We display the "comfort temperatures" on all our sleeping bags, tested by an independent laboratory (AITEX) in compliance with European standard EN 13537 from 11/04/2002. The "comfort temperature" is the lower comfort limit at which a user in relaxed position is in thermal balance and is not hot or cold (determined for an average woman and in normal conditions of use). CHOOSE YOUR SLEEPING BAG ACCORDING TO THESE STANDARDS
What is the comfort limit temperature?
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 heat but retains the heat produced by the body. If you're exhausted, cold and slip into your icy, damp sleeping bag, you risk getting a cold, no matter what its features are! These temperatures depend on the person's resistance to cold (corpulence, fatigue,...), equipment (insulating the floor mattress,...), clothing (naked, underwear,...), and weather conditions (humidity, wind,...).
A few tips before you slip into your sleeping bag:
Dress simply (1 layer of clothing is enough) Warm up your hands and feet: hats, gloves, socks, heaters, rubbing... A flask of hot water can be used as a hot water bottle (if there is no risk of unintended opening!) Contract your muscles (70% of the energy consumed is converted into heat) but without making any movement generating a cold airstream. To avoid washing your sleeping bag too often, we advise you to use a liner (ref: 8382711).
A score for comparing products' environmental impact
The environmental impact of the product are calculated based on the life cycle of the product and with different indicators. A score ranging from A to E is attributed so that you can easily identify the products with a better environmental performance compared to products of the same type (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.).Decathlon is committed to this ecological labelling.

Easily store your sleeping bag by stuffing it into its cover feet first. To keep it fluffed up, which will ensure good thermal performance, remove its cover and store it somewhere dry.
