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: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/

    Great so far

    Im a cold sleeper but this bag kept me nice & warm on a recent 14 day camping trip. Although my trip happened in June in true UK style the weather was wet & at times quiet cold, especially overnight. So far this seems like excellent quality for such a cheap price. The store assistant did advise buying one of the slightly cheaper down bags as he thought Id be too hot using this product, Im glad I followed my gut feeling and paid a little extra for this product. Im 5'5" and the size was great I had some room in the bottom of the bag which was great to stuff my fleece & down jacket so they were nice & toasty in the morning. Im really pleased with this product , thanks decathlon.

    Hřejivý a pohodlný

    S recenzí tohoto spacáku jsem čekala velmi dlouho, ale nyní ho mám pořádně vyzkoušený. Hledala jsem spacák, který nestojí mnoho tisíc, ale je vhodný i do zimních podmínek. Tento spacák jsem si vybrala, jelikož má unikátní střih (široká ramena).
    Je opravdu, opravdu teplý. Ačkoli jsem pořád zmrzlá, v tomto spacáku mi chladno nebylo ani v zimě. Neřekla bych, že pro hubenou ženu jako já je opravdu komfortní teplota -5°, ale třeba 0-5°je úplně v pohodě. Nutné kombinovat také s dobrou karimatkou.
    Nevím, jestli ten střih nakonec bude sedět úplně každému. Doporučuji nejdříve vyzkoušet, jelikož já si celkem musela zvykat na spaní v jiné poloze.
    Jestli něco doporučuji po zkušenosti, tak je to spacákem po rozložení hodně zatřást, aby se tam dostal vzduch. Ráno je opravdu nadýchaný jak obláček. Má také moc hezkou barvu.
    Jediné nevýhody pro mě jsou, že bych přecijen potřebovala o něco kratší (mám 160 cm) jelikož mám v nohách ještě dost prostoru. A druhou nevýhodou je, že pokud vyjede zip, tak se připravte na tříminutové nandavání, které je ve tmě fakt náročné :D
    Jinak je ale skvělý, výborně se vejde do svého obalu a je opravdu lehký (můj má 1070 g). Je také příjemný na dotek.

    Makalu I Blau

    Ich habe diesen Schlafsack vor ca 2 Jahren gekauft, und nur in der kalten Jahreszeit in Benutzung.
    Bei einem Winterbiwak auf 2000 m höhe bei Außentemperaturen von -5 ° C relativ windstill und sternenklar. In einem Biwaksack aus einem alten Innenzelt (sehr atmungsaktiv und wenig Kondenzwasserbildung) und einer Isomatte auf dem Schnee übernachtet.
    Der mittige Reisverschluss eignet sich sehr gut um den Schlafsack bis auf das Atemloch zu verschliesen, weil man ihn mit beiden Händen optimal bedienen kann. Bei seitlichen Reisverschlüssen ist das sehr viel unkomfortabler. Am Anfang der Nacht waren meine Skisocken noch nass, dadurch hatte ich zuerst kalte Füße, als diese getroknet waren, war die Nacht sehr angehm und ich konnte gut schlafen. Bei meiner letzten Trekkingtour, Zelt und mehrere Tage strömender Regen bei Temperaturen um 5° C war trotz der hohen Luftfeuchtigkeit, der Schlafsack
    so warm dass ich ihn meistens nur als Decke verwendet habe.
