Last week, I told you that my cubicle has become the storage area for the outdoors stuff we feature in our “Great Gear” section. Manufacturers send us top-of-the-line gear, gear expert Stephen Regenold reviews the items, and then we take them in the studio to photograph for the magazine.
That’s when the question arises: What do we do with all this sweet gear now?
The answer was simple: After getting the manufacturers’ OK, we decided to give it away to you, our readers.
The sleeping bag, which is rated to 20 degrees, retails for $179. Here’s what Regenold wrote about the Skinny Fish:
Bags from Big Agnes have gained fame for a system that mates sleeping bag and pad via an underside bag-length sleeve. Inflate your pad and insert it into the sleeve. The result: a bed-like platform that you cannot roll off. The Skinny Fish, a three-season bag, is good down to 20 degrees. It’s also a feat of sustainable design, incorporating 100 percent recycled-content insulation with a 100 percent recycled rip-stop nylon shell. Comfortable and eco-conscious.
We’re also throwing in the Big Agnes Diversion Insulated Air Core Recycled sleeping pad, worth $95. The pad’s dimensions are 20 by 72 by 2.5.
Total value of this giveaway: $274. Submit your entry below.
Sorry, the entry deadline has passed. The winner of the Big Agnes gear was Bowman Ching of the Santa Clara County Council.
Last week’s winner:
The winner of last Thursday’s giveaway is: Keith Welch of the Trapper Trails Council. I’ll be sending him the Mountain Hardwear Lamina sleeping bag. Congrats!
