Kiss cold nights goodbye.
Whether you're sleeping in the back of your truck in a snowy parking lot to get the jump on first chair or winter camping somewhere in the North Cascades, the Big Agnes Farwell 0 Degree Synthetic Sleeping Bag has the right stuff to keep you warm all night long. That stuff is eco-friendly Hotstream synthetic insulation, which will retain insulating properties if the bag should happen to get a little wet, and ripstop fabric that's treated with a DWR finish for added protection against light moisture condensation.
Big Agnes built the Farwell with a fairly roomy shape and built it with its A-Flex construction, which allows the baffles to drape around your body for more efficient insulation. Staying insulated from the cold ground can be the difference between a warm and comfortable night's sleep and a miserable one, so Big Agnes added a full-length sleeping pad sleeve, which will accept any 20-inch wide sleeping pad, so you won't have to worry about rolling off your pad halfway through the night and waking up on a freezing tent floor or icy truck bed.

- Q & A
Solid bag, but flawed design
I have mixed feelings on this bag. It's comfy, pretty good insulation (down to 20 or 30 degrees for me), packs down small, and good price. However, the new Big Agnes sleeping bag design is flawed in my opinion. For those of you who aren't familiar, there is zero padding on one side where the pad slips in and serves as insulation. This has a couple issues. First, for cold weather camping (0particularly noticed it when I went snow camping) cold air can seep in the gap between pad and bag. But the even bigger issue is if your pad gets a hole. This is an issue no matter what, but with this bag, you are sleeping right on the ground. No Bueno.
