Description

Meticulous craftsmanship and thoughtful design make all the difference.

Sporting a full draft collar, premium 850-fill goose down, and highly breathable shell fabric, the astonishingly light Western Mountaineering Versalite 10-Degree Down Bag is ideal for three-season trekking, kayaking, and bike-touring. Celery-eating, high-alpine climbers looking to shed a few pounds will appreciate its unmatched warmth-to-weight ratio, and mountaineers looking to push the limits of their shoulder-season gear can glean a bit more insulation from layers thanks to a wider shoulder circumference.

  • Highly breathable, water-resistant Pertex shell protects the down insulation from frost, condensation, and spindrift
  • Ultra-premium 850-fill down insulation retains your body’s warmth and provides a higher warmth-to-weight ratio than any synthetic-fill insulation
  • Interlocking draft tubes 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

Whole JMT with this awesome bag

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

the good - silly light, so comfy, fitted 5'6'' size for short people like me.

the bad - being on the warm side for a 10deg, this bag can be too warm for some in the summer months. It's also not quite warm enough for a full-on winter bag.

the ugly - there is no ugly with the Versalite

Great for Women

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

This bag works great for women and keeps me nice and warm. It's got plenty of room in the hip and knee area so I can wiggle around. It tightens down nicely around my head and shoulders when it gets cold blocking all air from getting in. I'm 5'4" and got the short size.

Good enough for Kili!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

If it's good enough for Kili, it's good enough for me! It was 7 degrees at the summit, but warm and toasty the night before. Also very comfortable. We used liners that may have added a few degrees, but my old sleeping bag is definitely going to Goodwill now!

Hello from Spain. After being focused on...

Hello from Spain. After being focused on a couple of european brands, I have learned bout WM bags. Looks like this is a serious option as far as Weight to warmth ratio is concerned and also in terms of quality and I am really thinking of buying it on my next trip to the US. The only concern being the outer shell, as I live in an island and high moisture is always present at night, which shows on the sleeping bag in the morning... Any comments about it? Thanks.

Hey Jaime,
This bag uses a Pertex shell material, which is highly water resistant even though there is no membrane on the shell material. Pertex essentially uses a thinner synthetic fiber and are able to get a tighter weave which allows the bag to repel moisture while staying breathable. I've seen the WM sales rep pour a glass of water onto their bags and try to rub it into the shell. When turned over the water just ran off the side of the bag.

Amazing and truly versatile

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

What's not to like about this bag? Light, versatile, warm, and packs small! The Pertex Quantum fabric used as the face fabric allows the reduction of weight and packed volume in this 2 pound dreambag. The zipper never snags on me!

I actually wish Western Mountaineering would make the same spec'ed bag in Microfiber fabric. It would probably only weigh one or two ounces more, but the amazing water resistant properties of the MF fabric are worth the upgrade over Pertex Quantum. You won't regret this purchase if you're looking for a lifetime investment in a light 3-season bag.

Western Mountaineering does it again!!!

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

This is possibly the best sleeping bag ever. I have used it many many times in weather ranging from 30 degrees to 5 degrees and have never been cold and I am a very cold sleeper. In addition to the warmth the bag is also quite light so I have never had weight issues with it. It also fits nice and small into a stuff sack so it doesn't take up a lot of room

WM is also a fantastic company. My Fiance ripped his sleeping bag and they fixed it so well you can hardly tell where the rip was. Sometimes we wonder if they just sent him a new bag.

In Love With This Bag

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

I've always had issues staying warm while camping, even on early summer trips. I have a 30 degree synthetic bag that did not keep me warm in June OR October. So, when I decided to go backpacking in November in the Red River Gorge I knew I needed a better bag. This one is perfect. It fits in the bottom of my pack and kept me warm and toasty all night long. I highly recommend it.

I'm 5'6 155 lbs. What size should I get?...

I'm 5'6 155 lbs. What size should I get? thanks!

Hey,
I would go with the 6' length- the 5'6" would work but won't give you as much room to move around. The bit of extra length on the 6' bag will let you pull it all the way up around your face.

Greatest Bag Ever

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

I took this bag on a 4 day trip in November with night temps into the 30's. It fit perfectly into the bottom of my backpack and kept me all warm and cozy at night (I only wore shorts/tshirt/no socks to bed). I am extremely happy with my purchase.

I'm 6ft 1" - would I best with a long?

Responded on

The Regular and the long in this model are the same length, although the width and shoulder width are an inch or so larger in the long. I own a Western Mountaineering bag and I got the long because i enjoy a little breathing room in my bags. I'm 6'2 by the way.

Best Answer Responded on

Ryan, that is incorrect, the regular is 6' and the long is 6'6", so they are not the same length. Backcountry.com has the specs listed wrong. (I'll notify them.)

To the OP, I would suggest going with the long. Being a little over 6' means you will be stretching the bag out too much, and will compress some of the insulation around the head and feet, which is not ideal. The long version is what you need.

Responded on

voting for long with chad. you don't want to finish a long day of backpacking and not be able to stretch your legs. get the long and wear socks if your feet get chilly.

