Summary: If you are like me, a bigger guy, who likes to sleep on his side, yet stay warm and be comfy all night, then you will love the Big Agnes Lost Ranger 15. I have gone through a few sleeping bags in my life. Before backpacking I was drawn to square bags because I had a lot more room to move around, I wasn't worried about bulk since I wasn't lugging it along the trail and warmth never seemed to be an issue. But things changed once I discovered backpacking.
Pros: Warmth, Packable, Very light for its size.
Cons: There are lighter bags this size, Occasional zipper snag
Bought this bag from Lees Adventure Sports in Kalamazoo.

Excerpt: Bought this bag from Lees Adventure Sports in Kalamazoo. Used it in the fall and winter in Manisttee, Michigan; very warm bag on cold nights slept with a fleece liner. Also invested in the BA insulated sleeping pad. I'm a big guy, 6'3 and I had plenty of room to roll around in. Very impressed with the quality.

Excerpt: I recently overnighted in an AT shelter using this bag and insulated Big Agnes inflatable pad. The shelter floor was wood planking and I used a nylon bag cover to protect the sleeping bag from dirt, etc. The temp got down to 28 degrees F ( according to my small thermometer)and I froze in that bag! I was pleased in the roominess but what is that worth if you are freezing!!? I even got up in the middle of the night and put my silk bag liner in but to no avail.

Excerpt: Let me start by saying, Big Agnes makes some seriously tough products. I bought this bag three years ago now and have used it every chance I've had since purchase. The bag itself is of unique (to BA) design. There is not down fill in the "back" portion of the bag. Rather, there is a pocket for an air pad of your choice (does not have to be a mattress from BA. ie; Thermarest, etc). This makes for a lighter packweight on those long, rigorous trails or thru-hikes.

Excerpt: Very comfortable sleeping bag. I like not rolling off the pad. I used it in the Adirondacks on a cold Columbus Day weekend (temps in the low 20's) along with a lightweight down sleeping bag liner from Western Mountaineering. I tend to sleep pretty warm, and with the liner I slept very (but not overly) warm; bottom line, even for a warm sleeper like me, I am not sure about the 15 degree rating...
Excerpt: I purchased the Lost Ranger in my quest to find a bag that I can move in and have room. While this was more bag than I wanted to pay for, I really love this bag. The bag is 650 fill goose down bag and keeps you warm with a temp rating of 15 degrees. Used together with the Big Agnes insulated sleeping pad that you can purchase for either 15 or 35 degrees, it is an unbeatable combination.
Excerpt: I purchased a Lost Ranger for similar reasons as other, to find a bag I had a little room to move in. I found the Lost Ranger too cold, far from the 15° rating even with 2 sleep pads. I returned the bag as a result. In additon, the zipper constantly snagged the bag itself. Pack size was fantastic, however.
