More than 30 years ago, two northern California mountaineers came together with a vision of uncompromised excellence. Their inspired dedication and persistence built the foundation that we stand on today and that vision is made reality. A dedicated search for the finest raw materials, meticulous design and unsurpassed workmanship have come together to provide you the highest quality sleeping bags available anywhere. With an offering of over 30 different models, Western Mountaineering can provide you a sleeping bag for any event, outing, or expedition requiring the lightest and warmest bags.
Our history is more than just two young men building sleeping bags. Today we still remain a small independent company. We are responsible for and in control of ourselves and hold true to our roots. We are a "hands on" company, with an "In the House" owner. Our products are driven by a personal commitment to excellence and they remain True, Fair, Honest and the Best. We make all of our sleeping bags in our factory in San Jose and are here to give our customers the quality they want with Made in USA pride.
Added together, it's all those little details that make a great sleeping bag and push Western Mountaineering over the top! For instance, all of our winter bags with the Full Down Collar are made with Interlocking Double Draft Tubes. When the bag is zipped these large stoutly filled tubes rest side by side rather than on top of each other. That way these Interlocking Draft Tubes retain their full loft without being compressed as the zipper closes. When a bag has a single draft tube it will hang from the top so that the zipper won't inadvertently be exposed while moving inside the bag. A Dacron stiffening tape is sewn alongside each zipper to prevent snags. Our Hook and Loop closures are backed with fabric to prevent fraying and are placed on non-integral parts of the bag like the drawcord casing.
