Here are the improvements and changes you need to know:

FORTE™

CLASSIC SPOON™ Shape, SYNTHETIC Insulation

Added Features:
  • Our refined Classic Spoon™ shape adds room at the elbows and knees, yet is tailored for weight shaving warmth.
  • Synthetic just got better. Updated with Primaloft® RISE insulation, featuring 80% post-consumer recycled content, and engineered to deliver maximum warmth retention and water resistance with less weight than conventional synthetic insulation. RISE insulation mimics down in loft, weight, pack size, and temperature — while still reaping the quick-drying benefits of synthetic insulation. Thanks to this new insulation, we were able to cut the weight and compressed volume of our new Forte™ series over our previous model.
