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

We took the versatile and durable Lightweight Dry Sack and added a TPU window that offers excellent visibility. This is particularly useful for groups sharing common gear.

Made from a lightweight 70D waterproof, durable nylon fabric with a white interior lining in addition to the TPU window for greater visibility. Using the same hypalon non-wicking, roll-top closure as our other dry sacks, featuring a D-ring attachment point at the buckle and available in multiple colors for packing organization, these are ideal for backpacking, cycle touring, travel, ski touring and more.

ARE View DRY SACKS...?

  • Suitable for paddle sports? Absolutely. The tough nylon and TPU materials are perfectly suited to watersports use – be cautious around sharp objects or abrasive surfaces.

  • 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.

  • Better than regular Lightweight Dry Sacks? Especially when a group is sharing equipment, View Dry Sacks make finding a specific piece of gear an absolute breeze.

Technical Features

70D Waterproof Fabric - High Performance

Super tough, super pliable, high thread-count 70 Denier fabrics. The PU coating is highly waterproof (rated to 10,000mm hydrostatic head), and is colored bright white to make it easy to find your gear inside these bags.

Thermoplastic Urethane (TPU)

Thermoplastic Urethane (TPU) is a PVC-free material used in a number of functional areas within Sea to Summit products:

 

  1. As an airproof barrier in our Air-Sprung Cell™ and Self-Inflating mats. Here it is used in a liquid-extruded format – the TPU bonds to the face fabric for the highest possible level of reliability.
  2. As a waterproof barrier in our Accessory Guide Cases and Map Cases; and in several models of our Dry Sacks. Here it is used in a film format, where its superior flexibility (even in cold weather) and waterproofness are key.
  3. As a waterproof barrier in the Nylon Folding Bucket. This particular film is also food grade – ideal for water storage.
  4. As a transparent window in View Dry Sacks and Travelling Light products – allowing you (and TSA inspectors) to see the contents.
