Western Mountaineering Alpinlite Sleeping Bag: 20 Degree Down


Product Details

Climbing or traversing technical pitches with a massive load dangling behind you is a bad way to go through life. Western Mountaineering created the Alpinlite 20-Degree Down Sleeping Bag for alpine climbers and weight-obsessed backpackers who demand top-shelf quality and bottom-line weight savings. Though it packs the warmth of 850-fill goose down and a full draft collar, the Alpinlite 20 weighs in at just over a pound.

Price : $ 524.95

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.
