Hi, I’m interested in the Sawatch if it’s still available. Do you think the -7 rating would be a realistic comfort rating for this bag? I’m replacing my -4 quilt because I can’t go below about +5 (with thermals!) without feeling cold. Would rather not make the same mistake again.

Hi Alana,

Short answer is no. I don't think these would be comfortable at -7c (without help).
Most people would be happy into the minuses but how far will be purely a personal situation.

That said, we've used them for mixed groups in winter and they will (generally) reach their rating by adding combinations of insulated jacket, pants, socks or booties... for most people. But then, while it's manageable, -7c is not common here in Tassie, and to get a warmer rating that will cover (almost) anyone at that temperature could require a heavy /bulky -18c bag (we did try -18c, still with occasional coldies)

Marmot are one of the better ones and you can get a good idea of expected weights of down compared to ratings from the EN tested bags on their site.

It may help to know exactly what '-4c' quit you have?, to advise what you could expect from these bags.

I actually have a few of each left (men's /women's).. so should have stock for a while.

It’s a sea to summit ember 3. I’ve used it twice now down to 3 degrees with thermals, wools socks and insulated jacket and still woken up cold. Perhaps quilts are just not for me?

It’s highly unlikely I’ll be in -7 conditions but perhaps -3 on occasion. I’m a cold female sleeper so I think I might need a bit of leeway on the comfort rating.

No doubt great quality quilts but even at it's best, 200 grams is not a lot of down. I just got a quilt made with 450g /850+ expecting them to cover most people to -7/8c. I recall thinking the table on Mike's thread here was pretty accurate in the real world: viewtopic.php?f=27&t=24995&hilit=made+to+order .. which would put your quit at +5/6c in real terms for most people (without insulated clothing).

There would inevitably still be someone cold in these bags at -3c, but well fed, not exhausted etc. and especially with spare clothing i'd expect you'd be ok with these (definitely much warmer than your quilt).

Thanks so much. I really appreciate you help. I’m going to think about it for a bit and I’ll get back to you. Glad to hear it’s the quilt and not me!
