Product Highlights

With its high-performance fill and a roomy semi-rectangular shape, the Big Agnes Encampment 15 Degree sleeping bag is designed for 3-season backpacking and camping. Synthetic insulation makes the Encampment 15 Degree ideal for wet and humid climates.

The Encampment 15 Degree is insulated with Integrity synthetic fill. Synthetic insulation dries much faster than down and provides warmth even when wet. This is particularly important if you'll be backpacking or camping in wet weather or humid climates. The Encampment 15 Degree's nylon microfiber rip-stop shell fabric has a surface treatment that further helps to repel water.

In a traditional sleeping system, the bag lies on top of a sleeping pad. In this configuration, many people find themselves rolling off the pad at night. Plus, the insulation on the bottom of the bag is compressed by the sleeper's weight. Once compressed, the fill loses most of its insulating properties. The Big Agnes Sleep System is different, joining the bag and pad together. The pad slides into a sleeve on the bottom side of the bag, supplying insulation to the bottom of the bag while the top 2/3 of the bag is insulated like a traditional sleeping bag. This design provides a secure foundation so you can roll, twist and turn freely during the night without ever rolling off your pad. It also prevents the bag from twisting and engulfing you in an uncomfortable mess. Big Agnes uses this system throughout their entire line of sleeping bags.

Once you match your bag with a rectangular sleeping pad of the appropriate dimensions (20" x 72" for Regular and 20" x 78" for Long), spending a night in the Encampment 15 Degree is both warm and comfortable.

A number of performance features equip the Encampment 15 Degree for efficient insulation. A contoured, insulated hood keeps your head warm and a no-draft collar keeps cold air from creeping in the top of the bag and reaching the interior of the Encampment 15 Degree. A full-length draft tube sewn behind the zipper further ensures that cold air remains outside of the bag. A no-draft wedge protects the connection between the bag and the pad, so that cold air doesn't sneak in between the two. A built-in pillow pocket holds clothes or a Big Agnes Air Core Pillow (sold separately), providing a comfortable resting place for your head and neck.

For your convenience, the Big Agnes Encampment 15 Degree sleeping bag is available in your choice of Right or Left zippers and in Regular (fits up to 5'10") and Long (fits up to 6'6") lengths. A nylon stuff sack and cotton storage sack are included with each Encampment 15 Degree bag.

Styles available: Long Left Zipper, Small Left Zipper

Big Agnes part numbers: BELL11, BESL11

    Likes: I liked the extra shoulder girth, which was the main reason I bought the bag. It is hard to find a bag that fits larger framed people well. I also really liked the concept of the sleep system where that pad fits directly into the bag. It kept the bag on the pad without a possibility of slipping off. The bag was cozy and warm. Came with a nice storage bag.

    Dislikes: As mentioned above, the main reason I bought the bag was for the extra shoulder girth. While the bag was nice and wide, the maximum width pad that fits in the bag is 20". For me that negated the extra width. If I am on my back on a 20" pad, my arms hang off the sides. I have determined I need a 25" pad. If you are fine on a 20" pad and you like a little extra room in your bag, you will probably really like the encampment. It just didn't work for me.

    Likes: I love the roominess of the Big Agnes sleeping, it's great for those of us that are restless sleepers. I really have a difficult time getting a good night sleep in a mummy bag. Not a problem with my Big Agnes!
    Can' t really comment on the temperature rating to 15 degrees, but I used it at 40 degrees and was comfortable.

    Dislikes: The only reason I gave it a 4 star rating is the sleeping pad issue. I have always used a particular brand pad and didn't want to give it up for the bag.
    It fits, just barely. A lot of stretching and pulling.
    If you don't have a preference, I would suggest getting a Big Agnes sleeping pad for a better fit in the bag.

    Likes: This bag rocks! Well suited for use by bigger people or people who like a lot of space to spread out when they are sleeping. This bag is large, providing loads of space to roll around with out taking the bag with you. While larger, it packs down well and isn't too heavy.

    Also, it stays in place, and doesn't get tangled up due to the pad insert on the bottom of the bag. With a good air sleeping pad, you will not get cold.

    I had an encampment 15 before, regular length, which i passed down to my son and bought 2 longs with opposing zippers so they could be joined. I found the temperature rating to be accurate as long as an insulated pad is used.

    Dislikes: Nothing to complain about from me. I was initially worried about the temp rating on this bag as it's a system bag and REQUIRES an insulated pad rated to at least 15 degrees. Without the pad...no bottom insulation. This bag performs well at the advertised temps!

    Likes: This bag rocks! Straight up - it's probably best suited for use by bigger people or people who like a lot of space to spread out when they are sleeping. Reason being this bag is large, providing loads of space to roll around with out taking the bag with you.

    Dislikes: no complaints! I was initially leery about the temp rating. However, when the bag is coupled with the proper pad (one rated to 15 degrees)I slept comfortably at 15 degrees.

    Likes: I loved all the aspects about the sleep bag. Everyone in our troop recommended Big Agnes. I did miss when reading/reviewing that it is designed to work WITH the BA air pad. Therefore I had to return it b/c I've already invested in a different brand air mat in a rectangular style that was not compatible with this BA mummy bag. I also liked how "roomy" the shoulder to hip area is, b/c I am side sleeper.

    Dislikes: designed to work/fit with BA air mats

    Likes: The insert sleeve for the camping pad was excellent to keep the pad in place and reduce bag weight by not having rear fill. The bag was very warm when used solo. It is cool that they make left and right zippered bags so they can be joined together.

    Dislikes: When zipped together with the opposing bag it does not provide the same level of warmth. On really cold nights keep bags as individuals.

    Likes: as my first Big Agnes bag i was hoping the extra width would be noticeable and i was not disappointed. i am a lousy camping sleeper and need to roll around a bit inside my bag and the Encampment gives me that little extra space to do it. luckily Big Agnes sleeping pads are great too because this unit has no insulation on the bottom. actually, i ususally use my giant Thermarest 30" wide pad when car camping and it works just as well with the bag as when i slip my summer BIg Agnes pad into the bag. for the warmth factor, the Encampment seems to perform well in its temp range.

    Dislikes: nothing.

    Likes: Awesome sleeping bag. Well worth its 15 degree rating, roomy, not super heavy for a synthetic bag.

    Dislikes: Really nothing although a foot vent or gear pocket would have been.

    Likes: This bag saves weight by eliminating insulation on the bottom of the bag. Because of this you do need to have a sleeping pad. It is designed to be used with the rectangular Big Agnes inflatable pad. If you are going to be in cold weather make sure to get an insulated one. If you get bags with opposite sided zippers you can zip two of them together for a cozy couples bag, while still being able to have a single bag when you need it.

    Dislikes: Nothing so far. I'm still waiting to use it in cold weather. Going to Iceland, we'll see how it holds up and how warm it keeps me.
