In the past, drafty cabins and frosty tents may have kept you from a good winter night's sleep, but now that you have the Big Agnes Farwell 0-Degree Synthetic Sleeping Bag to burrow inside, you snore the nights away (your travel partners would prefer that you shivered). Stuffed full of Integrity synthetic insulation like a turkey's stuffed full of, well, stuffing, the Farwell will keep you warm all the way down to zero degrees, making it a top option for icy winter hut trips and camping expeditions where going superlight isn't necessary. Synthetic doesn't pack quite as well as down, but it compensates by retaining its warmth even if it gets wet and staying well-lofted, so you don't have to worry about condensation turning your bag into a popsicle. To reduce weight as much as possible, the Farwell forgoes insulation on the bottom of the bag, opting instead for an integrated sleeve that uses a sleeping pad as insulation, letting the bag pack down smaller than it otherwise would while the pad keeps you warmer than traditional insulation, which would only compress under your weight. The Farwell also has winter-defeating features like a no-draft collar, zipper, and wedge, a pillow pocket, and comfortable nylon taffeta lining that will keep you deeply asleep, even if your tentmates start bashing you with shoes and headlamps to stop the racket. - Backcountry.com
