Western Mountaineering Alder MF Sleeping Bag: 25 Degree Down


Product Details

Lay Western Mountaineering's Alder MF 25 Degree Down Sleeping Bag down on the meadows and stargaze until you're ready for bed. Ideal from the end of spring until the beginning of autumn, the Alder's 850+ down insulation has the loftiest fill rating, resulting in the highest warmth to weight ratio available on the market. Unlike most water-resistant shells, Western Mountaineering's Microlite XP fabric offers weather protection that lasts. The MicroLite XP shell helps the down retain its lofty warmth when the meadow gets moist. Continuous baffles let you shift the down towards the top or bottom for more or less warmth. A semi-rectangular shape offers more space and comfort for camping. There's a full-length zipper on either the right or left side, and you can zip it around the foot to convert the bag into a blanket for versatility. The zipper also zips into other sleeping bags so you can cuddle with other campers. Western Mountaineering included a waterproof stuff sack and a storage sack with a large volume that helps the bag retain its loft overtime.

Price : $ 434.95

Three Season Sleeping Bags Checklist

Down vs. Synthetic. The age-old question. Down bags pack down tighter and are a few ounces lighter. On the negative side, they are useless when wet, often take forever to dry (and many can't be tossed into a dryer), and tend to be more expensive.
Heading Out in Wet Weather? Then get a synthetic sleeping bag...period. This way, if your bag gets wet, you won't have a useless sleeping bag for the rest of your trip.
Float Camping? Again...get a synthetic bag. Be a bummer to have your bag end up in the water and become useless for the rest of your float trip.
Where Ounces and Packability Matter. Then go with a goose down bag. This is especially true if you are a bike camper, climber or camp in the desert.
