Western Mountaineering is THE pioneer in U.S.A made down sleeping bags. This year, we are happy to introduce Western Mountaineering to our product selection. One of the few U.S. made outdoor products left on the market, they have never compromised on quality and workmanship for over 30 years. Their dedication to produce the most advanced, technical sleeping bags is why mountaineers from all over the world who set out in to the wilderness trust their lives with their products. Here at Barney’s, being the locally owned “Sheep Shop”, we are constantly looking for not only the lightest weight and functional products, but quality is at the top our list. One BIG factor that is worth noting, is that Western Mountaineering builds their bags wider than your typical “Mummy” cut. We are constantly battling being overcrowded in our bags, and not many companies have addressed this problem like WM. There is nothing like a good nights sleep, and a quality down bag can often times be the difference. The Alpinlite is in our Sheep Hunter category. A 20 Degree F bag that comes in at just under 2lbs, and packs away the size of a softball, giving our Mountain hunters some extra space for a few more days worth of food! Whether you drew that tag of a lifetime and are headed in to the infamous Chugach Range in search of pure mass, or headed deep in to the Brooks Range in August with everything on your back to battle the blistering 80 degree temperatures, the Alpinlite gives you enough security for whatever nature throws at you. Regardless if every vent in your tent is wide open to catch every ounce of breeze there is, or your poles are bending at the joints because an early snow hit above the Arctic Circle, this bag has you covered!
