Size Guide

Sleeping Bag Temperature Ratings Explained

The EN Rating scale is a scientific test to determine the warmth of a sleeping bag. The test produces a Lower rating (for male sleepers) and a Comfort rating (for female sleepers). Both are listed in the features table on the product page.

A unisex sleeping bag with a Lower limit of 14ºF means a man should be comfortable down to air temperatures of 14ºF. The same bag will also have a Comfort limit, in the realm of 27°F, so a woman would be comfortable down to an air temperature of 27ºF. These ratings require a sleeping mat with an R-Value appropriate for expected ground temperatures – without this, the sleeping bag itself is unlikely to keep the sleeper warm enough.

A variety of factors impact sleeping bag warmth - the above temperatures are merely guidelines, not guarantees. It’s important to think of a sleeping bag, an appropriately insulating sleeping pad and a liner as a sleep system. For example - if you plan on sleeping in nighttime air temperatures of 27ºF / -3°C, choose a bag with a gender-appropriate rating of 23°F / -5°C, plus a sleeping mat with an R-Value of 2.5 to 3, and consider a Reactor thermal liner.

Is the Grasshopper Gaiter…

  • Breathable? No. The coated polyester fabric does not allow moisture vapor (perspiration) to pass through. If you need breathability for more athletic pursuits, look at the Alpine or eVent Quagmire Gaiter.

  • Versatile? Absolutely. Gaiters are not just for winter sports – use them in wet, muddy weather when walking off-trail, wear them to help prevent ticks from getting into your socks. Keep a pair of Grasshopper Gaiters in your vehicle for excursions in inclement weather.

  • Fitted with a replaceable foot strap?  The gaiter is secured underfoot using nylon cord, which is easily replaceable if it wears through. Looking for a gaiter with a more rugged underfoot strap? Check out the eVent Quagmire Gaiter.
