The Yampa 45 is part of the classic down series of Big Agnes sleeping bags that offer warmth, compressibility and the 'Big Agnes System' which integrates the sleeping bag and sleeping mat.
Big Agnes says:
Warm weather bikepackers, backpackers, and anyone who can appreciate the ultra-compressibility of a lightweight, 650 fill DownTek™ Big Agnes System bag, unite! The Yampa offers cozy quilted construction with a lofty fill that compresses for optimum packing when a super warm bag isn't needed. Paired with a UL tent and pad, or maybe a hammock, and you've got a premium set up with maximum comfort.
The Big Agnes Yampa 45 is a lightweight down sleeping bag that's focused just as much on comfort then it is on weight.
The Downtec hydrophobic treated 650 fill power down repels water and speeds up drying time it if does get wet. The lightweight nylon ripstop fabrics are durable and soft to the touch. Vertical side walls help to trap heat closer to your body and the Tapered vaulted foot box creates wiggle room for your feet. The bag is well proportioned and quite spacious internally. This would suite people who want that extra space or those who just move around a lot in there sleep.
The stretch fabric designed to contain the sleeping mat improves the connection between bag and mat making for a great nights sleep. To use the full pad sleeve a rectangular sleeping mat is needed and the dimensions of the bag need to match. The material does stretch enough to fit a pillow in too to maximise that comfort.
