User Review: Western Mountaineering UltraLite
Source: bought it new
Price Paid: $400
The coldest 20-degree bag ever sold
- Lightweight...so is a sheet...and just about as warm
- Cold........DAMN cold
I've never been so disappointed in a product.....ANY product by ANY manufacturer. Previously had a nice warm 20 degree Blue Kazoo from North Face, however I washed it and it was never the same. I bought this 20 degree bag as a replacement, and in an effort to reduce weight.
Used it during a JMT thru-hike in mid-August 2012. Froze my ass off every night, all night, no matter what the elevation. How anyone could rate this bag as comfortable below 35 degrees, much less 20 degrees is beyond belief. Immediately after finishing the JMT, I returned to the retailer from whom I bought this POS and angrily demanded my money back, which, to their credit, they refunded in full...thanks a16.
