Western Mountaineering Bristlecone MF Sleeping Bag: -10 Degree Down


Product Details

Western Mountaineering's Bristlecone MF Sleeping Bag is a semi-rectangular bag built for subzero temperatures. Ideal for most winter endeavors, the Bristlecone'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 long-lasting weather protection. The MicroLite XP shell helps the down retain its lofty warmth in moisture-riddled environments. Western Mountaineering critically thought out the bag's design to the smallest details, making the Bristlecone a long-lasting and very versatile choice. A differential cut places more fabric at the lining to ensure maximum loft inside the bag, and continuous baffles allow you to shift the bag's down towards the top or bottom for more or less warmth. Hook-and-loop tabs let you pull the hood, draft tube, and draft collar farther or closer to you for customized coverage. Extra convenient features include dual zippers on the left or right side, a waterproofed stuff sack, and a storage sack with a large volume that helps the bag retain its loft overtime.

Price : $ 854.95

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.
