Worked for me
I chose this because I'm a big guy (6'1, 260 lbs) and like to be warm AND have room and some of the mummy bags are too tight for me. I used it this past weekend camping at Assateague. It was about 42 degrees, I had on a thin long-sleeved shirt, and was toasty all night. Plus, I sleep on my side and this bag has room for me to turn inside of the bag, without turning the entire bag. I also like that my pad (Exped SynMat 7) fit in the bottom of the bag perfectly. The pillow fitting where I could stuff my clothes in to make a pillow and save weight in my pack is a good feature. This bag doesn't cover your head like other bags, so you need a hat on the cold nights. For the price, I don't mind wearing a hat.
I'm a big tall guy. I had a mummy bag, but it restricted movement. I like having room to move my feet and arms. This bag gives plenty of room without losing heat. I rolled out the bag for the first time, got in, and immediately felt it warm up. A little thin for cold weather, but this will serve as a great outer if I ever need to double. The sack is comfortable without a pad, but if you like to not feel like you're sleeping on the ground, the pads are a great addition. The memory foam pillow is great as well. The bag rolls up and packs in a sack about 1/4 the size of the box it came in. Very light weight and perfect for backpacking.
Great Bag for Those Who Like Room
Another big guy who backpacks but just can't do a mummy bag. This bag is able to fit inside my backpack, although it does take up a good bit of room.
I like that it is only insulated on one side. Allows me to have the non-insulated side up when it's a little warmer, then turn it over as the night gets colder.
Although the sleeve for the sleeping pad sounds like a good idea, I don't use it. Doing so prevents the bag from cinching up tight around your neck on cold nights.
Overall, this is an excellent compromise between space and weight.
What's not to like?
Two features attracted me to this bag. One was the estimated comfort range, the second was the dimentions. It doesn't get so cold in in Alabama that (to me) a "summer" bag would be fine by itself most of the time and require no more than a fleece liner on the cold nights. And, being a big guy and a "side sleeper", every spare inch is important. This bag fits the bill nicely. The fact that the mattress sleeve fits my air mat perfectly is an additional bonus.
great bag plenty of room
this was a great buy for me cause i am a bigger guy but i love camping and hiking and all the other light weight bags are just to cramped for me i stay warm in it and the sleeping pad sleeve is amazing you dont roll of your pad i have slept in it with out the pad and am still plenty warm great bag
Great for the big guy
Great combo of weight and size for big guys like me (6'1" 280). I had the Lumen and it was way to small like I was shrink wrapped and I couldn't get out. This bag has the room and packs small for your adventures.
This bag is officially my favorite for the money, Big Agnes did a great job with the design. I no longer slide off of my pad because your pad is incorporated right into the bag.
A Big guys friend
At 6'4" 260 pounds most bags leave me feeling strapped in. Not the buffalo park. I have plenty of room to roll around even with big Agnes's thickest air mattress.
