Arctic 5 Star

rated 5 of 5 stars i bought my 5 Star in January of 1977 and retired it this last spring. i have many stories to tell about that bag; it became more of a friend than a piece of equipment.  i have worked in bush camps all over the north and canadian arctic. i'm not sure what the coldest night's temperature actually was - the diesel fuel feeding the heater froze, as did a bottle of whiskey (well - half froze anyway.) (somewhere south of -60 i guess) suffice it to say that that was the most comfortable sleeping bag,… Full review

Arctic 3 Star

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Our family's association with the Woods Arctic sleeping bag began in the mid 20th century when my father was issued one by the Canadian government for his work with the Department of Indian and Northern Affairs.

Arctic 5 Star

Now, Woods has been around for over a century and has made some half decent gear in its day, in the form of heavy… Full review

Vacation Villa 2 Room Tent with Awning

rated 0.5 of 5 stars Roomy but impossible to replace parts. We have asked the Cie to replace the 2 broken parts.

Arctic 5 Star

rated 5 of 5 stars I am trying to find another one and any info on the company I can find. I bought mine at an estate sale years ago. It is canvas with an eiderdown fill and wool liner. I have camped off a horse with this bag from central Texas to the Colorado Rockies and it's one of the most utilitarian pieces of equipment I have ever owned, provided that weight is not a factor. If anyone has info to share I would love to hear it. Finding info on the Woods Company (like a website for crying out loud) has been, for… Full review
