A luxurious two-person sleeping bag.

Brand: Big Agnes

Model: King Solomon Sleeping Bag 15 degree down

[two-person bag]
After years of zipping together two trim mummy bags, my husband and I have become big fans of this luxurious, 600-fill down, two-person backcountry bed. A bulky double bag presents a packing challenge—even cranked into a compression sack (not included), this bag measures about 10 by 12 inches—so you’ll need a large capacity pack. But the weight and price are competitive against two separate 600-fill, 15°F down bags. We’ve hauled it on a 21-day trek along Nepal’s Annapurna Circuit when temps dipped to 0°F (thanks shared body heat!) and a 22-mile trip on Kauai’s Kalalau Trail when nights were a balmy, humid 72°F (we slept on top of the bag). We each get our own hood, draft collar, and zipper so we can control our own temps—a good thing, since I sleep cold and he sleeps hot. $400; 5 lbs. 4 oz.; 15°F;
