User Review: Big Agnes Encampment 15°
Design: semi mummy
Temperature Rating: 15
this bag has served me well for 5 years. it is always good enough to get me to the end of the trip, but rarely feeling happy about every aspect of the bag.
the biggest plus is the room, i get a little claustrophobic in tight bags. and if you get a warm pad it's not that cold. if you try to get by with a super light pad in colder weather you had better sleep very warm. in snow i like to use 1 close celled pad on the ground plus a warm pad in the bag.
i complain about this bag every time i take it out, but i keep going back to it for its size, and the fact that it's still warm in the damp cascades with the right pad selections. i also use this bag in the oregon high desert from april to early nov. it's got to be the most versatile bag i have ever had and if i had not seen some of the high end offerings from feathered friends and western mountaineering i might have given this bag a 4.
good times to you out there, and if you are in damp cold (over 15 at night) conditions for more than 1 night you might want to try it. it's not that bad. and a plus if you have broad shoulders, or thick legs.
