Big Agnes Storm King Sleeping Bag: 0 Degree Down


Product Details

As far as sleeping bags go, 3. 9 pounds is pretty light, especially when you're talking about a bag that will keep you warm in the dead of winter. On top of all the warmth, the Big Agnes Storm King 0-degree Sleeping Bag has a roomy rectangular design and can even be zipped together with another rectangular Big Agnes bag. The main reason for such a light weight is the fact that Big Agnes eliminated unnecessary insulation from the bottom of the bag. When you're sleeping on top of insulation, it doesn't keep you warm because it has no loft and therefore no air (or heat) is trapped inside. Instead, Big Agnes put a Sleeping Pad sleeve in its place, so you have the trapped air in the sleeping pad keeping you warm, and at the same time your pad stays underneath you. On to top of that, Big Agnes went with a hydrophobic down fill, so the Storm King will maintain insulating properties if it should happen to get wet.

Winter Sleeping Bags Checklist

Insulation Type? For winter camping, nothing is better than high-quality goose down. It's warmer and less bulky. Yes, synthetic bags are ok (and less expensive), but for wintner camping...goose down rules.
Temperature Rating? Get a bag rated to -40 degrees. Remember, just because a bag is rated to -40, doesn't mean it will keep you warm at that temperature. Always be safe and "add 10 to 20" degrees onto the temperature rating of a sleeping bag.
Don't Forget the Sleeping Pad! A winter sleeping bag is useless without a thick sleeping pad. So, if you don't already have a sleeping pad designed for winter, be sure to get one. Remember, sleeping pads are designed for BOTH warmth and comfort!
Don't Jerry-Rig a Three Season Bag for Winter Use. It's not really possible to "jerry rig" a three season bag to make it suitable for winter use. Many good three-season bags keep you warmer when you sleep without clothing. About the best you can do to "winterize" a three-season bag is to insert a sleeping bag liner. But it's still a sorry substitute for a quality four-season bag.
