    Help with sleeping bag

    I'm trying to find a 0 degree bag that has room? I bought one that said it is XL both tall and wide, and sadly it fits me like a glove. I cant move, i can barely get the zipper zipped. Any one have suggestions?

    big agnes makes some large bags but they require a air pad for ground dwelling http://www.rei.com/product/811099/bi...e-sleeping-bag

    why not just going with a topquilt? http://wildernesslogics.com/THE-XXL-...-TOP-QUILT.htm

    Montbell makes some stretchy bags... http://www.montbell.us/products/disp.php?p_id=2321139

    I'm a big guy and I have a marmot maverick for my ground dwelling adventure and it fits pretty well however its synthetic and a little heavy. I don't think they make a 0 degree bag in this cut though.

    I'm a fan of the Western Mountaineering semi-rec bags. I can't stand the mummy shape, and the semi-recs have tons of space. I only have the 25F Alder bag, so I can't speak for the warmer models. But I don't think you can go wrong with WM.

    The top three wide bags are definitely Big Agnes, Montbell and Western Mountaineering. I've never tried Western Mountaineering.

    I love how Big Agnes bags are integrated with the pad but I think the Montbell is a better choice for two reasons. First, it's even bigger than Big Agnes and WM. If you want the biggest commercially available bag, get the Montbell 0 degree super spiral (choose UL or not based on your wallet and desire to have it a bit lighter or not). Second, I find Montbell's temp rating much more accurate than Big Agnes.

    I'd recommend Backcountry.com for purchasing Montbell stuff. Good selection and great return policy.
