Quite a useless piece, this #Forclaz0Light, for what is being advertised as 0-5*C sleeping bag.
I am in #Archhandi and these days it goes down to 5* C and it is still so uncomfortable.
I wear a Neva thermal under my tee shirt and a Du-pont thermal lower and -33 F socks while sleeping.
I have spread it wide and safety-pinned (too slippery surface) a blanket on it at 6 places and it is tolerable.
Just not recommend for 0*C. Do your own tests before going anywhere.
While inside my Coleman 3-season tent with 10-12*C, last year, this was still pretty good. I would have given it 5 stars if it was good at 5*C, even.
I shudder and shiver(punned) to think that what it would do to me (or, FAIL to do) when it goes to 0*C within 20-30 days.
LIMIT RATING of - 5???
Decathlon, you shall kill someone who might rely on your words alone and carry it to some extreme place!
First covered with blanket on 26th October, 2018. Living in this place (look up the climate) since 17th October, 2018.
P.S. I have used from the most expensive to cheap Karol Bagh knockoffs for the last 23 years. I know what I am talking about.
It is a good product
I got this after comparing with other products that decathlon has and I am pretty satisfied with it. It is light and compact(though not as much as the helium 0) and offers good comfort at close to 0°. Proved really comfortable at high altitude treks, though the real test will be the chadar trek. However, I am not happy with the cover that it comes with. The stitchings on the cover is flimsy and can rip off easily if you are not careful. Otherwise it is a great product.
We bought these to trial as a dofe expedition option. We find that Yp turn out with in appropriate grade of bag. So we needed to offer an option ifbwatm and light and affordable. This bag is that. On a cold weekend in September we put it through a dofe weekend. It fitted well in a rucksack, kept us warm overnight (temp dropped to +3 ).
The double zip didn't cause any cold spotting it added to ease of access. All in all we were suitably impressed. The sale price made it excellent value for money. Normal price makes it a more considered purchase.
1, Not sure why the color is described as pink.
2, Not sure ultralight... not really accurate there are a lot of non-ultralight bags which have the same weight
3, the size is really misleading/wrong. I'm 5 foot 10 and can easily fit in the medium bag. I would sort this out as it will effect online sales.
It is a really nice sleeping bag. Good quality, not bulky (when in a carry bag) and very cosy. It is also not too heavy. But firstly, why article title says pink? It's not a pink at all. Secondly, when you'll take it out from compression bag first time, you better watch how it was rolled in, because it's not so easy to put it back in a bag again. It would be nice to have additional straps to strap a sleeping bag before putting it into carry bag. I say that only because carry/compression bag is so thin, that I guess, it's easy to rip it apart. But sleeping bag itself? Excellent!
Spacious and comfortable with the extra padding and all. Kept me warm. A tad heavy but worth it.
