We display on all our sleeping bags the comfort temperatures tested by an independent laboratory (AITEX) according to European standard ISO 23537-1 of 21/01/2017. The comfort temperature rating is the lower limit at which the user in relaxed posture is generally in thermal equilibrium and feels neither too cold nor too hot (for a standard woman in normal conditions of use). Choose your sleeping bag according to this criterion.
What is the comfort limit temperature?
The comfort limit temperature is the temperature limit at which a person curled up in the sleeping bag is in general thermal equilibrium, neither too cold nor too hot (determined for a man in normal conditions of use).
What you need to know about temperatures
A sleeping bag does not produce heat, but retains the heat produced by the body. If you are tired and cold and you slip inside a cold, damp sleeping bag, it is very likely that you will feel cold no matter how good your sleeping bag is! These temperatures therefore depend on the person's resistance to cold (body type, fatigue, etc.), equipment (mattress with insulation, etc.), clothing (naked, underwear, etc.) and weather conditions (humidity, wind, etc.).
Tips before getting into your bag
Dress simply (just one layer of clothing is enough). Warm-up your extremities: hats, gloves, socks, hand/feet warmers, friction... A flask of hot water can be used as a hot water bottle (if there is no risk of accidental opening!). Contract your muscles (70% of the energy consumed is converted into heat) but without making any movement generating a cold airstream.
To wash your sleeping bag less often, we recommend you use a sleeping bag liner.
Outer fabric and lining: 100% polyester. Wadding: 100% 300g/sqm polyester padding.
We have reduced our environmental impact on this product
We have improved this product using an eco-design approach in the dyeing of the lining fabric with the so-called "dope dyeing" process.
Textile dyeing requires a lot of water but also produces waste water from the dye baths. To reduce our environmental impact, we use a mass pigmentation process that involves adding the colour pigments when the yarn itself is produced.
Tips for storage and maintenance
Machine wash - 30° max - normal
Do not bleach
Tumble dry - low heat
Do not iron
Do not dry-clean
You can easily store your bag by stuffing it loosely into its cover, feet section first. To maintain its loft, its insulation, remove it from its bag and store it laid out in a dry place.
Restrictions on use
Cannot be twinned!
TESTS AND WARRANTY
Our Quechua global design centre is based in Passy, at the foot of Mont-Blanc in Haute Savoie.
This location makes it a real meeting place for our teams (designers, product managers, engineers, etc) and outdoor sports enthusiasts.
A great asset for designing quality products for your treks, and bringing you all our expertise.
To fulfil your needs, the Quechua products are tested in the countryside under the conditions that you will come across when camping.
Our teams, as well as a tester panel (made up of partners, ambassadors and customers), test products throughout their development until they go to market.
