Like your own bed in the backcountry! Our Doublewide Series eliminates the need to zip two bags together so there's nothing keeping you apart from your cuddle bug in your tent, van, or wherever you need a super comfy bed. The much improved Sentinel 30 is insulated with 650 fill DownTek ; a water-repellent down insulation that repels water while maintaining insulating properties and loft for a cozy, warm sleep experience. The Flex Pad Sleeve on the bottom makes connecting two pads or stretching around a doublewide pad easier and fast than ever while still allowing the quilted soft polyester shell fabric on top and cozy polyester taffeta lining inside to drape like the comforter on your bed. So snuggle in for the night, this might be your best night's rest under the stars.
I have this for me and my girlfriend. The best thing about it is its sleeve, so we have 2 thick pads(r value 3) that we can put together in the sleeve and everything stays in place. We have camped a few times in a few degrees celcius and had long underware and a sweater. Thats the limit for us wouldn't go colder without something extra. I just hope they improve it with loftier down and lighter materials in the future. Otherwise i love it, with the pads its like a Queen sized bed in the Wild.
Holy cow: I love this bag! I initially purchased this bag so my partner and I could camp together comfortably, but life happens and I ended up solo. I love this bag as a traveling bed set-up so I know I'll be comfortable wherever I go. I bring this to my parents and set it up in there living room with my dog! I've also set this up in the back of my Honda Element on a camp platform. If you are planning on using this solo/or with your best dog pal keep in mind that the temp rating is meant for two people in the bag. I definitely can't make it to the 30 F temp rating on my own in this bag, but I use it for car camping and I just brink an extra snuggly blanket!
The good: This bag looks and feels fantastic. It is clearly very well made from fine materials, and my partner and I found it more than sufficiently roomy.
The bad: It's just not that warm. We used this bag at the height of summer, at sea level in Northern California. Overnight temperatures probably didn't dip below 50 degrees, and we were cold. The biggest issue, I think, is that this bag has no insulation of any kind on its bottom (that is to say its bed, under your body). It's just a single layer of polyester. This is presumably done to reduce weight and bulk, but the result is that you're entirely at the mercy of your sleeping pad for warmth. (Ours is a Big Agnes Air Core.) In a sense, this renders the quality of the down insulation used elsewhere in bag sort of irrelevant. I'm used to sleeping bags that capture body heat and distribute it, warming up in the course of the night. That never really happens with this one. We'll probably keep using it, because we like cocooning overnight, but we've got some regrets and can't really recommend it given the other choices out there.
The double sleeping bag packs down nice, light weight and allows for more room and cuddles. Bag is warm and has so many great features to it. When my wife takes the kids by herself, they can all fit in this bag and only have to pack one system to sleep in!
The only down fall is that I order the Insulated Air core ultra double pad and put it together and the pads pulls like a taco since it's to big. Upon further inspection we should of ordered the AXL air pad in the 40" width, the only pad that is 40" wide to fit this bag. I assumed it would fit any big agnes double wide pad, but I should or read the fine print a bit more.
