"Husky" guy sleeping bag ?

I am looking for a 2/3 season sleeping bag. something easy to pack. I am 5 ft 8 and close to 280 lbs. About 50 inch waist. Even a 1-2 season bag will work ? I will be tent camping.

Thanks for any info. Cb

Have a look at the Big Agnes Park series bags.

https://www.bigagnes.com/Products/Pr.../Bag/filters/6

I'm 6'2" and 270 lbs., and I use a Summit Park. Very comfortable, and packs down to about 10' x 11". I did a review on Trailspace.com, which is a nice resource for outdoor gear opinions.

a park series bag may just fit...with an extension, big agnes offers zip in extensions to give you a few inches of extra girth.

Or a cabin type duck cloth sleeping bag may be what you're looking for, those come in very wide ranges, I'd seen ones that are 48inches wide. They are not light nor small to pack however, but are very comfy and are built tough, they are generally meant to sleep right in them right on the ground.

Slumberjack offers cheaper ones and you can get better ones from Cabelas and Duluth trading.

+1 On Big Agnes (Park Series) I am 6'3" 250 lbs. and still have room. I went through at least 3 different bags untill I found this one.

+1, with an exped downmat 9dlx. I wear about a 56 suit size. My shoulders just fit.
If i camped alot I'd add the expansion zip in, adds another 6 inches to the girth at the top.

Yup all the way on the Big agnes park bags. Obvously they are a little bulky to pack but man are they comfy. I'm 6' and 280 and can roll over in the bag or cross my legs and even have naughty thoughts with no claustrophobia or discomfort. Best purchase so far for my ADV nights.

More room please!

I'm 6'-1" and 260# and I just got me the Slumberjack Esplanade 20. It has plenty of room, the web site states a 68" shoulder girth which was what I was looking for... More room! Plus it not tapered, now it takes up a little more room rolled up, due to the increase size, but I can live with that.

Plus it not a bad price.

Just for reference, my BA bag has an 80-inch shoulder girth. I'm a girthy guy. As others have mentioned, a zip-in wedge is available that will increase that by 6 inches as well.

That Slumberjack bag looks like a heck of a deal!

I thought of the BA bags for myself too, but they are a little more pricie... plus I recall these don't have any insulation on the back side, but have a sleeve for a insulation pad. Nice ideal, but I tend to roll a little an would probably freeze my back side off.

no you won't,, thats the point of the sleeve,, I flop around like a (big) fish at night, this is the only solution I found that works
