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 Traverse™ transitions easily into warmer weather with a full-length left-side zipper, a half-length right-side zipper, and a food box zipper provide that unparalleled ventilation or allow the Traverse to be opened completely flat like a comforter. In colder weather, the unique WaveLoft™ construction allows the Thermolite® insulation to expand out into air-trapping curves for maximum warmth.

Whatever the season, the wider cut of the Traverse gives you room to move, no matter what position you sleep in.

Is this synthetic sleeping bag…?

  • Warm enough for cool weather camping or travel? Yes. The Thermolite® insulation with WaveLoft™ construction is designed to keep you warm when the temperature drops. For cold rather than cool weather, you would probably choose the Traverse 15°F model – pair it with a high R-Value sleeping mat like the Comfort Light Insulated.

  • Able to be zipped to another sleeping bag? Yes. The main side zipper can be zipped to many Sea to Summit Unisex sleeping bags – Regular and Long bags have the same side zipper length.

  • Suitable for summer temperatures? Yes. A full-length side zipper, a second half-length zipper, and a foot box zipper can be opened for ventilation or to turn the Traverse into a fully-flat comforter in really warm weather.
