Topic - Sleeping bag for winter (ski-)mountaineering

setarkos on 18 Jun 2014
Hi everybody,

I am planning to get a winter sleeping bag. I want to use it mainly for base camp style ski mountaineering in the alps and in norway.
I am usually not very sensitive to cold. In spring I am the first in short sleeves and shorts on the bike. However I am quite slim, 70kg at 186cm, so don't have that many reserves insulation-wise.
I also sweat quite a lot, so condensation and getting the bag damp from the inside a major issues.
I always use a silk liner and I have a ME Ion bivy as well as an ultralight Pertex Endurance bivi.

Bags I am considering are:
- Rab Expedition 1000
- Western Mountaineering Lynx GWS (or even Puma GWS?)
- Mountain Equipment Iceline
- Mountain Hardwear Wraith (I have an offer for the 2011/12 model for 400)
Still wondering if I could get away with something lighter:
- ME Snowline SL
- Cumulus Teneqa 850
- PHD Hispar 800

Any experience you can share or advice you can offer is much appreciated :)


Not that important but noteworthy: I have a Cumulus Lite Line 300 (50g overfill) for summer alpine use. Ideally the winter bag should cover a temperature range such that there is no too big gap between the two.
