The Big Agnes Sentinel 30 is a great option for couples wanting to share a sleeping bag that is light enough for backpacking and is small enough not to take up the entire pack.
Big Agnes says:
Down fill Big Agnes System bags built for two.
Like your own bed in the backcountry! Our Doublewide Series eliminates the need to zip two bags together so there’s nothing keeping you apart from your cuddle bug in your tent, van, or wherever you need a super comfy bed. The much improved Sentinel 30 is insulated with 650 fill DownTek™ ; a water-repellent down insulation that repels water while maintaining insulating properties and loft for a cozy, warm sleep experience. The Flex Pad Sleeve on the bottom makes connecting two pads or stretching around a doublewide pad easier and fast than ever while still allowing the quilted soft polyester shell fabric on top and cozy polyester taffeta lining inside to drape like the comforter on your bed. So snuggle in for the night, this might be your best night's rest under the stars.
Big Agnes' 2019 Sentinel 30 Double Wide Sleeping Bag is a great option for couples wanting to share a sleeping bag that is suitable for light backpacking and is small enough not to take up the entire pack.
The Sentinel 30 has sleeves to accommodate either 2 sleeping mats or one double width mat so no need for mat couplers to hold the mats together. As this sleeping bag is designed for sharing it is more comfortable than zipping 2 single sleeping bags together and probably works out lighter.
There is no insulation in the bottom of the bag as it relies on the use of insulated mats to keep you warm.
Down sleeping bag insulation has long been the favourite of backpackers and mountaineers due to it's relative light weight and ability to pack down small. While down bags generally cost more and require more care to keep dry in humid conditions, the soft feel of down is unsurpassed and extremely popular. This Big Agnes sleeping bag features DownTek water repellent down insulation which repels water while maintaining it's loft and insulation value.
