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 Kodiak is definitely a staff favorite. A 0 Degree F Bag that weighs in at just under 3lbs and incorporates a Gore Windstopper Shell to give the end user an advantage on those huge temperature swings late season that cause condensation in your tent. Also a model that offers a little extra room in the shoulders, hips, and toe box for a more comfortable nights sleep as well as an EXTRA LONG option that will fit even our biggest hunters at 7′! We’ve always been big proponents of 0 degree sleeping bags as they are the most versatile in Alaska. From the sandy beaches of the Alaska Peninsula where giant brown bears call home, to the desolate side hills of Kodiak Island where finding a place to anchor your tent and get out of the 70+ MPH winds, the Kodiak is enough warmth to cover your basis without compromising on absolute compressibility and light weight.
