The ultimate temp rating of a quilt or apparel is subject to several variables, but as a rough guide, the following temperature ratings can be expected when using single-layers of Climashield® APEX insulation:
2.5 oz - 50o F
3.6 oz - 40o F
5.0 oz - 30o F
7.5 oz - 10o F
10 oz - -5o F
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?
