Our camper-designers developed this Arpenaz 20° sleeping bag to ensure comfortable sleep while camping in temperatures close to 20°C. Our objective? To offer a sleeping bag with a full-length zip for easy opening. It can also be converted into a duvet. 5-year guarantee!
All our sleeping bags display temperature ratings tested by an independent laboratory (AITEX) according to European standard EN 13537 11/04/2002. The ideal temperature is the lower limit temperature at which the user of the sleeping bag in a relaxed position is generally in thermal equilibrium and feels neither cold nor hot (determined for a standard woman and under normal conditions of use). Choose your sleeping bag accordingly.
The comfort limit temperature is the temperature limit at which the user of the sleeping bag in a huddled position is generally in thermal equilibrium and feels neither cold nor hot (determined for a standard man and under normal conditions of use).
A sleeping bag does not produce heat but retains the heat produced by the body. If you are exhausted and cold and slip into a cold and 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 a person's resistance to cold (bulk, fatigue, etc.), their gear (insulating mattress, etc.), clothing (naked, underwear, etc.) and the weather conditions (humidity, wind, etc.).
Dress simply (a single layer of clothing is enough). Keep your extremities warm: hats, gloves, socks, heaters, friction, etc. A flask of hot water can be used as a hot water bottle (if there is no risk of its opening accidentally!). Contract your muscles (70% of the energy consumed is converted into heat) but without making movements that would generate a cold draft. In order to wash your sleeping bag less often, we recommend you use a sleeping bag liner.
We picked a â€œdope-dyed" two-tone liner fabric as well as â€œdope-dyedâ€ threads to reduce this product's environmental impact. The threads are spun dyed-died during manufacturing which avoids the use of dye baths. One of the woven threads is spun-dyed, the other is not. Below are the results when compared to a classic liner fabric: 65.8 % less fine particles emitted (PM2.5) 65.6 % less fresh water eutrophication 76,7 % less water eutrophication
The product's environmental impact is calculated over its entire life cycle using various indicators. An overall ABCDE rating is provided to help you easily identify products with the best environmental performance by comparing same type products (t-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.). Decathlon is committed to sharing this environmental impact information. For more information please visit: http://sustainability.decathlon.com/
You can store your sleeping bag by stuffing it into its bag, feet section first. To preserve its loft and ensure its thermal performance, remove it from its bag and store it laid out in a dry place.
