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

For those backcountry chefs whose appetites were whetted by the high-tech design of Sea to Summit Alloy cookware, but who love the simple durability of stainless steel, wait no longer.

The Sigma™ Series of Cook Pots brings technical features such as the Pivot-Lock™ handle (that locks securely into place during use and locks away for transportation), the silicone Lid Keep™ (to rest the lid on the side of your pot during cooking), and a grippy black base (for better heat absorption) to the realm of stainless steel cookware.

Made of marine-grade stainless steel, Sigma™  Cook Pots nest neatly with the Delta Light tableware to create camp kitchen sets for every occasion.

Can the Sigma™ Pots…?

  • Be washed in a dishwasher? Yes. They do not have an anodized finish (unlike the alloy Alpha™ Pots) which would be damaged by the caustic cleanser used in dishwashers.

  • Be used on an open fire? Only with care. The silicone-rubber grip could be damaged by the heat of a fire or contact with flames.

  • Be used with an induction stove? No. Induction stoves require pots made of a magnetic material (neither the Sigma™ or Alpha Pots will work).

Which pot should I choose?

Size Guide:

  • 1.2 liter: perfect for the solo backpacker
  • 1.9 liter: ideal for two people
  • 2.7 liter: designed for groups of two or three
  • 3.7 liter: groups of three to four

What matters most?

  • Weight: The Alpha Pot Series is our lightest range of cookware.
  • Packed Volume: The X-Pot Series collapses almost completely flat.
  • Durability: The Sigma Pot Series is our most durable cookware option.

FEATURES

  • Large internal radius makes the pot easy to clean
  • Each pot has a strainer lid for efficient draining
  • Marine-grade stainless steel for durability
  • Patent-pending Pivot-Lock handle with safety lock for secure and easy operation
  • Graded scale on the side of the pot for precise measurement
  • Grippy, heat-absorbing base for better stability on camping stoves
  • Stove Use: Domestic stoves have a much higher output than backpacking stoves. If Sigma™ Cookware is used with a home stove, keep the flame setting low, and take care that the pot does not boil dry
