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 Ultra-Sil Shopping Bag is a tiny reusable shopping bag that is made of the same high tear strength fabric we make our pack covers, compression sacks and stuff sacks of, so they're amazingly strong and durable. We've also made sure that the stress points have bar-tacked reinforced stitching. You can fill these shopping bags to capacity week in, week out and they will keep performing like new. And because the Ultra-Sil Shopping Bag is so compact and lightweight you can stash it anywhere - the tiny packed size clips easily onto a key ring with the attached carabiner or tucks in a purse or in a jacket pocket, so you never have it out of reach.
