All models :

User heights - Criterion Lady, 175 cm (5'9"); Criterion Quantum & Ultralight, 185 cm (6'1"); others, 190 cm (6'3").

The Expedition range and all Microlight models (except Criterion Ultralight) have insulated neck baffles. Neck baffle drawcords are elasticated.
Quantum models have neck warmers (a simplified type of neck baffle).

Criterion Lady models are shorter than the corresponding Criterion Traveller models but contain the same amount of down, which has been redistributed to provide additional filling in the base and the feet area. There is a polar fleece insert in the foot area to provide extra warmth and comfort.

Most of our models have been independently tested for temperature performance - please see bottom of this page.
