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 depending on this criteria.
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
For greater comfort, before getting into your sleeping bag:
Dress simply (1 layer of clothing 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.Use a sleeping bag sheet, ideally made from silk.

It rained in my trip to triund. Even though the bags were packed well it got all wet. I had to take another tent uphill as it was impossible to sleep in it. So, actually i didnt use it uptil now but surely its a fail in rain.

For a sleeping bag in this price range you
Can't go wrong with the Forclaz 10. The zip may be a little temperamental but what do you expect with a £15.00 sleeping bag.
For summer camping it's ideal.
