Our Sleep Systems framework details how bags can be layered together and/or combined with clothing, but while different systems may have similar ratings to each other, sleeping comfortably isn’t simply a matter of numbers! So, in these case studies, we share some of the human experiences taken from development testing and from real-world use, so you can get a feel for different styles of Sleep System. As always, do feel free to contact us by phone or email if there’s anything you need to discuss.

"Pete was using a Hispar 500 (rated to -15°C). I was in a Minim Overbag (rated to –5°C) with an Ultra Vest and Minimus Down Trousers and Socks. I was warm enough to sleep and so was Pete. The temperature varied between -18°C & -21°C all night."

"The Wafers showed their real value when I had to get up in the early hours and walk the dog around in a wind chill of about -6°C ... Besides adding warmth inside the sleeping bag, they really proved the comfort value of having warm clothing on already."

"The two bags feel like one, but it's somehow cosier. I have been warm, comfortable even delighted using these bags. I think it's good to look at the two bags as a system and as individual bits of kit. That way it does kinda cover the whole year."

"Two smaller bags took up about the same space as my old bag, but were considerably easier to pack … I was very impressed with the system. It’s now so obvious - I can't believe it's taken me 30 years to apply this layering principle to my sleeping system."
