Insulated with lightweight, compressible 600-fill goose down, the Big Agnes King Solomon 15 Degree Double-Wide sleeping bag provides backpacking couples with 3-season performance.
Built especially for couples, the Big Agnes King Solomon 15 Degree Double-Wide sleeping bag is extra-roomy and extra-comfortable. Insulated with lightweight and compressible 600-fill goose down, the King Solomon 15 Degree Double-Wide sleeping bag packs down smaller than most double wide bags, making it an option for backpacking or for family and car camping.
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 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.
The King Solomon 15 Degree Double-Wide is designed to be used with any two 20"x72" Big Agnes REM sleeping pads (sold separately) or other branded pads with comparable dimensions.
A doublewide insulated ergonomic hood, draft tubes located along the length of the dual zippers, a center no-draft flap and separate insulated neck yokes lock in heat and keep out cold air to enhance the warmth and comfort provided by the King Solomon 15 Degree Double-Wide. Built-in pillow pockets hold Big Agnes Air Core Pillows (sold separately), clothes or other pillows, providing a comfortable resting place for heads and necks.
The Big Agnes King Solomon 15 Degree Double-Wide fits to 6' 2" and includes a nylon stuff sack and cotton storage sack.

Likes: The warmth is great! This bag gives you the flexibility to sleep close together and still have room to move around to be comfortable. My man was not too hot but I was warm enough to be comfortable. We love our new addition. I compresses pretty well for a double, what do expect. It fills up my entire lower compartment on my Baltero 65!!
Likes: Great product! I definitely love! looking forward to using it in the mountains!
Likes: Really light, warm, it looks like it will last a lifetime. We got it for backpacking with our baby girl.
Dislikes: sleeping pads are not include
Likes: The King Solomon Double-Wide Bag is just the thing for couples looking to spend some time in the backcountry. We finally had the opportunity (Feb.2011) to take this bag out to Wharton State Forest, NJ and test it out. Weighing in at roughly 5 lbs, it is not much, if any heavier than carrying seperate bags (I carry the bag, pads, and tent - she carries the food, stove and first aid). The quality of the workmanship seems excellent and the bag is very soft and comfortable for sleeping. Paired with two (seperate purchase) Big Agnes insulated air core pads (which stay in place inside of the sleeping pad sleeves), sleeping on the ground is like sleeping on a bed.
Dislikes: The night we were out, the temperature dropped to 31 overnight. I thought the bag was plenty warm, sleeping in shorts and t-shirt with my side partially unzipped. Erica said she was slightly cold, sleeping in long underwear and a hat. I think that if we had completely zipped up my side, cinched the mummy top, and used the draft collars, it would have been plenty warm for her, even down a few more degrees. The bag could be more roomy (be ready to share your space), but it does fit us both (i'm 5'11" 250 lbs and she is 5'6" 145 lbs), and leaves enough room to toss and turn. We'll see how durable this bag is over time, but i am not concerned at this point.
Likes: Very lightweight and surprisingly compact for a double sleeping bag. The pockets for the sleeping pads is a very great idea: it helps keep the weight of the bag low as the bottom insulation is provided by the sleeping pads, and the pads stay put. The fabric is very smooth and silky yet durable, and the down filling is so soft and warm.
Dislikes: The fabric sometimes gets caught in the zippers causing them to stick. I only wish that they could have made this bag just a bit wider and longer without increasing the weight too much.
