HighLite

rated 4.5 of 5 stars I absolutely love my HighLite! I call it my cloud because that is what it feels like you are sleeping in :). I think the temperature rating is accurate — I sleep a little cold so I wear extra socks and clothes to bed but works well for my section hikes on the AT. It's amazingly light and packs down so small in a compression sack. When removed from the compression sack it regains all loft with a few shakes. I got the 5'6" size which works great for a petite woman. The HighLite is well made, in… Full review

VersaLite

rated 4 of 5 stars Well constructed, very light and compressible. The bag weighs close to nothing. If you're looking to save weight and have a bomber bag look no further. Western Mountaineering got it right here. I use this bag year round. When hot I just sleep on top of it. The loft is so sweet. You roll it out and it blows up like a balloon. I've had it for a few years and it keeps on ticking. I think I paid $450 for it, but I did the research, knew what I wanted and pulled the trigger. I'm writing this review because… Full review

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
