    Makalu sleeping bag review

    I used it in a trek in sikkim. Its a very warm sleeping bag but the only problem with it is that while sleeping the down benathe you moves out to other places in the bag and after some time your back is cold, it may be because there are no seams to hold the down to its place benathe your back. I want a solution to the problem. Please suggest.

    Brand response :

    Hi Sourav,

    Thanks for reaching out to us regarding your query about the Simond Makalu II down sleeping bag. I am sorry to hear that the sleeping bag did not meet your expectations.

    Would you tell me if you had a sleeping mat/pad underneath the bag? The down movement is prominent without an insulating layer beneath and also the user finds it more cold without this layer.
    I have the same sleeping bag and I used it on several occasions including Kang Yatse II, Koa Rong III and Rigoni Malai but I do make sure that I have the M200 foam mat underneath for better ground insulation.

    Regarding the seams of the sleeping bag, it's a tricky balance to achieve as too many seams means too many cold spots and too less means more down movement. Therefore we test multiple prototypes with different designs in lab as well as real conditions by partner mountain guides/users and the final version is validated after it passes the European Norms and user test both. However we strive to improve our products each day and therefore I will pass your feedback to our design team and product engineers for them to look into your concerns.

    Once again thank you for your valuable time.

    I am available should you have any more questions or doubts.

    Regards,
    Ravindra Charan

    Buen saco para expediciones frías

    Usado en Abril 2016 para trekking al campo Base del Everest y en Octubre 2017 para Island peak 6280m.
    El Saco es estrecho y puede resultar algo incomodo, pero por eso mismo a los 5 minutos entras en calor una vez dentro. las botellas de agua se congelaban dentro de la habitación. menos mal que el saco fue un acierto. testado a unos -15, -20 reales. El peso en un saco de plumas es alto pero imprescindible. calidad /precio no hay nada comparable. las falsedades de thamel en Kathmandu al final no sirven

    Decepción con simond

    Compre hace unos días este saco el cual devolveré ya q la mala distribución de algunas celdas , tabiques hacen q queden zonas casi sin pluma y la pérdida de calor y entrada de frío , es una pena ya q estaba contento con esta marca y el saco en si

    Super douillet.

    Sac de couchage très performant même par température largement en dessous de -30 degrés.

    Cumpre o que Promete!!

    Testei o saco no Parque Estadual do Itatiaia Rj e Pico do Marins em Piquete sp. nos dois peguei temperatura próximo a 5 graus e mal da pra ficar de roupa dentro do Saco, que além de muito confortável e leve e reduz espaço dentro da mochila. Recomendo!!
