Twelve new sleeping bags will be added to the spring 2017 lineup, including custom fit, zipperless and ultralight styles available in bright colorways and patterns


STEAMBOAT SPRINGS, Colo. (July 28, 2016)
Big Agnes®, the award-winning manufacturer of tents, sleeping bags, pads and apparel, adds 12 styles to its robust line of 2017 sleeping bags, including a collection of custom-fit mummy bags that offer adjustable sizing for better comfort and warmth.

“This year, our bag line is stronger than any other time in our 15 year history,” says Bill Gamber, Big Agnes co-founder and president. “We are adding three major collections to the line, offering bags with features that aren’t currently available in the market and have made significant improvements to in-line product. We’ve created this line with a wide range of consumers in mind, and are confident that everyone will find something they like.”

New sleeping bags in the spring 2017 collection include eight new traditional mummy bags available in 650-fill and 850-fill DownTek™ options, two zipperless sleep-system bags and a new lightweight double wide bag built for couples. Improvements made to in-line products include color updates to the classic series and significant construction improvements to the double wide series.

The new sleeping bags will be introduced at Outdoor Retailer Summer Market in Salt Lake City, August 3-6 at the Big Agnes booth #10041. For more information please contact Carl Johnson, carl.johnson@backbonemedia.net.

Also available in men’s models Wiley 30°F, Skeeter SL 20°F and Beryl SL 0°F (customizable fit not incorporated into men’s bags).

Thunderhead SL 30°F and Pin Ears SL 20°F zipperless Big Agnes system bags
