- You get what you pay for.
- I've used my Summerlite on numerous trips and have been completely satisfied. The only negative thing I hear from other people about Western Mountaineering products is the price. Well yes they are expensive, but they are worth it. The bag is extremely high quality and the warmth to weight ratio is outstanding. I have spent numerous nights in this 32 degree bag when the temp. was that or a little lower and stayed toasty warm, while only wearing a light base layer and a pair of wool socks inside the bag. The continuous baffles they use allow you to shift the down easily from the bottom of the bag to the top to make it warmer and back again if the temp. is higher. Go to Western's website to get the details on this great feature. At 19 oz. and a packed size of 6x12 it is fantastic. Also the stiffeners along the full length zipper have made snagged and stuck zippers a thing of the past for me.
- well made ultralight summer sleeping bag, heavier than advertised
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!) .
- great bag
- excellent bag. I love it. Fits me great - at 5ft 10in and 150lbs. Go for it.
Questions & Answers
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!
