Peregrine
Our wider version of a -25° F expedition bag, the Peregrine wasn't designed with just larger people in mind. The ample inside girth also allows room for down clothing or for stowing gear and water bottles. Made for expedition use, the Peregrine's wider hood opening provides extra comfort during extended tent-bound conditions. The cut on the Peregrine gives an extra 3" across the shoulders, a spacious 4" across the hips and an extra inch in the footbox compared with the otherwise identical Ptarmigan. All this extra room only adds an extra four ounces in weight. On Himalayan peaks the Peregrine and Ptarmigan (used with down clothing) have kept climbers warm at 40 below, caught without a shelter at 28,000 feet. Professional guides and climbers who are sponsored by other bag manufacturers rely on our bags when the photo shoot ends and the climb begins.

Voted 5/5

I bought my FF Peregrine Long with 1 more oz. of 800 down in the mid 80's for $499.00. My wife thinks I'am nuts that even to this day, I have that bag on our bed over me except for summer nights; that is if my boy since he was a baby hasn't commandeer it along with my down pillow. On cold nights, I'll wake up to find she has pulled it over her. And yes, buy it ( buy 2 so you can enjoy yours ) not just for you, but because its wider and longer for your boots and water bottle on those really cold nights. I have 8 sleeping bag and this one is the "BOMB".
