The EN Rating scale is a scientific test to determine the warmth of a sleeping bag. The test produces a Lower rating (for male sleepers) and a Comfort rating (for female sleepers). Both are listed in the features table on the product page.
A unisex sleeping bag with a Lower limit of 14ºF means a man should be comfortable down to air temperatures of 14ºF. The same bag will also have a Comfort limit, in the realm of 27°F, so a woman would be comfortable down to an air temperature of 27ºF. These ratings require a sleeping mat with an R-Value appropriate for expected ground temperatures – without this, the sleeping bag itself is unlikely to keep the sleeper warm enough.
A variety of factors impact sleeping bag warmth - the above temperatures are merely guidelines, not guarantees. It’s important to think of a sleeping bag, an appropriately insulating sleeping pad and a liner as a sleep system. For example - if you plan on sleeping in nighttime air temperatures of 27ºF / -3°C, choose a bag with a gender-appropriate rating of 23°F / -5°C, plus a sleeping mat with an R-Value of 2.5 to 3, and consider a Reactor thermal liner.
The Traverse transitions easily into warmer weather with a full-length left-side zipper, a half-length right-side zipper, and a foot box zipper that provide unparalleled ventilation or allow the Traverse to be opened completely flat like a comforter. In colder weather, the unique WaveLoft construction allows the Thermolite insulation to expand out into air-trapping curves for maximum warmth.
Whatever the season, the wider mummy cut of the Traverse gives you room to move, no matter what position you sleep in.
WaveLoft™ is a unique construction technology designed to maximize loft and minimalize insulation weight. Instead of conventional flat layers of insulation (sewn flat on top of each other) or shingle layers (sewn in diagonally overlapping layers), WaveLoft™ creates curved layers which expand out from the shell to trap the greatest amount of air possible at a lower overall weight than existing synthetic insulation constructions. WaveLoft™ is used on all Sea to Summit synthetic-insulated sleeping bags, regardless of price level.
Thermolite® HL-1 is part of the family of Thermolite® materials used in Sea to Summit sleeping bags, sleeping bag liners and sleeping mats. HL-1 high loft insulation is a fiberfill constructed with a unique 3D crimp of hollow-core and solid fibers, which provides excellent lightweight warmth with superior durability. The Thermolite insulation lofts up inside the Air Sprung Cells™ of our sleeping mats to prevent convective heat loss from your warm body to the cold ground.
Down and synthetic bags identified with our zip coupling symbol use a 65 inch #5 YKK full-length zip which allows a unisex left-handed and women's specific right-handed bag to pair together. Designed to pair side by side, each person sleeps in their own bag enabling each of you to take advantage of your bag's unique insulation zones, hood and footbox features - perfect for cozy adventures for two. Bags with full-length #5 YKK zips on both sides can also be coupled together with other pairing bags.
Our Free-Flow triple-zip design ensures your sleeping bag retains maximum warmth and efficiency when needed and multiple ventilation options when it's not. The half-zip on the right side of the bag (left side on women's bags) provides freedom of movement for both arms, additional ventilation and allows the top third of the bag to be folded down as a mini quilt when the mercury climbs higher than expected.

Frequently Asked questions
Warm enough for cool weather camping or travel?
Yes. The Thermolite® insulation with WaveLoft construction is designed to keep you warm when the temperature drops. For cold rather, we recommend the Traverse 15°F paired with a greater than 3.5 R-Value sleeping mat like the Comfort Light Insulated.
Suitable for summer temperatures?
Yes. A full-length side zipper, a second half-length zipper, and a foot box zipper can be opened for ventilation. In warm weather, unzip fully to turn the Traverse into a comforter.
Able to be zipped to another sleeping bag?
Yes. The main side zipper can be zipped to Sea to Summit Altitude, Journey or Venture sleeping bags. Regular and Long Traverse bags have the same side zipper length.
