The Company

The first thing that strikes you when you visit Big Agnes, is the fact that the owners of this company don't just make a product that they know will sell.

Since they actually partake in activities for which their products are designed this makes them something of first hand experts. If the product isn't something they would use, they simply don't make it. This certainly gives those who are new to their products a bit of confidence in those initial purchases.

The company has won a lot of awards for their gear over the years so it is not at all surprising that Big Agnes sleeping bags should be a little different than the bags that most people are used to.

The Design

Unique Design Offers Comfort Beyond Measure

The unique design of these bags make them a little different. However, once you understand just what this difference is, you can easily see that the design of them makes for a most comfortable nights sleep whether you are camping in the rocky mountains or your own back yard.

These are not insulated on the bottom. Instead they are designed to slide your sleeping pad inside a sleeve. This not only provides a lighter weight sleeping bag for all you hikers to lug around but also allows for those who toss and turn to wake up on top of instead of beside their sleeping mat.

The top 2/3 is insulated to give you warmth and depending on which one you choose it can keep you warm in cold temperatures.

This unique design not only reduces the weight , but also reduces the bulk, making for a small pack size when carrying and storing the bag.

Note: We rate the double sleeping bags made by Big Agnes very high in comparison to other brands based on price and quality.

Warranty

Big Agnes offer a life time limited guarantee which is encouraging although a buyer needs to look at these terms and conditions in order to make sure an issue is not excluded, nevertheless, its better than what most companies offer.

Warranty: Lifetime check with BA

A Word of Advice

Temperature ratings: Over a period of time and after reviewing several Big Agnes sleeping bags we have found some users having a problem keeping warm down to the advertised temperature rating. It may be wise to keep this in mind and purchase a model with a lower temp rating than needed.

Sleeping pads: Agnes offers its own sleeping pads that can be bought separately that are designed for their sleeping bags with a sleeve. The Air Core inflatable pad is a good example. However, other pads do fit if the correct size is bought, paying particular attention to the width.
