Zip and Neck Baffles

Criterion offers five different configurations of zip and neck baffles within our sleeping bag ranges. These offer the best warmth to weight ratios for the activities our sleeping bags have been designed for.

A zip baffle is an insulated tube inside your sleeping bag which stops body heat escaping through the zip. Unlike other companies, all of our sleeping bags have full-length zips which allow easy access and egress and full zip venting.

Neck baffles or collars help to insulate the body by reducing the heat loss due to having an open hood, neck baffles allow the bag to be drawn tighter around the neck and shoulders which traps heat within the body of the bag.
