This was one of the first bags I looked at when I started hunting for some backpacking gear. I did a ton of research and this one still came out to be the best for my budget. I paired this with the Therma-Rest Trail Pro pad and stayed very warm in 40 degrees with the bag zipped up about 3/4 of the way. I haven't gotten to use it in colder temperatures yet, but I have no doubts about trying it out this winter. With the built in pad sleeve and pillow slot I felt like a toasty lil cinnamon bun. The material seems very durable and is plush and comfy. I am 5'8" 150 lbs and I had plenty of room to toss and turn, which is what I was looking for without adding too much weight. Overall- warm, comfy, and a good price for a bag!
I was looking for a bag that would keep me nice and warm on the cool nights up on the mountain. The only problem I have with mummy bags, is that they are too restrictive for me, I need to be able to move my legs around a bit. That's where this bag shines! It gives the benefits of a mummy bag with a bit more room in the legs! It was a great happy medium for me and I'm happy with the bag. You will want a good quality pad for this bag, its a must as part of the system. I love this bag and would buy another.....then zip them together so my wife can join me!
I bought this sleeping bag for my fiance and she absolutely loves it! She is 5'10" and the regular fits her great. She absolutely loves the pocket on the bottom of the bag for the sleeping pad, she will never fall off her pad in the middle of the night. She has used it in a variety of temperatures, from upper 30's to high 70's and she is always comfortable. It's a great intro to mid range backpacking sleeping bag. The original stuff sack was a bit large but once inside a compression sack it makes it a breeze to pack. I would recommend this bag to anyone who is looking for a great starting backpacking sleeping bag.
"Mad Comfortable. Even for the larger person."
I am a big dude. With an upcoming 7 day trek into the Grand Canyon, I was worried that I was going to have to be stuck with either a bulky bag, or a mummy that was a second skin. Once this one was zipped up to the top, I was hooked. It just felt great. It has a sleeve in the bottom that will fit most sleeping pads, and a pillow pocket to prevent the ever wandering pillow. If you love the idea of having a super comfy sleep in the middle of the dessert, or at the bottom of canyon, then this is the bag for you. I would also recommend the Big Agnes Wedgie. It's a zipper extension for even more room!
This sleeping bag is perfect for spring and fall camping! It will keep you cozy and warm on chilly nights and has a number of innovative features designed for comfort (bottom pouch is made to accommodate a sleeping pad (highly recommend the Big Agnes insulated air core), plus a BA air or memory foam pillow works perfectly with the pillow pocket built into the hood) and durability (water-repellent, ripstop outer shell). In addition, the eco-friendly fill (made from 97% recycled materials) will make you feel even better about your purchase.
Got this bag for Christmas last year and it does a great job. I bought it along with the Big Agnes dual core sleeping pad and they are a great combination. I have plenty of room to roll over, sleep on my side, etc. The pad and bag are very warm together as well. I've only been down to about 30 degrees - but I was toasty. I'd recommend the bag without reservation.
"Used it for 5 years as a wildland firefighter on continental divide. Economical & Hardy!"
Spent 5 yrs as a firefighter in Colorado spending many nights coyote'n out under the stars. Bag handled the wet mornings and early packings without me having to give much care to it. It packs nicely, using a stuff sack I got it down to about a 10" ball. It isn't the lightest on the market but I never noticed the few oz. difference. I'm a big guy 6'7", ~ 275 lbs., so I did have to purchase the long bag and the "wedge" so that I plenty of room.If it wasn't for my puppy chewing up the zipper I would still be using the original bag. Definitely getting a second one for the money, the build & comfort don't get better!
I bought this sleeping bag for my girlfriend. she is 5'4" and the regular seemed to fit her really well. We haven't really tested the temps yet, but it seems really warm and I am looking to do some winter camping with her
After several hours of researching bags I decided to make the purchase. I am a large human at 6'5" and 240 lbs. I have never slept so well in a sleeping bag as I have in this Big Agnes! The engineering is like no other with the ability to slide the sleeping pad inside the bag. If I buy another bag I will surely buy Big Agnes!!! YOU WILL NOT BE DISAPPOINTED!!!
I found this sleeping bag / pad combo to be the perfect solution to my hammock tenting woes. With this setup where the sleeping pad is part of the bag, you never have to worry about the pad slipping out from underneath. The bag is plenty wide so that you can turn over in it and not twist the bag along with you. I only tested this one night which was in the 40’s, so can’t really attest to the temp rating. I would highly recommend this along with the Big Agnes air core pad for any hammock-tenter out there. The rectangular pad fits in here just fine, even though it's a mummy bag.
I have used this bag both on hiking and truck camping trips and have to say this is my favorite bag. I often use this bag in my hammock and never feel confined to moving due to the roomy interior and nylon material. Because of the large size the bag is not a ultra small pack size, so plan on making some room for it in your pack. Also, I have tried several pads but like my Big Angus Insulated Air Core pad the best. I have used bag down into the 30's and stayed warm as long as you have a insulated one.
Mummy bags have always been a pain in my butt...but this thing is awesome! Plenty of room, synthetic fill insulates beautifully and my favorite part...the pad sleeve. No more sliding off your pad at night. Partnered with the thermarest pro lite plus...best nights sleep outdoors ever. Great product and reasonably priced.
