Here an overview of some down bags to look at until someone makes a recommendation.

It will zip to any other Big Agnes bag with the same size zipper. Buy one left and one right zipper and all is well.

I own a Lost Ranger and my wife owns a Lulu. She has a thermarest ladies (the pink version of the orange ultra light) and I own an Agnes insulated air core. Both fit well.

When zipped together you can roll between bags easily unlike the Agnes mummy bags where the foot box is always separated.

We find the bags warm and comfortable. Both of us are tossers in our sleep and this was a big reason for choosing the BA bags.

Every BA bag has an integral pillow case you just need to add a fleece, inflatable pillow, etc.

I own the Mystic and use it for winter trips here in Tennessee. I am a big guy and typical bags won't begin to work with my 54 inch (135 cm) chest. I like the sleeve in the bottom which holds the pad in place - it prevents me from rolling off in the middle of the nice. The pillow is also especially appreciated.

The biggest downside side is its poorly stated weight. My Mystic, which lists at 2 lbs, 4 oz, actually weighs 2 lbs, 11 oz, a 19% error. Every BA bag I have looked at is comparably understated for weight. However, the only other companies I know of which will fit me are Montbell and Western Mountaineering, both of which are outside my price range.
