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

This aptly named sleeping bag and down blanket is the traveler's best friend. Whether you are on a summer bike tour, or a hut trip, or couch surfing, or simply stuck at an airport or ferry terminal, the Traveller unpacks from an almost impossibly small compression sack to reveal a rectangular sleeping bag which can also unzip to form a quilt.

Two different fill weights of 750+ loft RDS-certified ULTRADRY Down™ are available: both models feature a drawcord foot box which cinches tight for warmth or opens for ventilation.

Can the Traveller Sleeping Bag & Blanket…?

  • Be used in cooler temperatures? Only with the addition of a thermal (Reactor) liner. The 30°F Traveller is rated for a male sleeper to 30 degrees Fahrenheit, and a Reactor would take this down to a couple of degrees below freezing. But realistically – there are much better choices for colder conditions.

  • Zip to another Traveller? Yes. All Travellers have left zippers; to couple two together simply turn one of the two inside out.

  • Be used as a sleeping bag liner? Yes. You could use the Traveller 30°F, or even the 50°F to boost the performance of a bag for cold-weather use. Adding one of these to a 20°F / -5°C bag makes more sense for most users than buying a “10°F / -15°C” bag for only occasional winter use.
