User Review: Western Mountaineering UltraLite
Fill: 850 down
Temperature Rating: 32
Weight: 1 15
Price Paid: $350
I have a lot of bags...
This is the worst one.
All my bags the temperature rating tends to be conservative, but in this WM bag the rating is hyped.
I am a very warm sleeper, I can do well in most bags even though the temperature has dropped below its recommended use.
Not with WM Ultralight... For the first time I was freezing in a bag that was rated at about the temperature I was in.
WM attempts to create a lighter bag by making the bag smaller and less down filled then other bags. Their specs don't seem to match the actual construction of the bag. I found this bag to be very tight around the shoulders and very cold.
I have bags by Mountain Hardwear, Marmot, Campmor and Western Mountaineering. Either the other manufacturers are very conservative about their own product specs OR Western Mountaineering is way TOO generous on their own specs.
Above all I feel their products are over priced considering these flaws. And I am at a total lose why others gave them a perfect score. Why?
