Description

Whether your camping trip takes you to slot canyons or alpine lakes, you need the Big Agnes Farwell Sleeping Bag to keep you cozy.

From Utah's San Rafael Swell in January to Colorado's Mount Evans region in July, the Big Agnes Farwell Sleeping Bag helps you stay warm at night. The synthetic Farwell 0-degree bag excels in cold-weather and summer alpine conditions. Unlike down, synthetic insulation continues to retain your body heat, even if you wake up with frost on your bag or you pitch your tent during a monsoonal downpour. Big Agnes gave this bag plenty of foot room and included a pillow pocket for comfy ZZZs. A sleeve on the backside of this sleeping bag holds your Big Agnes rectangular sleeping pad (sold separately). Rolling off your pad and waking up on cold, hard ground will be a thing of the past.

Much Bigger in the Stuff Sack

8x12 in the stuff sack is a joke. This bag is 10x20 in the stuff sack that it comes with. It's huge. There does seem to be some compression left, but you'll need to get a new stuff sack, and I doubt it ever gets close to 8x12. Have not checked the weight yet, but i'm not holding my breath given the experience with the dimensions...

It is nice a roomy, and I like the "pillow pocket," but the stuff size is a deal killer for me.

Responded on

the 2 stuff sacks work fine for me...the smaller is for your pack and the larger is more for storing if you dont have room to lay it out flat or hang it in your closet. I try not to compress the fibers unless its in my pack, I lay mine flat under the bed in between uses.

Responded on

also synthetic never compresses as well as down. you should get a down bag if compression is an issue...

My self inflating Thermalite pad is 26" wide. Is there room to stuff it in the sleeve?

Responded on

I would think not. I find the 20" fits perfectly, edge to edge. To try to squeeze another 6 inches in there, would probably force the bag to not sit properly on the pad, allowing cold spots. This bag has no insulation on the bottom, at all. It was designed to use a 20" pad

Best bag to date

Just purchased this new after using a Cabela's Summit bag for years. The Big Agnes is a much better sleeping bag - lighter, with more room, and just as warm. I wondered about the bottom having no fill, but with the sleeping pad (you must have one) it worked perfectly. The pad stayed in place, no sliding off, and I was warm the entire night. I am a new fan of the Big Agnes products.

Great bag

I had this bag with the matching rectangular pad. It lives up to any expectations. Lots of room to move, without you moving off the pad and onto the tent floor.
My last trip with it was a late fall Canadian forest week long trip. The temps ranged from 20 c to -1 c, and I was just as comfortable in this bag as I would have been at home.

I have since had this bag on warmer trips and much colder ones. I have to say, even on 20+c humid nights, it kept me quite comfortable

UPDATE... I got to try it out Winter Camping in about 8 f or -13 c. Held up as well as could be expected. I woke up fairly warm, but being laid out on an incline, led me to have my feet pushing against the sides and bottom, so my feet were cold.

You'll love it!

This bag with the giant memory foam pad and insulated air core (both Big Agnes) is the ultimate of sleeping systems! Most certainly not your ultralight backpacking gear, the bag does compress. I am mostly using it with my son's boy scout troop which does camp in tents even in January. (Washington State) It is warm. I love the pillow pocket and the draft collar. I am too claustrophobic for traditional mummy bags so this is a great solution for me. You definitely need a good pad because this bag is designed with the pocket in the back for the pad to slip into. Without a pad, you'll basically be on the ground. But no more slipping and sliding off your sleeping pad!!

Product description is dead accurate

When matched with the right BA pad, you can take this down pretty low. Big pluses for convenience of the pillow pocket, and the comfort of the draft collar. As mentioned in other reviews below, you have to be careful which pad you pair with this, as it's thin on the bottom, intended to be complemented by the pad.

Can you use a Big Agnes Air Core Sleeping Pad with this sleeping bag? Or can a BA two track pad - mummy pad be used? Or will affect the temp rating? I am looking for the smallest and lightest pad to use without affecting the temp rating

Responded on

this bag is designed for a 20" wide rectangular pad. at this temp rating you need the insulated air core, not the regular air core, but even then the insulated air core is only rated to 15 degrees. you need to match the temp rating of the pad to the bag to get the most out of the system which leaves the two track pad if you're not willing to use the insulated air core on top of a foam pad as many people do...
if you're truly concerned about weight, you should consider a down bag in your temp rating. cheers http://www.bigagnes.com/Products/Detail/Bag/Farwell

Great bag

I used this bag this fall on the North rim of the Grand Canyon. Great fit, lots of room in the bottom for your legs and feet. The sleeping pad slide in feature is great, no more rolling off of your pad, or having your bag role up when you move. Bag was not quite as warm as other 0 degree bags that I have used but I think this is due to the extra room in the foot box, not a bad trade off.

