    Ultralight and ultra-comfortable.

    Western Mountaineering designed its TerraLite Sleeping Bag for comfortable sleeping whether you're camping or ultralight backpacking. Weighing in at only one pound and thirteen ounces, the TerraLite owes its lightweight quality to the 850+ fill premium goose down insulation that can keep you warm in the chilliest summer nights. The continuous baffle construction ensure the down doesn't isolate to one side, and the bag's comfort mummy shape includes a wider mid-section that allows you to sleep on your side comfortably.

    Western Mountaineering built the shell out of a sleek nylon ripstop for durability, and the taffeta lining remains plusher and softer against your skin. The TerraLite also features an insulated hood with an adjustable drawcord, a dual zipper design that either turns the bag into a wide comforter or attaches to other Western Mountaineering mummy bags, and an included stuff sack for your convenience.

    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I bought my first down bag something like 35 years ago. It was a Sierra Designs mummy bag with probably a zero degree temperature rating but I don't remember. It was great to have a down bag with all the advantages of warmth, light weight and compressibility but l just couldn't stand the confining shape of a mummy and you couldn't zip it without the draft tube material getting caught in the zipper. Since then I've had many other good quality bags but once I got serious about saving weight for backpacking, I researched all my choices and landed on the Terralite as the perfect weight, shape, temperature rating and quality. I've used my Terralite in Sequoia National Park and Rocky Mountain National Park on about ten trips now ranging from spring, summer and fall. I ended up buying a second one of opposite zipper side so I could make a double for when my wife is with me or for my 11 year old son to use. My son and I just returned from RMNP at the first of October where on our second day it started blowing snow with high winds from early evening till morning. We were camped at 10,600' and the temperature got into the low 20s. We ended up spending a lot of time in our Hyperlite Mountain Gear Ultramid 4 tent (which I also highly recommend!) laying in our bags and reading or sleeping as the weather raged outside. We were both very comfortable and warm with plenty of room to move around. I was a little worried before the trip because this was the latest season I'd be using these bags so I looked at some of the liners like Sea to Summit Reactor to add warmth but decided I didn't want to carry the extra weight. As it turned out we stayed plenty warm and I couldn't be happier with these bags. I use Thermarest Neoair Xtherm 25" wide pads to take advantage of the Terrallites width. Backcountry.com also gets five stars for their excellent service, staff and shipping.

    Graduation Gift

    • Familiarity: I gave it as a gift but have feedback to share

    I gave a pair of these to my brother and sis-in-law for a graduation gift. They took them on a trip to Iceland for two weeks and camped all along the way. Their feedback was that they were perfect and the best bags they have ever used.

    Awesome and better than I could dream

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    WM Terralite sleeping bag is awesome. I used it on two trips already and it's really amazing piece of gear. My impression may be biased a bit, because I have started to use it together with Exped's Downmat UL7 (which was waiting nearly half of year to go to mountains from the box), and it provides even more comfort. Sometimes I'm thinking about taking just a bag and old good foam mat to next trip, just to have impressions from sleeping bag change alone, but downmat is too comfortable to resist.

    Regarding sleeping bag, I like how roomy it is. This was one of the main reasons I wanted Terralite, and it really works cool. I'm side sleeper mainly, and it gives me chance to turn, curl or do whatever I want inside while sleeping without any limitations.

    At the same time, it's very warm. I hadn't chance to push limits with it yet, but in near freezing temperatures I had impression that it is much warmer than it's rated (based on my previous synthetic sleeping bag, which weights... wait, it was almost two times heavier - regular Terralite is 830g - measured! vs 1600g) Also, loft was surprising for me, I never saw so comfortable and soft sleeping bag before. Combined with downmat it feels like you are sleeping in a good (and I mean really good!) bed. To be honest, these trips were the first time when I had no wake-ups during whole night. Usually it was like "wake up - turn around - and sleep again" few times a night.

    Hood was comfortable to me, but I don't think I'm requiring guy in this area. Also, I really like option to unzip bottom part of the bag to make it almost rectangular blanket. I think I will be using this feature in the summer more often, to control temperature, because currently I plan to use it in warmer months as well and zipped it may be too warm.

    To compress it I use Granite Gear eVent Sil Compression Drysack - size XS/10L. Bag compresses well to quite small block. Sack which came with sleeping bag is "just ok". By the way, this sleeping bag ships uncompressed (at least mine was) which I believe is very good for down.

    Overall my impressions so far are that this became likely one of my favorite pieces of gear right from start, I do not see anything which could be considered as "cons". Even relatively high price is easily justified with high quality materials, awesome weight/warm ratio and unique unzip bottom feature. And, again, it's very, very roomy, which makes sleeping very comfortable.

    I feel that I need to say thanks to Kyle L. here, who was very helpful with his advices and assistance.

    Sleeping Bag PERFECTION!

      I've owned probably a dozen sleeping bags since I started doing outdoor trips some 30+ years ago. Throughout all those years of climbing, river rafting, backcountry skiing, mountain biking, backpacking and car camping trips, I've searched for the perfect sleeping bag.

