Western Mountaineering is a specialist down equipment manufacturer based in San Jose, California. The company began over 38 years ago, when two northern California mountaineers came together with a vision of uncompromised excellence.
The bags and jackets feature the highest quality European Goose Down (EU certified 900+), specially developed outer fabrics, highly advanced construction techniques, and are individually made in their factory in San Jose. This ensures that Western Mountaineering offer the lightest and warmest range of sleeping bags available.
