Temperature rating
We display on all our sleeping bags, the temperature ratings tested in an independent lab (AITEX) based on European Standard EN 13537 (2016). The "comfort temperature rating" is the lower limit when a user in the sleeping position is generally in thermal equilibrium and is neither hot or cold (based on a "standard" woman in normal conditions of use). Choose your sleeping bag based on this feature.
What you must know about temperature ratings
A sleeping bag does not generate heat, but "maintains" heat generated by body. If you are exhausted and cold and you slip in to your freezing and damp sleeping bag, you risk staying cold whatever the sleeping bag's features! These temperature ratings therefore depend on a person's resistance to the cold (build, fatigue, etc.), on their equipment (mattress that insulates from the ground, etc.), on their clothing (naked, underwear, etc.), and on weather conditions (damp, wind, etc.).
A rating for comparing products environmental impact
Product's environmental impacts are calculated throughout its life cycle and with different indicators. An overall score (ABCDE) is attributed to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with one another (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon chose to apply this voluntary environmental labelling scheme. To get more information:

    Producto excelente de gran calidad. Muy muy caliente, creo que los rangos de temperatura que marca se corresponden bien a la realidad. Muy comodo. Ideal para los que como yo buscamos un saco compacto y ligero, de calidad, técnico y ajustado de precio. Muy recomendable.

    Testado en trekking al campo base del Annapurna durante 10 días. Ideal para las noches fresquitas!!!
    Había probado otros sacos pero ninguno me ha resultado como este: Ligero, cómodo, muy buen aislamiento, rápida capacidad de inflado del plumón, MUY CÓMODO PARA AQUELLOS QUE NOS MOVEMOS MUCHO DURMIENDO.
    Sencillo de guardar y de llevar, entra en cualquier hueco de la mochila, independientemente de la posición.
    Muy recomendable para noches frías y gente friolera.
    Ojo! La pluma es delicada de cuidar... a tener en cuenta este último aspecto.
