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


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


rated 5 of 5 stars This bag is high quality, very versatile, compresses to 6x6 inches with a compression sack. Very comfortable to sleep in, not like most other mummy bags. Can be used well below 30 degrees, or up to the 70's. Well-made and a long-term investment. I've had this bag for 14 years and have used it in a wide range of temps in tents, tarps, and shelters. I've been toasty down to 15 degrees F. and comfy up into the 70s. The bag's extra girth means you can wear fleece or whatever to extend the range for… Full review


rated 5 of 5 stars Great lightweight three-season bag. I bought this bag after taking a nice 30-degree bag on the John Muir Trail in mid-September. We hit some cold weather with nights dipping into the teens. To stay warm, I had to put on every piece of clothing I had and wear it in the sleeping bag. For about 4 oz of additional weight, the Western Mountaineering AlpinLite solved my problem. It is light, super high quality, and fits me great. I got the long version because I am 6'2". One problem I always have with… Full review


rated 4.5 of 5 stars This super-lightweight, amazingly compressible, down sleeping bag rated 35 degrees is my go-to bag for just about all of my backpacking trips. While rated at 35 degrees, I'll take it even if it's supposed to get down to 30, and I'll explain that below. I would not take this bag if conditions predicted temps colder than 30 and/or lots and lots of rain. Otherwise, this is a great bag! Since it's a sleeping bag, let's talk about warmth first. I HATE being cold. I like to sleep warm, and I tend to sleep… Full review
