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

The Quest™ women’s synthetic sleeping bag is a great value-oriented option for weekend warriors and new campers.

‘Entry level’ doesn’t mean we’ve cut corners on comfort and versatility. Like all Sea to Summit synthetic sleeping bags, the Quest™ 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 broader cut of the Quest™ gives women more room to move and allows a natural sleeping position.

Is this women's synthetic sleeping bag…?

  • Warm enough for cool weather camping or travel? Cool, but not cold. The WaveLoft™ insulation construction is designed to maximize loft and results in a temperature rating of 30°F. Cold-weather campers might look to the Venture™ 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 Quest 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 Venture™ sleeping bag series would be your synthetic-insulated choice.
