Description
Western Mountaineering's HighLite is designed to be the lightest, most compressible bag you can find. Everything about this bag is constructed with weight in mind, from its 0.9-oz ExtremeLite™ fabric to the half-length zipper. A popular choice among thru-hikers and ultralight fanatics, the HighLite's efficient narrow mummy cut means that the bag heats up faster and more heat is retained compared to wider sleeping bags. At only 16 ounces, no other bag is as light, as warm, as well-made or as good-looking as the HighLite.
Like all of Western Mountaineering's bags, the HighLite is made by hand in San Jose, California.

Backcountry Gear gets it: camping and hiking gear should help get you out into nature while not weighing you down with what it takes to get there.

It's about efficiency and versatility, minimum weight for maximum benefit. Backcountry Gear, where minimalism meets productivity.


Backcountry Gear knows lightweight backpacking is all about keeping things compact and sensible. Hiking gear should be sturdy, reliable, and lightweight. Camping tents should be constructed of lightweight, durable materials, and be easy to assemble. Kitchen kits should be featherlight and easy to clean. Trekking poles should keep you balanced.
