User Review: Western Mountaineering Antelope Super MF
Fill: 750+ fill down
Temperature Rating: 5 F
Weight: 2 lbs. 11 oz.
Price Paid: $375
I've been hiking with this bag for the last 3 weeks with nightime temps. ranging from 10 f to 35 f. On the colder nights I was warm enough without wearing anything but my long underwear. With the open baffle construction it's possible to shift the down to the bottom so it's comfortable in the warmer temps. It's a bit wider than most mummys, a plus for some and a negative for others.
The bottom line, in my opinion, is that it's a superb bag in 15 to 30 weather. At 5 degrees f. you would get by o.k., but that's about it. As a cold sleeper myself, the antelope mf works better than expected. When comparing warmth to weight it's the best one I've found for these temps. If it was a bit narrower I think this bag would be hard to beat. As with all Western Mountaineering bags, the construction is superb. I'm 6' 1" and the reg. size fits perfect. No complaints with the hood fit, nor with the draft collar. The Micro Fiber has worked fantastically well with keeping the moisture away, but I question how well it will work once the DWR wears off.
