Big Agnes Haybro Sleeping Bag Review

Big Agnes Haybro Sleeping Bag review

Though it’s technically a bag built for teens, it works fine for shorter adults. Big Agnes is famous for its sleeping systems which combine sleeping bags and pads in a sleeve on the back of the bag. With that, I also tested the Q-Core sleeping pad with the Haybro.

I tested the system winter camping along the shore of Lake Superior. On a 15-degree night sleeping on the snow, I woke up cold.

On other snowy occasions, I used a closed cell foam pad in tandem with the Q-Core and slept warm and cozy.

The bag is very reasonably priced; there aren’t many 15-degree bags out there for $100. The three-pound weight is a tradeoff here, but you can’t expect it to be light at that price.

The hood of the bag has little flaps that are supposed to help cover your eyes. I hate mornings, so the idea of blocking the sun is great, though they aren’t a perfect solution.

The pad is four inches thick and super comfy. They have an option that is 66″ long which paired nicely with the 5’6″ (66-inch) sleeping bag.

What I Didn’t Like

As a side sleeper, I don’t always love having the bag attached to the pad. I shift while sleeping and end up breathing in the bag, which can cause condensation to build up on colder trips.

Since it’s rated to 15 degrees, I would have liked the pad to stay warm on its own down to that temp.

Who Should Buy It?

A shorter adult or teen on a budget looking to camp in colder weather. Or possibly someone who sleeps cold and wants that extra buffer of warmth.
