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

Our new First Aid Dry Sack is the perfect way to store medical supplies and keep them dry, visible and easily accessible. This is particularly useful in group situations.

Made from a lightweight 70D waterproof, durable nylon fabric with a white interior lining and a TPU window for visibility, the First Aid Dry Sack is printed with the international standard (ISO 7010) symbol for first aid kits. Using the same hypalon non-wicking, roll-top closure as our other dry sacks and featuring a D-ring attachment point at the buckle, it is available in three sizes for everything from day use to longer expeditions.

Does the First Aid Dry Sack…?

  • Useable as a regular dry sack? Absolutely. This makes it an especially valuable piece of emergency equipment – it could store a radio, GPS or firestarter materials in a critical situation.

  • Sold with first aid supplies? No. There are many great backcountry kits of first aid supplies on the market: this product is designed to keep those contents dry and easily accessible in your pack

  • Waterproof? The fabric is more than adequately waterproof (10,000 mm hydrostatic head) – just avoid submersion, as water can seep through the roll-top closure of any dry bag.

FEATURES

  • Quality materials – packable 70D nylon, fully taped seams and a TPU window which will not yellow or crack
  • Easy to find contents – white interior coating and large ‘window’ for greater interior visibility. Important when seconds count.
