View Full Version : Big Guy

08-29-2008, 22:23
I am A pretty big guy. 6'5" 290 lbs. Broad shoulders and a Barrel Chest. I have a big agnes sleeping bag that is not big enough for me (yes it is a long, with a wedge.). Does any one know of a sleeping bag that will accommodate a big fella.

I'm 6'5", now officially down to 250, but when I was 270 this bag fit me fine:


This is a colder rated version:


For winter camping, I use this:
Oops, can't find it. Maybe they don't make it any more. Sierra Designs flex-type bag (I want to say Flex 3D), -25*

I have these two WM bags, 15* and 30* (the 15* (Badger) has plenty of room, the 30* (Megalite) has adequate room):



Here are WM specs for bigs and longs (use shoulder girth as your guide for turnablility-in-the-bag factor):


Campmor has a similar guide

Wow... someone my size. i have had great success with this bag Marmot Sawtooth X=Wide (http://www.campmor.com/outdoor/gear/Product___46440).
This bag is an extra inch wider than the TNF bags

There is also a synth version (trestle).

You might also consider The Mont Bell (http://www.campsaver.com/ItemMatrix.asp?GroupCode=mtb0028&MatrixType=1)Super stretch series. I have one of these and it is incredibly roomy.

Let me know what you choose. I have been very happy with both.

I second the Sawtooth X-Wide! At 6'3'' 310lbs it fit me well.

Another big guy here. I love my Marmot trestles 15 x-wide/x-long, bulky to carry,but it is a VERY large bag.

nice, i'm 6'4 but only around 235-240 and looking to replace my 5 lb sleeping bag next, those look like great options to check out ... Thanks!
