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 at which a user in the sleeping position is generally in thermal equilibrium and is neither hot nor 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.).
Score to compare the environmental impact of products
The environmental impact of the product is calculated over its entire 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/

    Hydroscopic material, poor design

    The outter fabric of the sleeping bag os made of hydroscopic material, which means that it attracts moisture . I tested it on altitudes between 1500 and 5000m and temperatures between 2 and -7 deg. Celsius. Every morning it would be wet, forcing me to wait for the sun to come out in order to dry it. My tent partner, also with a down sleeping bag from another brand didnt have this problem. In addition to this, at -7 deg C the heat was escaping through the zip and neck zone, due to the poor design, making the sleeping bag uncomrfortably cold. After the second day of use, the labellings and inscriptions started falling down.

    Brand response :

    Hi Txaber,

    Thank you for the feedback on the Makalu II and I am sorry that it has not met with your expectations. I will forward these issues onto the product designer to take into consideration for future production runs of the Makalu II.

    Once again thanks for the feedback.

    Brutal warm, dass ich ihn zurueck senden musste

    Bei 0 Grad geschlafen und drin geschwitzt. Leider viel zu warm. Mittel-RV ist super einfach zu oeffnen und klemmt nichts.
    Nen Nacken/Kaelteschutz hat er leider nicht ... koennte man fuer den Preis erwarten.

    Gut komprimierbar.

    Falsche Deklaration

    Die Komforttemperatur liegt entgegen der Angaben nur bei -6 Grad und die Limit Temperatur bei -13 Grad. Sowas darf nicht passieren. Ich habe mich darauf verlassen und habe nun keine Zeit mehr umzutauschen. Nächste Woche erwarten mich bis zu -15 Grad. Sehr unbefriedigend!

    Brand response :

    Hallo Stefan,

    vielen Dank, dass du dir die Zeit genommen hast, den Schlafsack zu bewerten. Wir bedauern sehr, dass du unzufrieden mit dem Produkt bist. Die Online Informationen und die Bedruckung auf dem Produkt waren tatsächlich widersprüchlich und die Marke hat es jetzt korrigiert, wie du es auf diesem Foto sehen kannst.

    Das darf natürlich nicht passieren. Allerdings ist -16 Grad demzufolge noch die Limit Temperatur.

    Viel Spaß beim Bergsteigen!

    Mit sportlichen Grüßen,
    Max
    Team DECATHLON
