Machine wash at 30°C max. Add tennis balls to prevent the down from balling. - Rinse well. - 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

    Simond - Makalu Down bag

    This is a good quality product, it is a definite recommendation. It's a decent price for a decent down bag with good down insulation, it is light for my bicycle and trekking tours and covers all the needs of a good three season bag.
    The only drawback is the sizing (length), but I took into account the wrong sizing after looking at other comments for similar products made by simond, and thus got a larger size just in case, turned out it is just fine for my 170cm height. But this is something I would not consider a product drawback, just a mistake of the manufacturers measurements.
    Anyway, If you are looking for a good 3 season bag than this should be your choice if you want to pack relatively light, warm and cheap.

    Hält mehr als er verspricht

    Habe den Schlafsack bei -15° verwendet, mit einem Fleece und langer Unterhose gar kein Problem. Auch das Packmaß ist top und mit nichts in dieser Preiskategorie vergleichbar.

    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] jederzeit zur Verfügung.
    Wir wünschen weiterhin viel Freude in der Natur und verbleiben

    Mit sportlichen Grüßen
