Sleeping Bags Temperature Guide

Sleeping Bag Temperature Rating 

Since 2002 European standard for sleeping bags, accurately measuring and counting temperatures.
Reliable producers or importers of these values already indicate. The slowest at least three values – max., Comfort and extreme. If the sleeping bag not find three figures, but two or even just one, it does not mean that the sleeping bag is bad. The author just tries to confuse the customer. It can then be regarded as extreme temperature comfortable. And extreme temperature absolutely is not temperature in which you should risk a night in the sleeping bag .


All data presented is valid only under ideal laboratory conditions and for standard man or woman!
In practice, the conditions of usage of sleeping bag is extremely variable. It is always a combination of following factors: ambient air temperature, radiation temperature of the ambient air velocity and turbulence of air humidity captured in sleeping bag and surrounding humidity, clothing people position of a person in a sleeping bag insulation between sleeping bag and ground and thermal insulation of ground, pressing a sleeping bag weight and volume users other than the ideal ratio of area and volume, the user space and sleeping bag.

Temperature determine sleeping bags for backpackers under a single European standard EN 13537 is determined as follows:

Comfort (upper comfort) temperature at which a user in a relaxed lying supine in the overall heat balance and feel cold. Relative to the normal figure of women under normal conditions. Limit (lower comfort) lower limit at which a user lying in a fetal position in the overall heat balance and does not feel cold. Relative to the current figure of a man under normal conditions of use.

Extreme temperature at which the risk of damage to health due to hypothermia. Relative to the normal figure of women under normal conditions of use. Definitely not to be taken as the temperature at which can comfortably sleep.

Despite these figures, however, we need to consider other factors such as the current state of metabolism and environment.
They may also distort the emotional temperature, even though the fair will comply with these values. Different emotional temperature perceives a man, woman or child. It depends on the actual physical condition or the physical and mental state. Great influence has also ambient humidity or wear body. We recommend sleeping oblést clothes other than what you wore during the day, which should be dry. Clothing You should be stacked from underwear and other first layer (which should not be too strapped), if necessary, add a second layer of warm material. In the event that neither two coats are not enough and want to add more, make sure that you always have enough space in my sleeping bag, otherwise you compress insulating layer itself, sleeping bag, clothes and bedding will be counterproductive.
