  • Any chance you know the EN ratings for this? Is 5oz comfort or limit rated to 30F?

    Thank you! Great stuff all over this site. Wonderful to find!

  • I don't think these are EN ratings, but from personal experience, I used a 2.5oz frontcountry quilt kit, and was good down to 50deg. I was also wearing base layers and a hat with a R3.3 pad, so it was pretty close to EN ratings I suppose!

  • How funny, I was looking at the climashield APEX on RBTR and googled temp ratings and this ended up being what came up. Thanks for the info!

  • What about doubling up? 2 layers of 3.6 vs 1 layer of 7.5?
