Questions & Answers
Thank you for your question.
Unfortunartely Western no longer produces that bag in purple, and it looks like we only have the Crimson (red) version on hand. I apologize.
Regarding temperature ratings, Western does not participate in EN ratings, so there is no separate men's and women's rating specified. However, we've found that Western rates their bags quite conservatively, as opposed to most manufacturers, and their ratings tend to be comfortable for the vast majority of users. That being said, if you run particularly cold, I might treat this bag more like a 20 degree F bag, or possibly 25 in extreme cases.
I hope this helps! Please let me know if you have any further questions or concerns.
