Criterion Range Temperature Rating
All of the Criterion models in the table below have been independently tested for warmth by Leeds University Performance Clothing Research Group
The results for all of the Criterion models were at least as good as stated – and were better in most cases
To get to their stated temperature ratings the sleeping bags have been tested, to British Standard BS 4745 and ISO 5087-1, by the University of Leeds’ Performance Clothing Research Group.
These tests gave both a TOG rating which you would be familiar with when buying a bed duvet as well as a specific temp in °C.
This is a starting point as laboratory tests are controlled environments, the mannequins do not move or sweat.
Through product testing, expeditions and tester feedback Criterion have refined the labratory ratings to the ones advertised for the sleeping bags.
In cases where they have changed the tested rating the temperature has been reduced to be more cautionary and safer.
