Bison GWS

rated 5 of 5 stars Incredible quality in materials and craftsmanship. Packs down very small and is very lightweight (under 5 lbs) for its temp rating of -40F. I have no doubt it will live up to its reputation when put to the test. ***FEB. 3, 2015 UPDATE after field testing the Western Mountaineering Bison GWS****** So last night the temps got down to 23F here in Atlanta, so I set up my tent in the back yard and slept in the WM Bison GWS. WOW!!!  AWESOME BAG!!!! I have added a few photos to show the loft of the bag… Full review

Apache MF

rated 5 of 5 stars This bag is amazing! I just spent New Years, Jan 1, 2015, in the Utah desert. It got down to 12°F in my Springbar. This bag didn't just keep me not cold, but with the draft collar and the hood all the way cinched I stayed toasty warm. This bag will definitely put any other three-season bag to shame. I spent four nights in this bag in the Utah desert on New Year's Eve in freezing cold temperatures and stayed completely and totally warm at night in the sleeping bag. The draft collar works amazing… Full review

MegaLite

rated 5 of 5 stars Warm and comfy to 30°, survival rating to much lower. I thru hiked the AT with this bag, starting in April and ending in October. I saw snow, ice, hail, frost, to temperatures of 110°. When it was cold I only recall being chilly once, and it was getting caught at high altitude in the Smokies in a storm. When it was hot the bag was used as a pillow or pad top, but even in the hot humid Appalachian summers it gets chilly sometimes in those hollows and sometimes I would zip it up in summer. The only… Full review

MegaLite

rated 5 of 5 stars This larger 3-season down bag can become a 4-season bag. The main selling point for this bag is its larger girth for expanding the comfort range using insulated sleeping clothes or for people with wider shoulders and chest. As the Megalite comes from WM it has no left side baffle. This is to allow one to shake down to the top or bottom depending on expected night temperatures. I purchased the Megalite after being very disappointed with the lack of loft in a Mountain Hardwear Phantom 32 bag. I… Full review

VersaLite

rated 5 of 5 stars Warm, light, and super comfy... WM does it right! This is my second WM bag (my first was a summer-oriented Megalite, that I like very much). I needed a bag with some extra warmth for colder conditions. I purchased the Versalite and used it for the first time during a week long fall hike around the Tetons. Weather forecast was iffy (trip was squeezed between two storm fronts). In the end, I had everything, rain, sun, snow, and wind, so was glad I had the beefier bag! Compared to the Megalite, the… Full review