Will the Exped Downmat 7 Sleeping Pad fit this bag?

Best Answer Responded on

Hi John,

It will indeed. It will be a bit short, so beware there might be a small gap between bag and pad, and with BA bags, there will be no insulation on the underside.

Try stuffing some socks/extra shirt into the gap, and that should help with any problem.

Hope this helps!

Roomy comfort, but cold wind could be an issue

But zero degrees is pushing it. I've spent several sub 20F nights in it and been comfy. Then there was a night at 10k in January where the wind HOWLED and even behind a burly tent wall and a snow barrier outside there was enough air moving around to chill me out pretty good. I don't blame the sleeping pad sleeve as much as the draft collar and tube.

I do like the fit of the BA bags in general. I'm 6'5", 230 lbs, and don't prefer to sleep on my back. Even with the bag loaded up with clothes, water bottles, and ski boot liners, there's still plenty of room to move.

I'm considering upgrading to one of their down bags for more compressibility. This one does take up a lot of room in the pack! Overall I'm very satisfied. It's a lot of warmth for the price.

be careful of which pad you match with it.

This is a 0 degree bag, and as such requires a sleeping pad that can also do it's job in below freezing temps. I paired this with an exped 7 and was disappointed with the outcome (I love the pad, BTW). the exped is about 2.75" thick, and having a pad that thick in the sleeve pulled the top of the bag tighter around me, felt like I was sleeping on a skinny bed with the sheets tucked in real tight all around me. I still had good foot room to move them side to side, but the bag was pulling down on my toes. same thing around my torso -- room for my elbows, but pulled tight on my chest. I then tried just putting the pad underneath the bag, but it just doesn't work that way -- you only get complete coverage from the insulated portion of the bag if the pad is in the sleeve. Simply placing the bag on top of the pad leaves "dead zones" where you have no insulation between you and the open air (the bag is well designed where if the pad is in the sleeve, this doesn't happen). It would probably work better with a thinner 4 season pad, like the thermarest prolite 4, or the pac outdoor all out aero mt., but then those aren't thick enough for me to sleep on my side and keep my shoulders/hips off the ground that well(I weigh about 200).
Also, no pocket for a watch or whatever. The draft collar doesn't cinch up like some other cold weather bags, but it is a little heavier so the weight keeps it on your body.
I tested this bag vs. the mountain hardwear switch 5, and I'm going with the switch 5 -- with the expander unzipped it has equal shoulder room, and even though it is more narrow in the feet, I felt like I had more room because it wasn't pulled tight by the pad.

Responded on

Its designed to fit with Big Agnes pads (ie. insulated air core). It will "work" with other brands of pads, but you can't knock it not being perfect with Thermarest or Exped, when BA has their own line of solid air core pads. Paired with one of those and this bag works great.

Responded on

Well Ace, I disagree. A 20x72x3 retangular pad is the exact same dimensions no matter who makes it. BA says it's bags are made to pair with BA pads because they want you to buy more BA stuff. You apparently like the integrated pad system, more power to you, but it's not for everyone.

Responded on

I completely agree, I have the BA pad matched to this one, and it makes all the difference in the world

I'm 6' and have tried stuffing myself in a regulars, rated for a max height at 6', and I felt like a sardine in them. My suggestion is google big and tall sleeping bags and see what you can find.

Best Answer Responded on

You should be able to do that. The only issue is going to be the difference in length but other than that it will work just fine.

Awesome

This is the best bag I've ever had. I've been hiking/camping since I was a wee lad and have used every kind of bag from the square flannel style to super fluffy down and this one by far is the most comfortable, warmest I've used. I'm a fairly large fellow and have always had an issue with either my shoulders sticking out or feeling cramped and claustrophobic. I can get my entire body almost including my head inside and I still have room to kick my feet around. I haven't gotten it down to 0 degrees yet but have gotten it down to about 35 and had to acutally unzip it a little to cool off at one point. I absolutely love the pocket for the sleep pad. I was a little unsure about this feature at first but don't ever want to worry about rolling off my pad again. There is plenty of room in the pocket for two pads as well which is good since this is required for cold weather camping. The only thing I wish this bag had was a little storage pocket for a flashlight, ect..
Overall I think it is a fantastic bag and would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a new sleeping bag.
