No standards

Response to Sleeping bag temperature ratings


No, there are no standards for sleeping bag temp ratings. Some brands tend to be conservative, others rather optimistic in their ratings, and some vary from bag to bag. People vary too much to make ratings globally applicable anyways.

I generally divide bags into summer, 3-season, and winter, and the bags should be pretty clear on which they fall into. Everything else is magic, not science.
