Utilizing water-repellent 650-fill DownTek insulation, the Big Agnes Roxy Ann Women's 15 Degree sleeping bag is designed for 3-season backpacking. Not your average bag, the Roxy Ann Women's 15 Degree utilizes the Big Agnes System to offer more internal space while packing smaller than other traditional bags.
Big Agnes employs ergonomically tailors its women’s bags to properly accommodate female backpackers and campers. These bags are cut wider at the hips and have a shorter overall bag length to ensure thermal efficiency. Additional insulation in the foot box and the core area of the sleeping bag account for those areas women most often find difficult to keep warm.
The Roxy Ann Women’s 15 Degree bag is insulated with 650 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 microfiber rip-stop shell also features a water repellent treatment and provides lightweight durability.
Insotect Flow technology is used in the Roxy Ann Women’s 15 Degree 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 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 otherwise uninsulated bottom of the bag while the top and sides of the bag are 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.
The Roxy Ann Women’s 15 Degree is available in Petite (fits up to 5' 6") and Regular (fits up to 5’10") lengths. Once you match your bag with a rectangular sleeping pad of the appropriate dimensions (20" x 66" for Petite and 20" x 72" for Regular), spending a night in the Roxy Ann Women’s 15 Degree is both warm and comfortable.
An insulated ergonomic hood, a draft tube located along the length of the zipper, and an insulated neck yoke lock in heat and keep out cold air to enhance the warmth and comfort provided by the Roxy Ann Women's 15 Degree. A built-in pillow pocket holds the Big Agnes Air Core Pillow (sold separately) or other pillows or clothes in place, providing a comfortable resting place for your head and neck.
Each Big Agnes Roxy Ann Women's 15 Degree sleeping bag includes a nylon stuff sack and a mesh storage sack.
