Gear Review: Big Agnes DREAM ISLAND Doublewide

Big Agnes DREAM ISLAND Sleeping Bag and HinMan 50” PAD

Does your spouse insist on camping with a down duvet? Mine did, until we tried this doublewide sleeping set up. Spacious, rated to -10 Celsius, with two pillow sacks and a zipper on each side, the Dream Island does sleep like a couples’ dream – perfect for festivalling, car camping and short hikes. However, at 20 lbs combined, this set-up isn’t ideal for multi-day expeditions (although if the other person carries the tent, food, stove, pots and liquor, then it totally is). bigagnes.com
