A warm bag is good, but a dry one is better.

Brand: Western Mountaineering

Model: Lynx GWS

What you get Uncommonly warm, light, and weather-resistant, this Western Mountaineering winter bag has premium 850-plus-fill down that provides 8.5 inches of loft. A Gore Windstopper shell shields tentless campers from the elements, thwarting rain and snow but still letting vapor escape.

Trail cred “This sleeping bag has been my safe zone on winter mountaineering trips for years,” Nash says. “It has the loftiest and most compressible down of any bag I’ve used and at just over 3 pounds, the warmth-to-weight ratio is awesome.”
