Full Review:
So there I was, embarking on a 3 day long kayak trip where I would test out my brand new Big Agnes Spike Lake 14 Sleeping Bag with "DOWNTEK" technology for the first time. Long story short, my tent ended up taking on a good amount of water the last night of the trip and a full on puddle collected around myself and my sleeping bag. I’m not going to lie, for the price of sleeping bag, I was a little skeptical at how "waterproof" Big Agnes's DOWNTEK technology was. However, after that fateful rainy night and sleeping in a puddle of water for hours, I am a true believer in all the hype! Not only did I remain dry, but I was still warm and comfortable despite lying in about 1 inch of water! The Big Agnes Spike Lake 14 is the BEE'S KNEES! And for the price, YOU CANNOT BEAT IT! Pick up your own Spike Lake today!

-- Summary Points—

"The Good:” Cost-Effective, Lightweight, Durable, Cool Colors, Extremely Comfortable, Tested Tough, Outdoor Approved!

"The Not so Good:" Making your friends jealous.

The Bottom Line: If you are a budget-minded dirtbag looking for a high quality sleeping bag, the Big Agnes Spike Lake 14 is worth your while!
