reducing our impact one tent at a time.

Big Agnes is the first to introduce solution-dyed tent body and fly fabrics to the equipment category. The ultralight Fly Creek and Tiger Wall backpacking and bikepacking tents in this collection are made with solution-dyed fabrics which drastically reduce water and energy consumption during manufacturing. The result is better for the environment and the high UV resistance of the solution-dyed fabrics improves the quality of our tents. Improving already great tents isn’t easy, choosing to lessen the environmental impact while doing so is.

dominico textile.

Dominico Textile makes some of the lightest and strongest fabric available to us for tent fabric. Strong enough for parachutes and paragliders, Dominico is known the world over for its quality, consistency and durability but is lesser known in the outdoor industry. We have worked closely with Dominico for years to develop performance fabrics for select technical tents in our line.

downTek™ water repellent down insulation.

Down sleeping bag insulation has long been the favorite of backpackers, thru-hikers, and mountaineers due to its relative light weight and ability to pack down small. While down bags generally cost more and require more care to keep dry in humid conditions, the soft feel of down is unsurpassed and extremely popular. Big Agnes features DownTek™ water repellent down insulation in all of our down sleeping bags.

Torchlight Expandable Mummy Sleeping Bags

One-shape-fits-all sleeping bags have been the industry standard for generations, and that's why we designed the Torchlight series of expandable mummy sleeping bags. With unzippable panels on either side for creating a perfect fit, without sacrificing weight or warmth, our Torchlight bags can give you up to 6" of extra room at the shoulders, hips, feet, or throughout the entire sleeping bag.
