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 Ascent™ down sleeping bag redefines what versatile means in a sleep system. Complex construction and high-quality down keep you warm when it’s cold outside, while the triple-zipper Free-Flow Zip™ system ensures you stay cool and ventilated when the weather warms.

Shaped to allow a natural sleeping position for comfort, the Ascent is light and compact enough to go everywhere your adventures may take you.

Is this down sleeping bag…?

  • Warm enough for cold-weather use? Yes. The high-lofting down, technical hood, oversized draft tubes, and draft collar make the Ascent 25°F and 15°F true 2.5 – 3 season bags. For colder weather, you might choose the Ascent 0°F model and pair it with a high R-Value sleeping mat like the Comfort Light Insulated.

  • Really cool in summer temperatures? Yes. The Free-Flow Zip system means separate zippers on your left and right side and in the foot box. Open them for ventilation or to turn the Ascent into a fully-flat comforter.

  • Able to be zipped to another sleeping bag? The main side zipper can be zipped to the Sea to Summit Women’s Altitude, Journey and Venture sleeping bags – Regular and Long bags have the same side zipper length.
