IF you are one of those intrepid souls intending to climb
a 4000, 6000, or even an 8000-metre peak this spring

you might be looking for a suitable sleeping bag, among other gear.
Enter the TAIGA
® A50 ‘Wildcat’ With its superb design features
& materials, this bag is an absolute winner!
Here's why
  • Waterproof/breathable DryShell® outer fabric
  • Ample fill of 850+ fill power* European Goosedown
  • A splendid loft of 9 - 9.5'' (23-24 cm)
  • 64'' inner girth (torso), and a roomy foot section
  • Weighs only 3.48 lbs. (M), or 3.8 lbs. (L)
  • Rated to -35⁰C
See more details of 'Wildcat' A50 & A40 here.

Comparable bags from Western Mountaineering® (San Jose, CA) or Feathered Friends® (Seattle, WA) can cost about $1060-1190*, but the TAIGA® ‘Wildcat’
A50 (made in Vancouver, Canada) goes for the extremely reasonable Manufacturer-Direct price of Cdn.$ 665 (size M) & $695 (size L),
or approx. US $499 & $521.

Sure, you could go for an “El Cheapo”
like the China-made MEC® bag for $649* (size M). But, considering the lesser quality of down, that's actually not cheap at all! And the rating of -30⁰C seems to be rather optimistic for the modest loft of barely 8''.
Do you really want to settle for less, just for the sake of a few bucks?
