Technical Information

1
Temperature of use:
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 depending on this criteria.
2
What are the temperature "limits" at which it can be used?
Limit temperature: temperature limit at which the user of the recurred sleeping bag is generally in thermal equilibrium and is neither cold nor hot (determined for a standard man and under normal conditions of use).
3
However, 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,...).
4
For greater comfort, before getting into your sleeping bag:
Dress simply (1 layer of clothing is enough). Warm your extremities: hats, gloves, socks, heaters, friction... 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. Use a liner sheet, ideally made of silk to maximize the heat inside your sleeping bag.

Used for 2 to 8 weeks
It's small and light, so perfect for a trip where size and weight of luggage is crucial.
Suggestions for Improvements:
- The zippers should go all the way down and not end at knee-height
- The zipper was sometimes really difficult to open
- A pocket inside the sleeping bag would be handy to keep personal belongings close
