NEED A HIKING SLEEPING BAG TO KEEP YOU WARM?
The ‘EN rating’ measures a hiking sleeping bag’s performance based on three key temperatures:
- A ‘comfort’ limit - Lowest outside temperature at which a standard woman can sleep comfortably
- A ‘lower’ limit - Lowest outside temperature at which a standard man can sleep comfortably
- An ‘extreme rating’ - Survival only rating for a standard adult woman
Always select your hiking sleeping bag based on the coldest temperature you expect to encounter.
