Table Footnotes

  1. All of our sleeping bags use a boxwall construction for the base and use either, a Boxwall, Trapezoid or Brick construction for the upper.
  2. Fill Power (Loft) – Fill Power is the volume in cubic inches to which 30gms of down will expand when it lofts
  3. Fill Volume – Fill volume is the volume to which the total of all the down in the sleeping bag will expand when lofted. The greater the Fill Volume, the warmer the sleeping bag – all other things being equal.
  4. Criterion has used independent temperature testing to British Standard BS4745 and ISO 5087-1.
