“As a side sleeper, the Women’s Sidewinder SL 20° sleeping bag immediately became my favorite for car camping. The ambidextrous zip, additional insulation at hips and feet (where I always feel the cold) and it’s ability to move with me as I turn, are game changers for this rotisserie chicken. I truly feel cocooned as I lay in the bed of my truck looking at the night sky and quickly fall asleep no matter how hard I try to stay awake to gaze at the stars.” – Ann Driggers, Big Agnes Ambassador
- Women’s Sidewinder SL 20° sleeping bag – Specifically designed for those who sleep on their sides, the award-winning Sidewinder Series was engineered to ensure warmth, comfort, and ease of use no matter which side you’re on. Our Women’s specific bags differ in shape and fill weight with a less drastic taper from shoulders, to hips, to feet – reducing cold spots and creating more warmth where it counts.
- Women’s Trudy Jacket – Hang out slopeside or out on the town, the Trudy Jacket provides function and mobility with reliable insulation to provide all over warmth in cold weather conditions.
- Stagecoach Duffle – Take it all on the road with the ultimate rolling duffel.
Tested and approved by our Big Agnes staff and ambassadors, our favorite gifts for him range from innovative products that started Big Agnes to our newly redesigned apparel collection.
“The Anvil Horn 15° is one of my favorites year after year. Reminder, you must pair this with a pad for the bottom insulation, but since I always pack my Q-Core SLX pad on my outings this lightweight bag has been my routine go-to. The regular size fits perfectly in the back of my Ford Escape and the hood is big enough to fit my bedroom pillow while car camping. Best part, the rectangular shape gives me more room than traditional mummy bags, so I roll around inside and the bag stays in place. I can always find the zipper in the middle of the night, and I never fall off my pad thanks to the Flex Pad Sleeve. This is the one bag I need for year round camping. Yes, it’s even made my snow caving trips!” – Andy Dittgen, Big Agnes Customer Service Manager
- Anvil Horn 15° – The Anvil Horn offers a roomy, rectangle-shaped sleeping space with an integrated Flex Pad Sleeve on the bottom. With technical fabrics and construction, compressible insulation and tons of comfort features, these comfortable sleeping bags are designed to be lightweight enough for backpacking but cozy enough you’ll want them in the campground too. Sleeping pad required for this system to perform as designed – sold separately.
- Insulated Q-Core SLX pad – When it comes to superlight comfort, the Insulated Q-Core SLX pad stands alone. R-Value rated at 3.2 for comfort through three-seasons.
- Men’s Zetto Jacket – For the ultralight minimalist who requires functionality and style, the men’s ultralight down Zetto Jacket is a light-as-air full-zip, hooded layer for performance and warmth.
Favorites for the entire family? We have those too! And too many to choose from, because sleeping in the dirt is always more fun with your adventure buddy(s) by your side.
“The thing is 9lbs & packs down so small you could store it in your car, yet it unfolds out & covers so much ground everyone can fit underneath with room to spare. I drive a 2000 Subaru Outback & am taller than the roof, I couldn’t get a setup that just unfolds outward & sits less than 5 feet above the ground. The Sand Wash Car Tarp pops upward & allows a ton of headroom, anyone can stand straight up underneath. It’s just what I needed for a low roof car.” – Andrew Kearns, adventure photographer
- Sand Wash Car Tarp – Create a sunshade wherever you go with this roof-rack supported tarp. This tarp features two cross poles and two tarp poles that pulls out straight from the bag attached to your vehicle and sets up quickly and easily for shade-on-the-fly.
“Best car camping sleeping solution out there. This cot is SO comfortable. Last week on a quick family getaway to the desert I was in charge of starting the morning coffee and breakfast routine. Well, the Goosenest Double Decker Inflatable Cot is so comfortable I couldn’t get out of bed. When heading out on a camping weekend I refuse to leave home without it. Couple this with the Hinman sleeping pad in double decker mode and it’s as good as my bed at home. Intuitive design, easy setup, amazing comfort, and great quality, the Goosenest is the cats pajamas!” – Eric Einfeld, Big Agnes Sales Operations and Planning Manager
- Goosenest Double Decker Inflatable Cot – The Mother of Comfort brings you our most innovative design yet for sleeping comfortably at camp, an inflatable cot for the backcountry. For those who prefer a bit more distance between you and the dirt, our Goosenest Double Decker Inflatable Cot will keep you comfortably elevated and cradled on uneven or rough surfaces.
- Hinman self-inflating pad – The Hinman is a self-inflating, high-density foam-core, cold-weather pad with a two-way adjustable valve that makes inflation, deflation, and micro-adjustments easier than ever.
Campers and hikers love all things outdoors. You can’t go wrong when gifting any Big Agnes gear – but this list of swag includes items small enough to stuff a stocking or win mega kudos at your next gift exchange.
“It’s honestly like sleeping on clouds. When I purchased the AXL Air Pillow I was amazingly overwhelmed just how tiny it is. It’s not just about comfort, this pillow takes up absolutely no space in my pack. I will never skip out on packing my pillow again.” – Kevin Fonger, Direct & Group Sales Manager
- AXL Air Pillow – nestle snug in your bed knowing how awesome you are at gift giving, a camp pillow is the cherry on top of any camper’s sleep system.