Exceptional bag

  • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

Long term review. I purchased my Versalite in 2012 and have taken it on two extended trips in the Bucks Lake Wilderness and the Carsen-Iceberg Wderness areas in the Sierra as well as some other shorter excursions. Beyond the meticulous construction and high-grade materials already expounded upon by others, this bag just flat impresses with its warmth, loft and lightness. The Versalite was comfortable, dependable and rapidly became thoughtless to me as a user. I worried about other aspects of my trip, my companions, equipment, etc. What equipment manufacturers can boast that? We're so good... we fade into the background of "got that". 'nuff said.

Best bag, period.

  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

The warmth to weight is amazing! Western Mountaineering's quality is unmatched by any other bag manufacturer. I have used this bag on several occasions and it has performed above and beyond my expectations every time. I have the 6' bag (I am 5'11") and it was like it was made for me. The zipper never snags and the draft collar keeps all of my heat in the bag where it should be. The temp rating is the most conservative I have seen on any bag. Really a fantastic bag and worth the price!

Love it!

Had another brand of sleeping bag. It was a 30 degree bag, and after an extremely miserable night at 40 degrees, I decided it was time for a major upgrade. Enter the Versalite. Actually two. One for me, and one for him. We're both cold sleepers, and the Versalite's have been lifesavers. Been using them for 3 years now, about 40 nights a year, and they still look and perform like new. If we ever need new bags, Western Mountaineering will be our first choice. I am 5'4" and he is 5'8". We both went with the regular length bags. I'm sure I could have gone with the shorter bag, but I just put my jacket down at the foot to take up the extra space, and then the jacket is nice and warm in the morning when I put it on.

Hello -- I am a 5ft 5in woman. Should I...

Hello -- I am a 5ft 5in woman. Should I get the 5ft 6in bag or go up to the 6ft? I know it's important to have space in your bag especially in colder temperatures. I will be using the bag in mostly colder temps, around 20 and below. Any advice? Thanks!

Best Answer Responded on

You'll be fine with the 5'6" bag. They are sized to allow a bit of extra room, so you should have all the space you need at 5'5".

Hi. I am writing from Japan. I understand...

Hi. I am writing from Japan. I understand you have some ristriction to ship Western Mountaineering products to Japan in your policy. Actually I plan to visit San Francisco, CA during March 23 and 27. Is it possible to ship your marchandise to the Hotel (I wll stay at Hotel NIKKO San Franisco), if I settle my payment? I also want to know the size which fits me best. I am 5ft and 8 in. tall. I appreciate it if you respond my question ASAP. Thank you all.

Best Answer Responded on

Tetsuya,

For your height, you'll want the Regular size.

If BC is unable to ship the bag to your hotel, I live about 60 miles north of SF. I'm not certain if your itinerary allows for the time to pick it up it or not, but I would be happy to allow you to have your sleeping bag delivered to my brother's house in Sausalito, just on the other side of the Golden Gate Bridge from SF. If this becomes necessary, please don't hesitate to contact me with your email address via a reply to my answer on this page.

Love at First Night

  • Gender: Female

The most luxurious sleep of any night spent ever in my life, indoors or out.

light and warm

  • Gender: Female
  • Familiarity: I've used it several times

It is the lightest thing I've ever slept in and it is wonderful. But I was cold around 30F (with lightweight clothes) so when its freezing, I'll sleep with my warm clothes on. It is very well made and I love it! Recommended.

Responded on

Hi Yuki-

That's too bad you were cold at 30F, especially since this is rated for down to 10F. Something you might consider is looking at how much room you had in the footbox and around your shoulders. With any bag, especially down, it's most effective when there's minimal wiggle room. Hope you stay warmer next time!

coffee walker on Versalite 10 degree bag

Most excellent bag, just spent the last 5 chilly days using this bag, great loft, light weight and I stayed warm whereas my hiking buddy was chilly in his.

COZY!

I chose this bag after returning another down bag that was quite disappointing. Why Western Mountaineering? Well, my husband has a 5 degree Antelope, to which I have "stolen" on a couple of cold nights and the reputation for great products that WM holds. Plus, after dealing with a foreign gear company (to MUCH frustration), I decided to bring it back home, going for "Made in the USA." Now, I am a TERRIBLY cold sleeper. I tend to bring clothes for the Arctic when it's just 30 degrees outside. I always cold camp in my tent as well. With these two components in mind, I decided to go with the Versilite for cost as well as weight. The first trip was a 6 day in the Yellowstone backcountry. While it was unseasonably warm, it did get to the low 30's to 40's at night. I was warm, starting the nights with the bag unzipped and bringing the zipper up as the temp dropped. My neck was warm with the nice collar. The loft was wonderful (and I made sure not to over-cinch my compression bag). Although WM tends to be more money, it's well worth it!

COZY!
Responded on

Update....found out that LO AND BEHOLD, although my bag is a reg length and my husbands is longer, our bags zip together perfectly! Of course, I have a left zip and he has a right but it's perfect on a cold night where he sleeps hot and I'm always cold :-)

Wow!!!

I've been through a lot of bags over the years, so far this is the best bag for the bucks, tons of loft and WOW does it compress small for what temp the bag is rated for, I bought this bag to replace a Softie Merlin 3, it was a good bag but it was time for something to play out in the cold. I can hardly believe that the Versalite packs just as small, if not smaller. I'm looking forward to using it this winter.
