Puma Super MF

rated 5 of 5 stars Super WARM and very light... I have used this bag down to -15° and have been completely warm and comfortable. I have no doubt it would be OK even down to -25°, and I am a VERY cold sleeper. I usually need a bag that is rated at least 20 deg warmer than claimed, but not with this bag. When it is not too windy I often just sleep in an open lean-to or under a tarp, and am just fine in the middle of winter. The MF shell offers excellent wind and water resistance, zipper works great, there is plenty… Full review

Puma GWS

rated 5 of 5 stars The Puma GWS lives up to the ratings and is high quality. The zipper works flawlessly and the cinch cord is easy to use. I slept out in -5 degrees with 25mph winds in a single person tent, warm all over. Remember a sleeping bag is only as good as its sleeping pad. In the winter you will get cold with any sleeping bag if you use a cheap sleeping pad. Full review

Antelope GWS

rated 4.5 of 5 stars This sleeping bag feels as if you are inside of a cloud. The bag's rating makes it a superior choice for winter camping. I love the way the mummy bag is designed. You have drawstrings by the neck and also by the hood. This lets you control warmth and air flow. The two zippers make it ideal for venting heat from the foot area if too warm and also unzipping the top zipper to cool off your torso. The bag keeps me super warm in cold weather. I found out that I can also use it as a quilt if I unzip it,… Full review

SummerLite

rated 5 of 5 stars Just spent 7 days on the JMT. Every night was at 10.5 to 11.5 thousand feet. Even at 23 degrees (with frost all over the place!) was quite cozy. I'm 5'9", 170 lbs, a side sleeper and, was quite comfortable with the fit.  I just can't say enough good things about this bag! Full review

SummerLite

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I put this bag to the test over 22 days in the High Sierra backcountry. It performed! Warm, comfortable, lightweight: I highly recommend it for your summer adventures. I really enjoy sleeping in this bag. I would definitely recommend it for a JMT thru hike or for anyone traveling light in the mountains in the summer. It would work well as a winter bag for many low-elevation regions, but is truly a summer only bag for those sleeping above tree line. Warmth: I used this bag down into the high 20s… Full review
