Criterion Lady Differences

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.
