Kelty has always tested sleeping bags to make sure that their customers are warm and comfortable on their adventures. Now they`ve adopted the European Norm (EN) 13537 test process which provides a standardized comparison method for all sleeping bag brands so that it is easier for you to choose the right sleeping bag for your needs. The two temperature ratings listed are Comfort and Lower Limit. Comfort is defined as the temperature that a standard woman (60 kg / 132 lbs) will be comfortable at versus Lower Limit which is the temperature that a standard man (80 kg / 176 lbs) will be comfortable at.
Women`s Specific Design
These unique, anatomically designed bags are shaped to fit a woman`s contours and are shorter than our unisex bags to provide an efficient and comfortable fit. To ensure warmth, Kelty places additional insulation over the hood, chest, and foot of the bag. Finally, they include appealing stylistic touches on these bags such as unique colors, wave-shaped baffles and designer taping along the zipper.
Wave Shaped Baffles
Since down can shift within an individual baffle, Kelty uses wave shaped baffles to limit this movement. The up-and-down wave shape creates an obstacle to limit any unwanted side-to-side shifting of the down. They use wave-shaped baffles in their womenÕs specific line.
Goose Down is the most efficient natural fill material available. Lightweight, compressible, and incredibly warm, down garments and sleeping bags are the gear of choice for serious backpackers and mountaineers.
