Founded 45 years ago by Gary Schaezlein and Jeff Jones, two northern California mountaineers, Western Mountaineering was created out of a  passion for the outdoors and a vision for excellence.  They built a company that continually strives to find the finest raw materials and keep with the tradition of meticulous gear construction design and unsurpassed workmanship. Today, they still remain a small independent company producing high quality down sleeping bags and apparel that will keep you warm and comfortable after years of use.  All Western Mountaineering sleeping bags are made in the San Jose CA factory under the owner's watchful eye.  A label on the inside of each sleeping bag has the two names of the seamstresses who worked on the bag written onto it to demonstrate the quality and care that was put into making each bag.

 Questions & Tips

Q: I need a lot of wiggle room in my sleeping bag, which bag should I choose?

Wide cut semi-rectangular bags are for people who dont worry about counting ounces but want lots of room to move around.  These bags are named after North American forest trees and some feature hoods. See the ____ bags and our other FAQs for more explanation on which bag is best for you!

Q: What does ethically sourced goose down mean?

The goose down used in Western Mountaineering sleeping bags and clothing is sourced from a mother goose farm in Eastern Europe.  This means geese dont live their life in confinement and the plumage is gathered from their nesting area.  This results in better quality down and ensures the welfare of the geese.
