Western Mountaineering - Alpinlite

Roomy, warm, and packed with features, Western Mountaineering's AlpinLite is a wider version of the ever-popular UltraLite. If your summer bike tour or backpacking trip is going to take you through different climates, the AlpinLite is the way to go; its continuous baffles allow you to shift the down on top of you in cold temps, or underneath you when the weather warms up. With a generous 64 inch shoulder girth and 5 inches of high-lofting 850+ down, this comfortable bag is good to 20° F. The full down collar helps to seal in heat around your neck without adding excess bulk, and the full length draft tube seals in heat along the zipper. The total weight of this very compressible bag is right around 2 lbs, so you can take the AlpinLite anywhere.
Like all of Western Mountaineering's bags, the AlpinLite is made by hand in San Jose, California. Their down is sourced from free-range mother geese who are never live-plucked or force-fed.

Questions & Answers

Dear Backcountry Gear,

I have a few questions:
1. Is the hood calculated in the length of the sleeping bag?
2. Is the sleeping bag water resistant? How much moisture can the sleeping bag resist?
3. Can the temperature rating of 20 degrees be classified as comfort, maximum or extreme?
4. I'm 5'9'' tall and I weigh 187 pounds, should I buy size "Regular" or "Extra long"?

Thank you in advance!

Hi, i was just curious if when the bag says right or left zip, that is from inside the bag, or looking at the bag. Thanks!

All bags are filled with 850+ down, for ultra-warm and ultralite comfort. A great all around bag is the Western Ultalite 20 degree bag weighing just 1 lbs. 13 oz.  Or for extreme cold the Bison is rated to -40 and weighs under 5 pounds. If a synthetic bag is more your style, Backcountry Gear has The North Face synthetic-filled sleeping bags in summer, two-season, three-season, and even sub-zero options. The Cat's Meow is a versatile, go-to mountaineering bag, in a men's design or women's design. Zip up warm and stay that way.



Crank your comfort to 11 with Backcountry Gear's selection of sleep accessories. Therm-a-Rest makes a variety of practical, easy to use outdoor products, like ultralight air pillows and sleeping bag covers, not to mention an extensive line of sleeping pads with thermal reflective barriers to maintain your warmth while sleeping on the ground.
