I love this bag. The bag...

I love this bag. The bag has a sleeve that contains the sleeping pad, which I love; no more sliding off the pad at night! I never sleep on my back and the bag works just fine for me. I'm a big person, and I find the bag roomy enough for me and my 2 doxies. I love the big foot box too. This bag is roomy! I have yet to be cold, or hot, in this bag, and the temp ranges I've been in range from 80 F down to freezing. It compresses down to a reasonable size for what I do (i.e. canoe/camp). I've had the bag for about 5 years, and have yet to have any quality issues; it is well made.

You will either love or...

You will either love or hate the Big Agnes "sleep system." You might love it if you're a back sleeper. As a side sleeper it didn't work for me.

The sleep system means that there is no insulation on the bottom of the sleeping bag. Instead there's a pocket that holds your mattress. There are several problems with this. When you turn, the sleeping bag doesn't move with you because it's attached to the pad. When you turn over inside the bag, your face is now buried in the hood. You can't draw the bag in close to your body, again because it's held rigidly by the mattress. This creates large air spaces around your body that you can't close up. The foot in particular is a huge dead air space.

On top of these problems inherent to the design, backpackers report that the Lost Ranger 15, and Big Agnes sleeping bags in general, are overrated for temperature. They say that the Lost Ranger is comfortable down to about 30 or 35 degrees. For that temperature rating it's quite heavy.

There are better sleeping bags. Consider the Lost Ranger if you're a back sleeper but be careful of the temperature rating.
