Technical Information

1
Use temperature:
We label all of our sleeping bags with a "comfort temperature" which is tested by an independent laboratory (AITEX) in accordance with European standard EN 13537 of 11/04/2002. The "comfort temperature" is the lower temperature limit at which the user feels comfortable overall - neither hot nor cold - while lying in a relaxed position (temperature determined for an average woman under normal conditions of use). CHOOSE YOUR SLEEPING BAG ACCORDINGLY
2
What are the temperature "limits" at which it can be used?
Comfort limit temperature: The minimum temperature at which a user feels comfortable overall - neither hot nor cold - while huddled up in the sleeping bag (as determined for an average male user under normal conditions).

However, here's what you need to know about temperatures:
A sleeping bag does not produce any heat. Rather, it retains the heat produced by the body. If you are tired and cold and you slip inside a cold, damp sleeping bag, you will most likely feel cold no matter how good your bag! These temperatures depend on a person's ability to withstand cold (build, fatigue, etc.), his equipment (insulating mattress, etc.), the way he is dressed (if he is naked, wearing underwear, etc.), and weather conditions (damp, wind, etc.).
4
Tips for warming up before getting into your sleeping bag:
Don't overdress (1 layer of clothes is enough) Keep your extremities warm: use hats, gloves, socks, bed warmers, rubbing, etc. A flask filled with hot water can be used as a foot or bed warmer (so long as there's no chance of it opening by accident!) Contract your muscles (70% of the energy you consume is transformed into heat) without making movements that could cause a draught.
5
Maintenance tips
Wash your bag separately from other clothes or delicate colours, use 1/3 of a dose of washing powder, and select a synthetic cycle at 30°C. Stretch the bag out to dry in a dry, well-ventilated place out of the sun and away from heat sources or tumble dry low. Tip: a sleeping bag liner allows you to spread out washes and maintain good thermal performance.

Used for 1 week or less
Quality is excellent, best price,never have got this product from anywhere.
Quality matters this is what decathlon gives you .
wrong temperature rating
Used for 1 week or less
an easy to use and pack-up sleeping bag, very cosy, light and compact

BUT WRONG temperature rating

I bought this a week ago in Spain (june). Day temperatures were 30 degrees

I used this sleeping bag dressed in THICK thermal leggings, thigh long, super thick warm socks and a winter downs jacket and jumper. I was sleeping on a sleeping mat AND had a bivy bag - yet I woke up being cold :( Nights were uncomfortable because I kept on waking up feeling very cold - not so happy with the bag
light, small, cosy and compact
didn't keep warm at all
Survived to fight another day with this SB
I recently went on a small beginner Vol Biv expedition where we use either hike or fly paragliders across mountain terrain. I was on a route that leads from The pre-Julian Alps to the Dolomites, and top landed Stol [1,405m / 4609ft]. I had no tent, and luckily, a friend I was with found a mountain cabin that I could sleep in for the night. The sun set at the temperature fell to 19C and it was perfect! Unluckily, the North wind started howling after an hour, and came from some higher peaks a few miles away where it had Snowed the night before. The temperature dropped to 4C, and it was a struggle untill sun rise, however, I'm still here to leave a review so for that I'm greatfull. For those that don't no, a human can suffer hypothermia at temperatures around 10C, higher if it's windy or damp. I'll continue to push the boundaries of these light weight tents because their pack size and weight needs to be small to fit in out paragliding harnesses. If size is an issue, this bag can be a great choice for summer alp conditions. If you like to be warm, then I'd pick a slightly warmer bag for spring and Autumn. If you want to live another day to possible leave your own Decatholon review, then get a warmer bag for winter.
