When the Sierras or the Rockies are your usual destinations and you need the maximum protection from your 3-season bag, leave nothing to chance with our Antelope Super. Its roomy 62" shoulder girth allows for comfort and the 7" loft from 26 ounces of high lofting down provides warmth to 5°. The security of this bag is sealed with a full 3-Dimensional down filled Super Collar and a robust draft tube.

These Antelopes take over in early spring and last till late fall. At a total weight of 2 lbs. 7 oz., they are the most substantial 3-season bag available.

Super MF

While extremely weather resistant the MicroLite XP™ shell retains maximum breathability and its down filled collar is sewn with MicroLite XP™ fabric.

Super DL

Our DryLoft™ 830 fabric is the lightest weight and most compressible DryLoft™ available. It is the most water resistant-breathable fabric for sleeping bags. This bag has the collar and draft tube completely made with DryLoft™ fabric to create an impenetrable seal.

Simply put, Western Mountaineering down bags are the best on the market, together with Feathered Friends. My girlfriend and I own two of these bags: Antelope SMF and SDL. One word to describe them, INCREDIBLE! Very warm, compress relatively well, very light for their temperature rating, good (SMF) to great (SDL) water resistance. The manufacturerer puts so much down inside of these bags, it feels that they are inflated!

I used SDL in 0F weather in the winter Sierras without any problem. They also work well for summer bivy's at higher elevations.

The only downside (no pun intended:) is the price. These bags are not cheap but you get what you paid for. I got both of our bags on sale, at 40% and 20% off. Definitely spend some time looking around, and if you are lucky, you will find one of these beauties with a hefty discount.

If you can afford it, buy it and you will never look back. I promise!
