Down that's not afraid of water.
The Big Agnes Women's Roxy Ann 15 Sleeping Bag mixes lightweight loft with weather-resistant capability for camping or backpacking in nasty conditions. DownTek treats the lofty down insulation with water-resistant protection to help it retain its loft and warmth in rainy weather and moisture-riddled environments. Insotect Flow Construction optimizes insulation by strategically placing vertical chambers with Flow Gates to minimize shifting and to ensure warmth where you need it most.
For a roomy, rectangular-shaped bag, the Roxy Ann is surprisingly light and compressible for backpacking trips. Big Agnes also equipped this bag with a draft tube around the hood and a full-length zipper to keep brisk air at bay. Internal loops let you attach separate liners for extra comfort, and there are pockets for pillows and car keys. Since Big Agnes doesn't insulate the bottom of bags, be sure to pair this sleeping bag with a 20in sleeping pad.

- Q & A
- Familiarity: I returned this product before using it
unfortunately I received a damaged sleeping bag. The seam was ripped in two different locations and I had downs flying all over. I have to return it and am waiting for the replacement which I hope will be of better quality.
Women's Classic Series Down System Bags
Big Agnes Women’s Classic bags are designed to feel more like the comforter on your own bed. They provide an overall more comfortable and cozier sleeping experience than ever before with a semi-rectangle shape and Insotect Flow™ construction that keeps the insulation next to your body for more efficient heat distribution. The new polyester mini rip-stop microfiber shell fabric is softer than ever with a water repellent finish. These bags are taller across the top so you can roll over more freely while the Free Range hood allows you to move unrestricted while staying hooded. They’re so comfortable, you won’t want to go home. (note: prior year colors shown in video, otherwise, all features are current)
Big Agnes System
The Big Agnes System is flawless.
Light, 3 season bag
- Familiarity: I've used it several times
The sleeping system is rad. It's nice to not roll off your pad. You can also join your two bags together, and not have to get a double wide pad, because the single pads stay in place.
Zipping bags together is quite nice and a lot warmer, especially when you sleeping in below freezing temps. So, I strongly recommend getting opposing zippers on your bags, so you can do this. Also, with Big Anges' sleeping system, your pads stay put, so you aren't rolling off them all night.
This isn't a super warm bag, thus the 4 stars. It's comfortable closer to 35+. But, I have discovered that the slightest covering over the top of the bag, will increase the warmth significantly. So, I recommend getting a sleeping bag liner and putting it over the bag and pad, to trap the heat. Or, taking a light blanket or even your backpacking towel, and draping it over the bag. This will increase the comfort rating dramatically.
Everything else I like about this bag. It's light and durable, even against my dogs claws. I just wish the temp rating wasn't 20 degrees off.
I do want to mention that it's crucial to fluff your down bag, before you use it for the first time. The down settles, and gets smashed while it's on the shelf, leaving dead spots that get cold. Put it in the dryer with tennis balls for a full cycle and you'll be set!
