Big Agnes Lost Ranger 15 Sleeping Bag and Q-Core Sleeping Pad - Review
The first thing you notice when you unpack the Big Agnes Lost Ranger sleeping bag is the cool colour scheme: the striped pattern of varying shades of blue with the red zipper is a refreshing change from the monotone norm. The second thing you notice is the shape: this isn’t your typical mummy bag. Instead it’s more of a rectangular shape that allows for a lot of room in the waist and feet. After an initial review I set about blowing up the Q-Core sleeping pad (the company’s self-inflating models are the Two Track and Hinman pads) and sliding it into the sleeve in the bottom of the sleeping bag, which took me longer than I expected. (I suppose you’d get better at it with practice.) The theory is that by having an integrated sleeping pad system you can forego the down in the underside of the bag, plus you don’t have to worry about rolling off your sleeping pad.
