The best thing to happen to camping since s'mores.

Add the Big Agnes Women's Elsie 15-Degree Synthetic Sleeping Bag to your list of camping must-haves, because camping without this beauty would be like sitting around a campfire pit without a burning campfire. Its versatile synthetic insulation can get a little wet without losing effectiveness, and it works with the Elsie's thermally efficient mummy shape to save weight and keep you warm when the temperatures duck well below freezing. The Elsie is a straightforward bag without excessive features, which helps keep the weight down (under three pounds) so the bag won't weigh you down when you bring it along on your more adventurous backpacking trips. Big Agnes also threw in a mesh storage sack to keep the bag good and lofty when it's being stored between trips, and a stuff sack so you can throw the Else in your backpack without it eating up all of the space you had planned for s'more ingredients.

Amazing bag, but doesn't pack down like

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

Really want to love this sleeping bag, but it doesn't compress down to 9x10 with the bag provided. Takes up too much room in my pack, so I had to return it. It is so warm, the mummy head is amazing.

Is this the kind of sleeping bag that only has the insulation on the top and just a thin layer of polyester
on bottom where you MUST use a sleeping pad?

Women's Traditional Synthetic Mummy Bag

A take anywhere, sleep well every time sleeping bag that is insulated all around with a cozy fill and a roomier mummy shape than a traditional design. Lightweight enough to stuff in your pack for cooler weather overnights but comfortable enough you'll want to snuggle up in it year round. This bag is versatile and so comfortable you'll want to take it on every outing.

Perfect Synthetic Sleeping Bag

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

A warm, compressible, synthetic sleeping bag is hard to find. After suffering through freezing nights in a bag that wasn't warm enough and then sacrificing half my pack volume with a different cold-weather sleeping bag, I knew I had to find something where I wasn't compromising warmth or precious pack space. Because I wanted a bag that wasn't made out of animal products, I had to do a lot of research, since most of the compressible, warm bags are made with down.

The Big Agnes Elsie is gorgeous, plush, soft on the inside, and easy to get in and out of. I'm 5'1, so the petite sizing is perfect. It easily fits in the sleeping bag compartment of my Osprey Aura 65, which my old synthetic 10 degree bag could not do. I couldn't be happier!

What temps did you use it in? Thank you!

Christina, the lowest I’ve used it in are the low 20’s.

Thank you!

i just got this and i love everything about it!
what size of compression bag would fit this best ? how many liters?

is 15F a comfort or lower limit rating? What's the comfort temperature?

Hey Tatiana, since this is a women's sleeping bag, 15F is the women's comfort rating. There is no lower limit rating for this bag since it is a women's specific bag.
