Big Agneshas been designing luxurious and lightweight sleeping bags, pads and tents in Steamboat Springs, Colorado, since 2001.
A relatively young company, Big Agnes has already earned quite a reputation for reliability. By constantly seeking innovation while combining convenience and comfort, Big Agnes creates the ultimate backcountry experience. The inspiration for Big Agnes’ gear comes directly from their backyard: the rugged landscape of Colorado. Each sleeping bag, pad, and tent is named after a local geographical feature- where most of them are tested! Big Agnes is perhaps best known for it's innovation of Integrated Pad Sleeves in their sleeping bags. Creating a place for the Sleeping Pad to do its job of insulating the sleeper meant that Big Agnes could save space and weight in every sleeping bag. This is big news for backpackers, of course, but whether you are traversing the alps or camping in your backyard, you'll appreciate the fact that you'll never roll off your sleeping pad again! Big Agnes has been a leader in well-built, long-lasting, super-light tents like the Fly Creek UL1 popular with minimalist, solo campers, and the bigger Fly Creek UL2 and the complete line of Fly Creek and Copper Spur Tents. Big Agnes is a small company strongly committed to manufacturing environmentally and socially responsible products. They offer several products that feature up to 100% recycled content materials, not to mention their offices and warehouse are powered by 100% wind power!
Big Agnes Tents and Big Agnes Sleeping Bags have garnered recent awards from Backpacker, Outside, National Geographic Adventure, and Men’s Journal magazines. They have also received numerous awards recognizing their “green” products.
