Light for backpacking, comfy for camping, protective for anything.

Big Agnes designed the Women's Ethel Sleeping Bag for campers and backpackers who aren't willing to compromise comfort or performance. Its DownTek water-repellent treatment helps the light and lofty down insulation retain its warmth in wet weather. Insotect Flow construction offers a revolutionary baffle design that mixes vertical chambers with Flow Gates to minimize shifting and deliver uniform heat distribution for near subzero temperatures.

A contoured design places the Ethel Sleeping Bag somewhere between a packable mummy and a roomy rectangular. Big Agnes treated the ripstop shell for water-resistance and the soft lining with stain-resistance for extra protection. There are also draft protectors at the collar, wedge, and down the full-length zipper. An integrated pad sleeve requires you to pair the Ethel with an accommodating sleeping pad for insulation at the bag's bottom.

Unanswered Question

Anyone have a guess at how this bag (or other Big Agnes bag+pad systems) would work on a paco pad for a river trip? I have an Aire landing pad that is way to big to fit the sleeping pad sleeve, and I'm worried there would be an insufferable draft on the bottom of the bag. I'm considering taking Ethel on the Grand Canyon... in January.

Is this bag "comfort rated" to 0F degrees?

Hey Jentree,

This bag is not EN rated, so the 0F is not a comfort rating. It is more of a suggested temp rating by Big Agnes.

Hi. Is this the updated 2015 version? Thanks!

What pad sizes work with this sleeping bag?

Pad sizes that work with each sleeping bag size:

Petite (Sleeping Bag): 20"x66" or 51cm x 168cm

Regular (Sleeping Bag): 20"x72" or 51cm x 183cm
