Description

A super-light, weather-resistant, three-season mountaineering bag.

Summer mountaineering trips into high alpine terrain bring a combination of moderate temps and increased moisture, two challenges easily met by the Western Mountaineering Antelope GWS Sleeping Bag. The Antelope’s WindStopper shell provides a highly weather-resistant shield for premium 850-fill goose down, and an insulated draft tube and collar seal out the chill on early or late-season outings.
  • Breathable, water-resistant, windproof WindStopper shell protects the down insulation from frost, condensation, spindrift, and howling winds
  • Ultra-premium 850-fill down insulation retains your body’s warmth and provides a higher warmth-to-weight ratio than any synthetic-fill insulation
  • Continuous baffles and a down-filled collar prevent energy-sucking drafts from zapping your slumber
  • Wider shoulder girth allows for extra layering in brutally cold environments
  • Western Mountaineering bags are made in the USA

Hands Down the Best Bag Ever.

  • Gender: Male
  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

I finally picked this up after suffering many a freezing night in low-quality inexpensive bags and eyeing my dad's Western Mountaineering bag with envy every morning.

My dad has had this bag for 15 years and it still looks like the day he bought it. As a testament to their timelessness, when I got mine and laid it next to his they were exactly the same, just a different color on the back. The down quality, stitching and fill are all the same, and rightfully so. They make a great bag and haven't lowered the quality of their materials over time like many of their competitors.

Keep it up, Western Mountaineering. You're a great American company.

is it possible to connect to sleeping bags...

is it possible to connect to sleeping bags together? With a left zip with a right zip for all Western Mount.aineering models?
If so, does it has to be the same models, and does it has to be the same lenght?
Thanks

All Western bags are compatible with all Western bags no matter the length or model.

A note on zipping two different lengths together: It's hard to describe but the shorter bag would end up lower than the bigger bag when zipped together. So zipping a 5'6" bag to a 6" bag, the shorter bag's hood will be 6" lower than the taller bag's hood...

The king of sleeping bags

I’ll preface this review with my cut and paste statement that I work as a backcountry backpacking guide in Yosemite National Park. Nearly all of the products I take the time to review have seen at least a half a season, if not more, of use... and I’m committed to not bothering to write a review until I feel like I’ve really gotten to know a product. I never thought I’d bother to write reviews, but I’ve recently decided that since I’ve spent so much time over these last many years reading reviews, and finding a tremendous amount of value in articulate and well-informed opinions, that I wanted to give back to the community. So, with that being said, here we go...

I own several sleeping bags, and two Western Mountaineering bags - a Versalite and an Antelope. The Versalite is a lighterweight cousin to the Antelope, and is more well-suited to three season camping and backpacking, which is what I spend most of my time doing. However, on the occasions I'm doing some snow camping, or temperatures are going to be consistently in the teens or lower, I'll bring the Antelope.

Being a Gore Windstopper bag it is, essentially, water-resistant. The stitching is the single source of water penetration, thus its not being marketed as 'waterproof' or even resistant. Since it is made of Gore Windstopper fabric it is quite difficult to compress the bag. A trick is to turn it inside out when packing it down into a stuff sack... as the inner liner is far more porous. Trying to compress it right side out can be an exercise in frustration.

Yes, Western bags (and most of their products) are expensive, but Western Mountaineering is the definitive example of 'you get what you pay for'. They stand behind their products like few companies do, and are built to a quality rarely seen nowadays.

dude......Banning!.....how many more times will you start your reviews with ".......my cut and paste." enough already. nobody cares that you work in Yosemite. your reviews are great. just tell us if the gear works.

Alex, yeah, I waffled on whether or not to include that cut and paste statement. I finally decided to because I have read reviews by rangers, guides, etc... and whenever they qualified their reviews with what they do I truly did feel like it lent the review some authenticity and weight. So... while it might be annoying... I'll stick with it. Maybe I'll just shorten it or something. Most people who've seen it before just read past it.

I'm glad you added your cut and paste statement. A review from someone who uses this stuff all the time and owns enough different types of gear to make informed comparisons definitely carries more weight than one from someone who may be as much of a newbie as I am. Thanks for the inside-out tip, too.
