Advice

CARE INSTRUCTIONS
Machine wash at 30°C max. Add tennis balls to prevent the down from balling. - Rinse thoroughly. - Drying: the quality of our feathers and down has been rigorously checked; since these are natural materials, stains or odours can appear when damp. => The bag must be totally dry before storing. Tumble dry or leave to air dry flat, shaking and tapping it from time to time. - Dry cleaning not recommended
Storage Tips
Store your sleeping bag in its storage cover in a dry place because there is the risk of the down deteriorating if it is compressed for a long period of time in its compression sack

Grosse deception

Deuxième jour d'utilisation, j'ouvre mon sac et je m'allonge dedans et là c'est l'explosion de plumes. La toile d'un des bords intérieurs a sauté au niveau de la couture proche de la fermeture eclair laissant sortir pas mal de duvet. Dur à reparer.. La prochaine fois je ne ferais pas l'impasse sur le prix et irait au VC pour acheter une marque plus solide. Très déçu par la qualité de ce produit. Je suis de taille et de corpulence normale 1m80 et 80kg.

Brand response :

Bonjour Monsieur, 
Je vous remercie d'avoir pris le temps de nous faire cette remontée. Je suis désolée que vous ayez eu cette expérience négative avec notre sac de couchage MAKALU.
D'après ce que vous décrivez il doit s'agir d'une dérive de production ou d'un défaut qualité isolé. 
Vous pouvez vous faire échanger votre sac de couchage dans un de nos magasins DECATHLON. Celui-ci me sera ensuite retourné, pour que je puisse faire une analyse du défaut. 
En espérant que le prochain modèle vous apportera plus de satisfaction, 
Sportivement,

    Stinkend Schlafsack

    Habe gerade mein Schlafsack zurückgeben müssen. Ein üble Gestank hat dieses Exemplar von sich gegeben. Ich hatte erste gedacht es liegt am Zelt oder Umgebung aber es war der Schlafsack. Ich habe es im Herne zurückgebracht. Da hing übrigens noch ein Exemplar was gestunken hat.

    Brand response :

    Guten Tag,
    vielen Dank, dass du dir Zeit genommen hast, um deine Erfahrungen mit unserem Schlafsack der Marke Simond mit uns zu teilen. Unangenehme Gerüche sind beim Übernachten unpraktisch. Die gleichen Schlafsäcke riechen in Plochingen nicht. Daher kann es sein, dass es sich um eine einmalige Lieferung handelt, die betroffen war. Gerne geben wir deine Anmerkungen an die Produktmanager weiter, die an der Weiterentwicklung unserer Produkte permanent arbeiten. Wobei wir in diesem Fall von einem (Zu-)Lieferproblem ausgehen.
    Grundlegend kannst du unsere Produkte innerhalb eines Jahres gegen Vorlage deines Kassenzettels oder deiner Kundenkarte in jeder Decathlon-Filiale oder in unserem Onlineshop umtauschen oder retournieren. Solltest du hierbei Fragen haben, steht dir unser Servceteam (service[at]decathlon.de) jederzeit zur Verfügung.
    Wir wünschen weiterhin viel Freude in der Natur und verbleiben

    Mit sportlichen Grüßen
    Ruben
    DECATHLON Team

    Contento pero no

    Seré claro y conciso:

    Desventajas:
    -falto de collarin
    -forma de momia incomodo no tiene altura para los pies.
    -talla M?
    -Pierde un poco de pluma(muy poquito)
    -bolsillo interior(al menos no he encontrado)
    Ventajas:
    -Abriga
    -Precio
    -Color y diseño
    -Funda para almacenaje descomprimido

    Sinceramente, despues de varios sacos pensé haber dado con el correcto pero no estoy muy contento del todo. Lo mas seguro lo venda y me vaya marcas.
    Gracias, en general muy contento con DECATHLON.

    Brand response :

    Hola Adrian,

    En primer lugar agradecerte tu comentario que nos ayuda a mejorar cada dia. Decirte que algunas de tus ideas ya estan siendo trabajadas por la marca para el desarrollo de futuros modelos. En este sentido somos bastante reactivos a la opinion de nuestros clientes y comentarios tan completos como el tuyo nos ayudan enormemente en nuestro trabajo por ofrecerle a los usuarios los mejores productos al mejor precio.

    Gracias de nuevo.
    Un saludo.
