Technical Information

1
Temperature of use:
All our sleeping bags display the comfort and limit temperature ratings, tested by an independent laboratory (AITEX), in accordance with the European standard NF ISO 23537 - 2017. The "comfort temperature" is the lower comfort limit at which a user in relaxed position is in overall thermal balance and is neither hot nor cold (determined for an average woman in normal conditions of use). Choose your sleeping bag according to this criterion.
2
What are the limit temperatures for usage?
Limit temperature: temperature limit at which the user of the sleeping bag in huddled-up position is generally in thermal equilibrium and is neither cold nor hot (determined for a standard man under normal conditions of use).We recommend using an insulation mattress to optimise your thermal comfort. This sleeping bag is lined with synthetic wadding to ensure its performance even in wet conditions.

However, this is what you need to know about temperatures:
A sleeping bag does not produce heat but retains the heat produced by the body. If you are tired and cold and you slip inside a cold, damp sleeping bag, it is very likely that you will feel cold no matter how good your sleeping bag is! In the night, your thermal comfort will not only depend on the weather conditions (damp, wind, etc) but also your physical fitness, your equipment (mattress, etc), your clothing (wool under-garments, etc).
4
For greater comfort, before getting into your sleeping bag:
Dress simply (1 layer of clothing is enough). Warm-up your extremities: 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 consumed is converted into heat) but without making any movement generating a cold airstream. Use a sleeping bag liner to maximise the heat and hygiene inside your sleeping bag.

Shape:
Wide at the shoulders and tighter at the feet to optimise thermal insulation (no heat loss) and compactness, while maintaining relative freedom of movement. Width at the shoulders 70 cm, height at the feet 32 cm in size L. 62/28 in S, 66/30 in M, 74/34 in XL. Ergonomic hood, Drawcord. Two double-slider side zips, lined with a flap (tube) in anti-cold wadding (thermal bridges), side openings. Easy mechanical ventilation.

Size L 1.2 kg, user height 1.70m to 1.84m. Cover size: L 40 cm Ø 19 cm. Volume 11.3 L. Size XL: 1.29kg, user height: between 1.85m and 2m. Cover size: L 40 cm Ø 20 cm. Volume 12.6 L. Volume & dimensions can vary according to the pressure applied to the product.

Size and thermal insulation:
The weight, volumes & sizes can vary slightly due to production tolerances. Try your sleeping bag before buying it to choose the right size for your comfort. The advantage of a sarcophagus-shaped sleeping bag is to optimise the weight/volume and thermal ratio. Indeed, with a bag that fits close to the body, you will have less volume to heat (saving your energy). Conversely, this type of bag can limit your freedom of movement, especially when the zips are closed.

Eco-design
Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce the impact on the environment, we choose "bi-ton" dyeing, meaning only one out of every two threads are dyed. This dyed yarn is also dyed using mass pigmentation, using colour pigments when the yarn is manufactured.
10
Eco-design (continued)
Wadding in polyester wadding with 70% polyester recycled polyester, reducing its environmental impact. All these eco-design choices enable the CO2 emissions of this sleeping bag to be reduced by 16% compared to the former model.

Product test
All our sleeping bags undergo mechanical tests that test the performance and resistance of the sleeping bag to guarantee better sleep and recuperation (thermal resistance, resistance to abrasion, comfort, etc). We also carry out many tests in the field, in real conditions.

Stockage tips
You can easily store your bag by stuffing it loosely into its cover, feet section first.To keep it fluffed up & ensure good thermal performance, remove from its cover, extend, store it in a dry place.
