User Review: Western Mountaineering Antelope Super MF (MicroFibre)
Fill: 750 fill down
Temperature Rating: 5 F
Weight: 2lbs. 13 oz.
Price Paid: $375 US
Probably the only piece of gear I ever bought that wasn't on sale. Probably my favorite piece of gear and maybe the best value. Workmanship is the best I've found. Polyester Microfiber shell sheds condensation well. Obviously not as moister resistant as Dryloft but it is quieter, more comfortable, and much better than normal nylon taffeta. Shell is also reasonably tough and abrasion resistent. The bag lofts like a cloud and fits extremely well. Enough girth to move but snug enough to warm efficiently.
Very versatile bag for high alpine summer to late fall. At the end of a long day hiking, I can't wait to experience the feel of the 750 fill down and soft lining. Super fitting hood and anti-snag zippering. It just doesn't get any better than this. Add a silk liner to keep the bag clean and add a few degrees of warmth or if its too warm, leave the bag unzipped top or bottom to ventilate and use liner as a sheet. Technology may change and improve over time but this bag is really going to be tough to improve on.