      The Western Mountaineering TerraLite is IT!

      The TerraLite is lightweight, wide enough, highest quality materials and impeccably constructed. It's a freakin' dream to sleep in!

      Most bags come in a 30-15-0 degree temperature range. I find the 30 degree too cool and the 15 degree too warm for my intended all-around three season use. The TerraLite, at 25 degrees, nails it!

      The downside? The TerraLite is out of (price) range for most dirtbags. But Western Mountaineering is something to aspire to. If you can recycle enough cans, or sell that unused gear sitting in your closest, the TerraLite will NOT disappoint!

      Fantastic Bag!

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      If you are considering this bag, it is absolutely fantastic! After years of suffering with my old slumberjack qualofil bag that just could not keep me warm during July and August adventures to the High Unitas, I finally splurged and purchased the bag of my dreams! As on who hates mummy bags to begin with, I am totally in love with this one! The bag is wider in the midsection that any I have seen and at 6'2" and a side sleeper I can actually curly my knees up in this bag. I am so satisfied after this seasons trips that I will never regret the fact that this was way more money than I have ever spent on a sleeping bag before. Western Mountaineering ROCKS ! ! ! You simply will not be disappointed with this product! Only wish I could give it 10 stars!

      Perfect!

      • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

      I have used this about twenty days in the field since I purchased it from The Mountain Goat in Manchester, Vermont. I am a hair shorter than 6' and 175 lbs and I ordered the 6'6" terralite. First let me say that I absolutely love this bag. It's a roomy as it needs to be. Its big, but not too big. It's nice In the winter, you can easily take it down to below twenty with a down jacket inside (There is plenty of room.) I put layers in with me and do not feel any constriction. I've used it in my hammock as a blanket on warm nights and as a bag when it's chilly. I've been rained on lightly at night in a hammock with no tarp, and the bag was barely damp in the morning. It's been both in my tent as well, and I've found it to be a little long. The feet will get condensation from touching and I won't notice because I'm not touching the end. I only really notice it after I'm out if the bag. I've even used it as a blanket on my friends couch. The bag weighs under two pounds, but is no compromise in comfort.



      All that being said, at first I wasn't quite sold on it. The lack of a baffle combined with a zipper along the feet made me a little nervous, but remember this isn't your normal mummy bag. The shape of it still holds warmth in nicely. And YOU CAN BEND YOUR LEGS! Your feet don't have to stay at the bottom.



      Bottom line:

      I trusted western mountaineerings reputation for the highest quality sleeping bags and they surpassed my expectations. The fabric is sturdy despite its light weight, the stitching really is perfect, and the zipper won't snag. If you want a versatile and quality bag for any situation that weighs under two pounds, you won't be able to find something better.

      Perfect!

      I'm 5'8" and 160 lbs. I'm a little concerned that with the wide cut of this bag, I'd be swimming in the 6ft length and have trouble heating up all that volume. Anyone my size have experience with this bag?

      Hey Andrew - I Love the room, but that's me. If you are looking for more narrow, look at the 20 degree Ultralite or the 25 degree Sycamore. The Ultralite is way more narrow, the Sycamore is in between, but it is semi rec. Hope that helps!

      Western Mountaineering Rep

      I recently purchased this bag and have a question about smell: When I first bought it and tried it out at home, it didn't have any odour. After sleeping in it for 1 night with my clean base layers, I noticed the bag had a funky smell to it that was very noticeable. Can anyone speak to why this may happen? I've heard that it is the natural smell of down but that doesn't account for it not smelling initially... As I mentioned, I had clean base layers and wasn't sweating in the bag or anything like that. I've only seen one review in which someone had this same problem....

      Best Answer

      Thank you ! I spoke to someone and they said it could be "moisture from my natural body oils". They also said that other ppl have had the issue and after washing the bag, it was mitigated. If I go that route, what is the optimal way of machine washing this particular bag?

      THANKS!

      Daniel, that's exactly what the folks from Western Mountaineering said: "The down can have an odor, which is more noticeable when it becomes wet. Depending on humidity levels wherever the bag is used, a bag could seem to not have any odor initially and then if it is used again with a change in humidity levels or environmental conditions(i.e. sleeping in an enclosed room, a cabin with windows shut, or a zipped up tent vs sleeping out in open air plus taking into consideration variations in humidity levels on any given night where the bag is being used) the same user might notice an odor.

      There are many factors that can play a role, but a combination of closed quarters and higher humidity levels usually will lead to more noticeable odor from the insulation. If they are concerned and it continues to be a problem, they can certainly send it back to us for evaluation."



      Nikwax makes a product called Down Wash that I would recommend. And please use front loading washers and large dryers (with a tennis ball!) only.



      Enjoy!

      How long before you get 6ft left or right again?

      Will you be offering options with left/right zipper? I'm assuming that two of these bags can be zipped together?

      Getting anymore of these in 6ft length anytime soon?
