Made In The USA – Western Mountaineering

More than 30 years ago, two northern California mountaineers came together with a vision of uncompromised excellence. Their inspired dedication and persistence built the foundation that they stand on today and that vision is made reality. A dedicated search for the finest raw materials, meticulous design and unsurpassed workmanship have come together to provide you the highest quality sleeping bags available anywhere. With an offering of over 30 different models, Western Mountaineering can provide you a sleeping bag for any event, outing, or expedition requiring the lightest and warmest bags. 

Their history is more than just two young men building sleeping bags. Today they still remain a small independent company. They are responsible for and in control of Western Mountaineering and hold true to their roots. They are a "hands on" company, with an "In the House" owner. Their products are driven by a personal commitment to excellence and they remain True, Fair, Honest and the Best. They make all of their sleeping bags in their factory in San Jose and are here to give their customers the quality they want with Made in USA pride.

Their website is filled with photos of wilderness pioneers exploring the Sierras during the early 1900's. Robert "Grandpa" Schaezlein shared his passion for the mountains with his son, Robert and grandson, Gary, who was inspired to make a lasting connection to the outdoors. Gary Schaezlein founded Western Mountaineering in 1970 because of the inspiration generated in the outings with his father and grandfather, who appears in the photos. His favorite places included "Little Yosemite Valley" (before Hetch Hetchy), Jack Main Canyon, the Cherry Creek drainage and Kibby Lake. They give special thanks to the Schaezlein family for the opportunity to use the spectacular historical photos which reveal the spirit of adventure that started it all.

Their web site also features the proper care and storage of Western Mountaineering sleeping bags and how the care will provide you with years of service. Your bag should always be placed on a waterproof ground cloth to keep dirt and other forest litter from soiling the outside shell. You can protect the inside of the bag from sweat and body oils by wearing a tee shirt, shorts and socks. This will do the same as sheets on a bed.

So if you are looking for the finest is mountaineering gear this is one web site and company to consider.
