Big Agnes Fish Hawk Sleeping Bag: 30 Degree Down


Product Details

Sleep easy when you visit wild and rugged places with the Big Agnes Fish Hawk 30 Degree Down Sleeping Bag. At first glance you'll see the Fish Hawk isn't your standard sleeping bag. In what Big Agnes is calling its Contour shape, the bag is slightly roomier across the shoulders, allowing you to easily roll over or sleep on your side. Where the Fish Hawk really shines, though, is with its hydrophobic DownTek insulation. This technology marries the benefit of down with the dependability of synthetic insulation. The treated down fibers will resist moisture so the bag will maintain its insulating properties even when wet. On top of that, the outer fabric is treated with a water-resistant finish to further protect against water. In addition to its roomy Contour shape, the Fish Hawk also totes several other features to make your backcountry sleeping experience that much more comfortable. The back of the bag is fitted with a full-length pad sleeve, which allows you to secure the bag to your sleeping pad. This means no more waking up with your sleeping pad at arms length while you're snuggled up against the cold ground. A soft and breathable polyester lining helps keep your temperature regulated, while a draft collar and tube prevent warm air from escaping throughout the night. The Fish Hawk comes with a nylon stuff sack and a mesh storage sack, so you can keep that down lofty between backpacking trips.

Lightweight Sleeping Bags Checklist

Sure It's Warm Enough? Lightweight bags are meant for use in weather between 30-50 degrees. But, remember, it's always prudent to add on at least 10 degrees to the bags rating. Thus, a bag rated to 40 degrees might only keep you warm in 50 degree weather.
Down or Synthetic? Each have their advantages. Down is less bulky and weighs a few ounces less. Synthetic costs less (usually) and is easier to dry - you can just toss it in the dryer.
Don't Forget the Sleeping Pad! A sleeping bag is useless without a sleeping pad. So, if you don't already have a sleeping pad, get one. For lightweight sleeping bags (thus used in warm weather), you don't need a super thick or winter-style one.
Ideal Uses for a Lightweight Bag. Where you know...for sure...that the temperature will stay at least 10-15 degrees above the sleeping bags rating. And, where every ounce and cubic inch of space is at a premium. Lightweight bags are often used by climbers and bike campers/travelers. For backpacking in the mountains, a lightweight bag is NOT recommended!
