Built especially for couples, the Big Agnes Sentinel 30 Degree Double-Wide sleeping bag is extra-roomy and extra-comfortable. Insulated with lightweight and compressible water-resistant 600 fill DownTek insulation, the bag packs down smaller than most double wide bags, making it an option for mild weather backpacking or for family and car camping.
The bag is insulated with 600 fill DownTek insulation. Down insulation has long been renowned for its compressible properties and efficiency in delivering an excellent warmth-to-weight ratio. The shortcoming of down has been its susceptibility to the effects of moisture, losing much of its performance qualities when wet or damp. DownTek insulation utilizes nano technology and a proprietary application process to provide water-repellency and both anti-microbial and anti-bacterial protection. A nylon rip-stop shell also features a water repellent treatment and provides lightweight durability.
Insotect Flow technology is used in the Sentinel 30 Degree Double-Wide bag to help eliminate cold spots, regulate the movement of down inside the baffles and offer better body heat distribution. Strategically placed Flow Gate construction eliminates lateral and vertical down shifting by using vertical chambers with "gates" to control the position and density of the down insulation.
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 Sentinel 30 Degree Double-Wide is designed to be used with any two 20"x72" Big Agnes rectangular sleeping pads (sold separately) or other branded pads with comparable dimensions.
A double wide 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 warmth and comfort.
The Big Agnes Sentinel 30 Degree Double-Wide fits to 6' 2" and includes a nylon stuff sack and mesh storage sack.

Real Customer Reviews
- Excellent for short backpacking trips
Likes: Very warm, zipper on both side, compression
Dislikes: Works best with Big Agnes Air Mattresses
- Recommend pairing with blanket.
Likes: Very comfortable, fits Big Agnes Q-CORE SLX DOUBLE-WIDE pad very well.
Dislikes: My partner and I are both on the smaller side (5'9", 5'2") and we found when we paired this pad with the Big Agnes double pad which stretches the bag out, this created a large air gap on one side which was very cold. We slept much better after we paired the bag with a Rumpl blanket which insulated us from the air gap.
- perfect for couples backcountry camping.
Likes: For a two person bag it is really light and warm. Actually lighter than our single bags and compresses well. Takes a little more room but still fits well in my 65 liter pack. Sleeping pads slip into sleeve so you cant twist yourself up in bag. Also considered the Nemo Tango Duo but liked the hood design of the Big Agnes better and the sale price made it easy to pull the trigger.
- We never slept this comfortably in the backcountry!
Likes: - Super comfortable and not too hot even on summer nights thanks to the full zippers on each side to open up the bag and use it as a comforter
- packs down to about the same size as my one person 30 degrees sleeping bag and is super light
- I would recommend getting the Big Agnes Q-Core SLX Double Wide sleeping pad since it fit perfectly into the sleeve of the sleeping bag and the pad is also super light, packs down small but is extremely comfortable
- Also, get the Big Agnes Pumphouse Ultra which I use as the compression stuff sack for the sleeping bag as well as a pump to fill the sleeping pad with air (also can be used as a dry sack and a camp shower)
Dislikes: - Might not be ideal for tall people like me (I am 6"3'). It works fine in the summer when you use the bag as a blanket but I tried using it as a cold weather bag and it's definitely a bit short for me and the hood that goes over your head is too tight on my head. But that's only if you stretch out straight, I usually sleep on my side while cuddling my wife so it shouldn't be too much of a problem.
