The reviews here pretty much echo what I have heard when talking to backpackers about WM. There are people who are WM devotees, to whom WM can do no wrong, but few who give more than just an anecdotal evaluation. My evaluation: their products are well made and of great quality, but they are near the top in price also. Their sleeping bags are generally well designed, come in R/L zip, but not perfect. The hood design does not allow closing to a breathing hole in very cold temps. This is a significant feature when trying to avoid frostbite and it is reasonable to expect a better hood for the price. Pointing this out to customer service brings an abrupt end to the phone conversation. I prefer to purchase from a company that is looking for ways to improve their products, not resting on its laurels. A good company, but not great.
