Western Mountaineering UltraLite 20°
EN Comfort Rating: 25°F
Weight: 1lb 13oz
Chosen For: Lightweight Quality & Warmth
Western Mountaineering makes some of the highest quality, lightest, and warmest sleeping bags we’ve ever tested. The UltraLite is one of their most popular designs and in our opinion it’s the highest quality sleeping bag on this list. Every detail on this bag is dialed in – exceptional materials, awesome no-snag zipper, draft collar with cinch cord, well shaped footbox and hood, differential cut fabric, continuous baffles, full length draft tube – you name it, the UltraLight has it, and the end result truly shines. The biggest downside with WM bags is their sizable price tag, but they can also last for decades if treated well, so for many hardcore adventurers, the investment is well worth it. Western Mountaineering’s Alpinlite (a wider version of the UltraLite) and Versalite (a slightly wider and warmer version of the UltraLite) are also both excellent choices.
