Sleeping bags do not produce heat, and “store” that which the body releases. If, exhausted and frostbitten, slipped into the cold and damp sleeping bag, there is a risk you are cold, regardless of its merits. Therefore, these temperatures depend on the durability of the face of cold (physique, fatigue, etc.), of his equipment (insulating mattress, etc.), clothing (without clothes, underwear, etc.) and climate (humidity, wind, etc.).
1. Temperature of Use
Every sleeping bag listed “temperatures comfort” tested by an independent laboratory (AITEX) in accordance with European standard EN 13 537 from 11.04.2002 “temperature comfort” is the lower limit at which the user is lying relax in thermal equilibrium and it is neither hot nor cold (defined for the average woman under normal conditions of use). Choose your sleeping bag on this indicator.
2. What Are the “Border” Temperatures of Use?
Border temperature comfort: limit temperature at which the user is lying curled up in the sack is in thermal equilibrium and is neither warm nor cold (defined for the average man under normal conditions of use).

4. Practical Tips for Warming Before Bed in the Sleeping Bag
Dress normally (1 layer clothing is enough). Warm limbs, hats, gloves, socks, hot-water bottle with hot water, rubbing and others. Flask with hot water can be used as a heater (if there is no danger of opening). Contracting and relaxing muscles (70% of the energy is converted into heat), but not moving, not to create cold air flow.
5. Tips for Maintenance
Do not wash the sleeping bag with other garments or fabrics with delicate colors, add 1/3 dose detergent, select the program for synthetic fabrics, 30 ° C. To dry the army sleeping bag made of synthetic fabrics, hang it in a cool dry place away from direct sunlight and heat sources, or use the dryer on low temperature. Practical advice – use of the sheet ensures reduction in the frequency of laundry bag and thus keeping the thermal insulating properties.
Fabric inside: 100% polyester. Fabric on the outside: 100% polyester. PCB: 100% polyamide. Filling: 100% polyester wadding TS3D 150 g / m².
7. Assessment to Compare the Impact of Products on the Environment
The impact of the product’s environmental impact is calculated for the entire life cycle on various indicators. It gives an overall assessment A / B / C / D / E, to help you easily identify the products with the highest environmental efficiency by comparing products of the same type (T-shirts, pants, backpacks, etc.).
