Delta SI V Seat

The Seat of Power. Two Seats, Actually

$29.95 – $39.95

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 14ºF means a man should be comfortable down to air temperatures of 14ºF. The same bag will also have a Comfort limit, in the realm of 27°F, so a woman would be comfortable down to an air temperature of 27ºF. 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

There are two options in the Delta Self-Inflating V Seat line: the Regular and the more luxurious Deluxe seat.

The Regular Seat is a rectangular, easy-to-pack companion which brings foam filled-comfort to any adventure. It's 1.5” thick PU foam provides much-needed cushioning for aching glutes at the end of a long day, compensates for cold uncomfortable stadium bleachers or softens the threadbare seats of a chicken bus in Central America. Tough, 75D polyester fabric on the base and upper surface means it will go the distance.

The Deluxe Seat is a fold-in-the-middle rectangle. Folded together, it provides a 2” thick super-comfortable seat pad. Unfolded, it provides a 1” thick sitting surface and 1” thick back cushioning as well. It uses the 75D polyester on the base and a luxurious knitted 30D polyester on the upper surface.

Does the Delta Self-Inflating V Seat...?

  • Take a long time to inflate/deflate? No. The high-airflow multi-function valve means that these seats inflate in a few moments, and can be rolled up quickly and easily.
  • Have a measured R-Value? No. The ASTM test standard does not apply to seats. However - the Regular Seat has the same level of insulation as the Camp Mat; the Deluxe Seat has the same level as two stacked Ultralight Self-Inflating Mats.
  • Work for backpacking? Yes. The 3.4oz weight of the Regular Seat makes it ideal for backpacking and day-hiking trips, especially when the ground is cold.
