More than 30 years ago, a couple northern California mountaineers had a vision of fire breathing dragons and exceptional sleeping bags. Western Mountaineering was created to craft sleeping bags that are made with the finest materials, the most meticulous design and a serious level of workmanship.
These two dudes who created Western Mountaineering weren't just two dudes building sleeping bags. Nowadays, Western Mountaineering is still an independent company with a real life "In the House" owner. All the Western Mountaineering sleeping bags and other down equipment are born in the USA, much like John Mellencamp. Western Mountaineering may not have little pink houses for you and me, but they do have a factory in San Jose where all their work is manufactured with pride and a little love.
Western Mountaineering sleeping bags are available in a variety of styles, warmth and colors (boo yah!). With 30 different models, I'm positive Western Mountaineering can fit you a sleeping bag perfect for your next adventure.
If you're looking for a maximum protection sleeping bag, check out the Western Mountaineering UltraLite 20 Degree Sleeping Bag. This bag definitely won't weigh you down on the trail, it's only one pound, 10 ounces. Yea, I know.
If you tend to get a little claustrophobic in your sleeping bag, peek at the Western Mountaineering SummerLite Sleeping Bag. This sleeping bag is perfect for a summer trip or that euro-trip you've been meaning to take. Lightweight and easy to carry, stuff it in your carry on for the hostel or your overnight bag for that slumber party you're planning for.
