EN Ratings - setting the standard:
EN13537 is a European standard for sleeping bag temperature ratings.
While any testing method can be questioned, the EN standard has been in use for over 7 years now and is being used in more than 25 countries
Everyone sleeps differently; some people are very warm sleepers while others feel the cold easily. There are many factors that affect your warmth and comfort in a sleeping bag. An important factor is that you use a good insulating mat, so your body heat isn t drawn into the cold ground you are sleeping on. Other factors include your tent or shelter, gender and metabolism, clothing, sleeping bag liner, use of the hood and your daily calorie intake.
Although the EN13537 standard does not identify a single precise temperature a tested sleeping bag is suitable for, it does provide an industry standardised temperature range that a typical user can refer to as a guide for the conditions their bag will be most comfortable in. The EN13537 standard provides three temperature levels to guide a consumer in their choice Comfort- This is the rating Roman quote on bags. the temperature at which a standard woman can expect to sleep comfortably in a relaxed position. If you consider yourself a cold sleeper use this rating to decide the coldest temperature the sleeping bag is suitable for.
Lower Limit- the temperature at which a standard man can sleep for eight hours in a curled position without waking. If you consider yourself a warm sleeper you can use this rating to decide the coldest temperature the sleeping bag is suitable for.
Extreme- this is a survival only rating for a standard woman. Between the lower limit and the extreme rating a strong sensation of cold has to be expected and there is a risk of health damage due to hypothermia. This is an extreme survival rating only, we do not recommend you rely on this rating for general use

ROMAN PALM LITE ULTRA COMPACT HOODED SLEEPING BAGBy: Yvette on 13 December 2018I bought this product for my son to go trekking in Borneo and Malaysia. This fantastic little bag is rated indoors but my son is a very warm sleeper and the climate where they were trekking is extremely hot so was a perfect choice for him for sleeping. As it says in the description it fits in the palm of your hand, is extremely light and packs down easily into the compression bag it comes with.
Good Warm Weather BagBy: Adam on 17 November 2018I'm a warm sleeper and I've always struggled with sleeping bags in summer and spring. This bag is perfect for such times. It's light weight, cheap and versatile.
By: Peter on 25 June 2016What a great sleeping bag , very compact , light as a feather but keeps you warm., ideal for hiking //overseas travel when space & weight are a issue
Exactly What I RequiredAnonymous 28 March 2015A perfect light weight sleeping bag for the traveller looking to stay in budget accommodation. Not something for the snow, ice or cold outdoors but great for the 'great' indoors where bedding is not supplied (or trusted)....
Good value for a warm weather sackAnonymous 7 December 2014The price is right and the sleeping bag packs up very, very small. It weighs very little and made a perfect sleeping back for an overnight hike in Nth. Qld. Haven't used it beyond that, so can't comment on the quality apart from saying everything seemed OK on the first walk. Wild Earth have provided me heaps of gear recently via online store and I couldn't fault their service. I'll definitely order from them again.
