At just 490g, the SummerLite is the lightest sleeping bag Western Mountaineering make in a continuous baffle construction. Their goal in designing this bag was to make it as light as possible without eliminating key features or function. The result is a fully-baffled bag that is lightweight and features a full-length zip with insulated draft protection. The SummerLite is a dream come true for lightweight backpacking fanatics.

850 Fill Power
The top end of the market, offering exceptional warmth to weight ratios. 850 fill power is rare and expensive but gives expedition level performance or options for ultralight construction. The high loft down compresses well, keeping pack size down whilst standing up to the most extreme conditions
Rip Stop -
This is a lightweight nylon fabric with interwoven ripstop reinforcement threads in a crosshatch pattern. It is woven with a coarse, strong warp and filling yarns at intervals so that tears will not spread. Ripstop is used in construction of hot air balloons and yacht sails but in this case very effectively on outdoor clothing.
- Comes with it's own stuff sack so it packs small to take up less room in your pack and can be easily accessed in case of a downpour.
Stitched Through Construction
- Down garments and equipment constructed using a stitch through construction which helps keep down in place and reduce clumping. This construction is used mostly on mid to low weight down items.
