It can also be used as an overbag with another mummy to create an efficient cold weather system, and it offers open top and bottom sections with adjustable draw closures. There is no foot box for this sleeping bag due to its open design.

Obsessed with bag but wrong description!

I haven't used the bag yet but I'm already obsessed with it. I bought it to be a summer bag for when it's too warm for my WM TerraLite and as a liner/overbag for when I need a little extra warmth. It's packs so small and it's so light! Both bags plus my pillow fit in a 12L stuff sack. Backcountry.com's product info shows the regular length at 60 in. and the long at 65 in. This is incorrect! Based on the info, I ordered the long - I'm 5'8" and wanted it to come up past my shoulders. The long is actually 78" (from the drawstring at the foot to the top of the bag). I called customer service and explained the situation to Pat. He sent me a return authorization and expedited a regular bag out to me as a replacement. It measures 72" and it's perfect! One item to note is that the zipper only works from the outside of the bag - not a problem for me as I appreciate the trade-off to reduce weight. Like other reviewers, I love WM's bags - this is my 5th (my two daughters have the other 3). I have no need to spend my money on any other brand.

I love

I've used it several times

Western mountaineering is amazing. Their stuff is never on sale because it is worth the price tag. This bag packs down to literally nothing. Having a heavy backpack can ruin your trip, being cold at night can ruin your trip. Plan ahead and prepare by buying the right gear. I also have western mountaineering 15° Apache which I can layer my everlite summer bag with for added warmth. Having a nice light summer bag is also useful for winter camping. Gear with multiple use and purpose is always worth it. Plus lifetime warranty is a bonus.

Thank you so much Paul! Happy Trails! Leta Western Mountaineering Rep

Love it, very versatile.

I've used it several times

So light weight. Packs so small. Kept me warm in August at 12k feet in the high sierra when the temps got to low 40's. I plan to used this in the winter as a liner in my summer bag. These two bags combined are lighter than my winter bag. Also makes a great blanket when hanging out in camp. A good insulated ground pad is a must with this bag. Update: People might want to know, there is no zipper on the bottom. There is a pull string to close the bottom. Only a side zipper.

I have a WM Caribou MF and Apache MF both of which I've used for many years. Wanted something really light to take as emergency backup or for warmer months or sleeping in huts or to bring along when I'm pushing lower limits of Apache at 15 degrees. Really great little bag. Pretty warm. Used it down to mid 40's and I was perfectly fine. Only gripe - which is a bit of a stretch - is that I wish it had something on the non-opening end of the stuff sack to grab onto when pulling the bag out of said stuff sack. But did I mention how tiny this is when in the stuff sack? It's comically small. WM quality is really the best. My friend with whom I backpack frequently saw this new bag and commented "you only buy their stuff." Once you go WM you never go back. It's made domestically, the quality is unmatched, and it lasts forever. I've had the Caribou for a really long time - it's still in perfect shape and you'd be hard pressed to find anything even incrementally better. That's WM.

The EverLite was such a great addition to the Western line up. This bag can give me extra warmth for my 20 degree bag as a bag liner, or on those really warm summer nights, it's all I need. Having the quilt option is awesome as well, so I can open it up and share! :-) As always, Western quality is second to none, and the down they use is unbelievable. Finally, i LOVE that it is made is=n San Jose, CA! They started there 45 years ago, and have never left! Enjoy! Leta Western Mountaineering Rep

Could you tell me if the zipper is a double zipper - as in - you can unzip from top and bottom?


The Western Mountaineering site says this can be an over bag but this site calls it a liner. Is there a mistake? Does anyone know how it’s supposed to be used?
