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 23ºF means a man should be comfortable down to air temperatures of 23ºF. The same bag will also have a Comfort limit, in the realm of 32°F, so a woman would be comfortable down to an air temperature of 32ºF. 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.

Description

If you are new to outdoor recreation, or you only camp occasionally, the Trailhead™ synthetic sleeping bag is a great value-oriented option. However, the modest price tag doesn’t mean we’ve cut corners on comfort and versatility. Like all Sea to Summit synthetic sleeping bags, the Trailhead™ utilizes WaveLoft™ construction to allow the insulation to expand out into air-trapping curves for maximum warmth.

As the temperature rises, the full-length zipper (which curves around through the foot box) allows you to sequentially increase ventilation to the point where the sleeping bag can be opened flat and used as a quilt.

The tapered-rectangular cut of the Trailhead™ gives you plenty of room to move, regardless of your sleeping position.

Is this synthetic sleeping bag…?

  • Warm enough for colder weather camping or travel? Yes. The WaveLoft™ insulation construction maximizes loft and results in a temperature rating of 20°F. Frequent cold-weather campers might look to the Traverse™ sleeping bag series. In cool or cold conditions, make sure you have a higher R-Value sleeping mat like the Comfort Light Insulated.

  • Suitable for summer temperatures? Yes. A full-length side zipper (with two zipper sliders) that extends through the foot box can be opened for ventilation or to turn the Trailhead into a fully-flat comforter in really warm weather.

  • Able to be zipped to another sleeping bag? No. If you are looking to couple your sleeping bag to a Sea to Summit Unisex model, the Traverse ™ sleeping bag series would be your synthetic-insulated choice
