Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $200+ pad
This bag is made for WOMEN! I love this bag so much that I bought a second one for my partner. The air cord pad and the comfort of this bag are great for those of us over 50. The extra room in the hip area is great, I never feel tight in this bag and have not been cold, even as the temps dip down to the 20s.
- Made for women
- Thermarest pads do not work in this bag, buy the Big Anges pad for best results
I stumbled across this bag at REI a few summers ago. It was replacing a 20-year-old mummy down bag. We tried it out in the store and i have to say the few extra inches in the "girth" area was nice.
I bought it and used it with my Therm-a-rest pad. Not so good. Take the plunge, buy the Big Agnes Air Core pads—they fit perfectly and add that layer to keep you off the ground and to keep the cold away.
This is a warm, comfortable bag that I have not been cold in, camping in the spring in Northern MN. I loved this so much that my partner upgraded her bag to this, after a week of trying out mine!
Why more places do not carry this line, is a mystery. I ordered one bag directly from Big Agnes and received outstanding customer service.
If you are a woman who loves to sleep well in the woods this is a bag for you! The little pocket inside is perfect to stuff a fleece inside for a pillow too!
