BTW interesting point he specifies as manufacturers in the USA are beginning to label their products with the European standard upgrade by (American Standard), such as REI and MARMOT

Again I say: no standard. Each manufacturer does what he seems.

About marmot, example:

Http://marmot.com/fall_2009/equipment/sleeping_bags/ultralight/hydrogen_reg/info/details


Note that this bag is listed as 1 of the top thus appears in most stores and sites but so is comfort specifications across plus 4 according to the European standard (use EN 13537 Tested)

Incidentally from what I recall, according to the standard set of 5 c difference between men and women, so for example, if we assume that the specifications of the Play65 ™ bag is for men, the woman will upgrade plus 9 compared to 1 under. Very significant difference

Maybe that explains why I froze cold in the Israel National Trail (INT) in the desert with a sleeping bag to 7 degrees according to the European standard only after I added the shcsh liner was warm enough.
