How are sleeping bags rated

No category found

Sleeping bags are typically rated based on the temperature range in which they are designed to be used.

These ratings are usually indicated on the sleeping bag by a number, such as -6°C or 6°C, which represents the lowest temperature at which the sleeping bag will provide sufficient warmth for an average person.

These ratings are based on a standard set of conditions, such as a resting person in a tent, and should be used as a general guide.

It’s important to remember that everyone has different warmth requirements, and the actual temperature at which a sleeping bag will be comfortable will vary depending on factors such as body size, metabolism, and clothing.

It’s a good idea to choose a sleeping bag with a temperature rating that is appropriate for the conditions in which you will be camping.

There really isn’t one sleeping bag for all seasons. A winter sleeping bag will be too warm in the summer and you would be freezing in the winter with a summer bag.
