    Roomiest Sleeping Bag?

    Lately, my trips out overnight with a sleeping bag have been on the sleepless side. I feel like I get claustrophobic zipping up inside the bag and being unable to move. Does anyone have some suggestions for a more spacious bag to sleep in?

    nemo spoon shape is a good choice - the disco 15 is a nice choice for 3 season use.

    check out certain big agnes bags- they have a super wide profile but also forgo insulation underneath to mate with a sleeping pad in the sleeve. maintains similar weight to other comparable temp bags but much roomier.

    Lots of options out there for "semirectangular" bags.

    Zip one of these into your bag. I have one I'll send for shipping and a six pack.

    Not enough info. Mummy, rectangular or sleeping quilt? A wide sleeping quilt will give you the most room pound-for-pound and IMO is the most comfortable option for backpacking. OTOH, a sleeping quilt is not the best choice for temps below 15F.

    If a quilt checks your poxes, check out the wide sleeping quilts from Enlightened Equipment.

    Montbel bags have elastic sawn in the bag so while it's very spacious, it also hugs you so you don't have to hear a whole bunch of airspace.
    Really comfortable

    I'm not very big; I've been steered away from Big Agnes bags because they're high-volume.

    I like the idea of the sleeping quilt. I wonder if the straps it attaches to with the sleeping pad can get annoying to sleep on in the night though? Any experience with that?

    Montbel bags are wide and then have a spiral elastic that hugs the body and eliminates excess air that needs to be warned up.

    Very comfortable if you don't like tight bags

    I have really broad shoulders and have the Megalite for summer mountain hiking and the Kodiak for winter and car camping from Western Mountaineering. Love both of them for their girth and warmth.

    Another vote for the Nemo Disco - lightweight and roomy AF.

    i like our enlightened equipment accomplice so much that i now use it as my main summer mountaineering sleeping bag with other partners. the thing is the bee's knees. super warm and like 31 oz or something crazy, for a 20 degree bag for two.

    Thanks for the great lead. Looks like they have choices to suit anyone, w (some) models that come in 6', 6' 6", and 7' lengths.

    I have an Enlightened Equipment 20F down quilt, I love it. While no bag / quilt is going to be truly comfortable at the max rating without layers, it's been plenty warm for me on frosty nights. It can strap under your pad and gives a ton of freedom of movement - they do wide sizes as well for even more space.

    If you and a partner each have one they can be linked together to make a single larger quilt as well.

    How do you quilt guys keep draft out and keep it from shifting during the night? I have a sea to summit ember and havenít been able to jive with it so far.

    Never used a quilt, interested in hearing the answer to this though.

    EE quilts come with a nifty clip and elastic system that goes around your pad, and also have a good advice piece as to suggested width. Iím a convert, I donít see lying for or carrying the weight of insulation that just gets contested by body weight.

    Also have an Enlightened Equipment 20F down quilt. It comes with straps to go under your sleeping pad as well as snaps up near the neck area. Personally I have no issues with it moving around or drafts but it is definitely a YMMV thing. I would not get a 0 degree quilt or anything serious for winter camping but for 3 seasons at all elevations its perfect. I have spent a few 20ish degree nights in one and been comfortable wearing a puffy with hood (no hood built into quilt).

    I have the "Wide" quilt which makes it even more luxurious.
