    • I am a 5'6" male. Maybe 5'7" after chiropractic visit... Will the short fit me? Or should i go with regular?
    • Thanks for the question. The 5'6" bag is made to fit a person up to 5'6" tall, so you should be fine with the short. I'm 6'1" and I have regular and long length bags. I find I prefer my 6' bag because my feet don't seem to get as cold. Lots of folks opt for the longer bag when they're between sizes just so they have the extra room to sink down into the bag. For you, it would come down to preference. I suggest trying out a short bag in your local gear shop to get an idea of the dimensions. Thanks!

    • I was wondering if you can zip 2 sleeping bags together to make one big sleeping bag for two people
    • Thank you for the question. Yes, you can zip it to another bag to make a "double" bag. Since the SummerLite has a hood, you will need one right zip and one left zip bag.

      Any of Western's "Extremelite Series" bag (bags that have "lite" in the name) can be zipped together, so if one of you sleeps cold, you can pair mismatched bags for the perfect temperature. Thanks!

    • Can you zip two bags of different sizes together?
    • Thank you for the question. Yes, you can zip two bags together. If they're different lengths you'll end up with an extra six inches of zipper at the top, which can be less than ideal (it comes down to preference). Also, you will need one in "Left Zip" and the other in "Right Zip". Otherwise one bag will be upside down. Thanks!

well made ultralight summer sleeping bag, heavier than advertised Review by Henriette B
Quality

NOTE: bag was 25g heavier than advertised on Western Mountaineering's website. Disappointing for ultralight folk!

Bag looks very well made and should be warm enough for summer trips. Look forward to some speed missions and also longer summer trips in the hills this season!

It's nice to have a traditional shaped bag rather than a quilt, as I turn a lot at nights (so a zip and draught tube are better for me than a quilt). I also lose a lot of heat through my head (hood is good!) .

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.
