Makalu III Light Sleeping Bag - Size L
Filtered by translation missing: Loading reviews…
Best price/performance sleeping bag L size

I had many question marks in my mind before ı get it. It was not goose down, how is outer fabric, is it going to loose feathers from stiches etc. 1100 gram duck down works perfectly, only issue is in chest area there were less down however you can make it properly with your hand in a few seconds. Asymetric cut works excellent. You dont need to heat empty space. I am 1.80tall and 82kg. I feel very relax inside this sleeping bag. Also ı used up to 4000meter camps in -35 degree celcius, with only liner it was toasty. Outer fabric is thin but it will work. Also feathers did not go out from stiches. Only issue is inside of the sleeping bag is not box chambered designed. Because of this downs can go up and down. With this price, weight, protection it is impossible to find similiar sleeping bag in the market. I think ı am going to use it for a long time. Thank you Simond.

Washing process

Hello, I would like to know how can I wash my Simond Makalu 3 at home.

Looks nice

Will use in comming months...and update then ...fill weight shown on the manufacturer ( simond ) website is 1100 g for size XL but on decathalon the same fill weight is shown for size L , Correct fill weight for size L should be displayed since only size L is available on decathalon

Hi AP,

Thank you for reaching out regarding your doubt about the Simond Makalu III down sleeping bag.

You are right, there is a mismatch between and But fortunately the information on Indian website is correct. You can refer to for the same.

I will reach out to the UK website team and get the information corrected.

Once again thanks for highlighting.

I hope you get to take the sleeping bag out soon. I recently used this bag on the base of Mount Yunam and was too hot in fact (temp were -10 to -12 at night). So yeah I can say you will have a nice cozy time during your expeditions. Just make sure you have a thick mattress underneath to increase ground insulation and a synthetic liner to increase the life of sleeping bag.

All the best for your upcoming adventures!

Přesně tohle potřebuji

Ve dne při 0 stupních je v něm teplo i jen tak na nahé tělo, v noci při - 7 je již třeba tričko a kalhoty. Ale jsem hubená a tohle bylo moje první zimní kempování.

Die Verarbeitung macht einen guten Eindruck, Material fühlt sich beim schlafen sehr gut an, das der Schlafsack nicht ganz geöffnet werden kann hab ich nur als kleinen Nachteil gesehen, da der Reißverschluss doch sehr weit aufgeht und man somit dir Wärme gut kontrollieren kann, der Vorteil ist natürlich das er die Wärme durch die Bauweise besser halten kann. Das Packmaß ist durch die Menge an Daunen entsprechend groß. Ich hatte ihn bei einer Außentemperatur um die -7 Grad in Verwendung, einmal im Zelt mit Isomatte direkt auf Schnee und einmal im unbeheizten Winderraum. Mit leichter bekleidung im Zelt war es zu Kalt, da die Isomatte der Kälte nicht standhielt, hier ist zu empfehlen mit mehreren Isomatten zu Arbeiten. Im Unbeheizten Winterraum in Unterwäsche, war es angenehm warm. Leider fehlen mir Vergleiche mit einem 800€ Schlafsack!

J'ai remarqué que la protection du menton n'était pas géniale , la fermeture éclair vient constamment en contact avec lui . La pochette intérieure est bien trop petite pour y glisser un téléphone portable actuel. Le sac de couchage est très bien dimensionné en taille L , je mesure 1.72 m et je peux dormir sur le côté sana problèmes et mettre les vêtements de jour au chaud pour le lendemain. Il est facilement compactable dans son sac.

Super sac de couchage, très efficace contre le froid extérieur. Dommage qu' il n existe pas en modèle plus long pour les personnes mesurant plus que 1,85 m.

Un rapport qualité/prix imbattable, chaleur et confort au rendez vous. Utilisez avec des températures avoisinant les-5, j'avais presque trop chaud, combiné à un drap de soie, c'est une merveille. Seul point négatif à mon goût, mais sans surprise non plus, la fragilité du textile faites très attention, parfois de petite plume sortent.. Tant pis. Aucun problème d'humidité, très respirant.

comme d'habitude,les temperatures d'usage sur ce type de produit sont surestimees;mais lorsque l'on en tient compte à priori,on a ce que l,on cherche:un outil permettant de dormir plus ou moins confortablement jusqu'à -5°C {avec un sursac léger).Par ailleurs,le rapport qualité-prix est ahurissant

Temperature rating

We display on all our sleeping bags, the temperature ratings tested in an independent lab (AITEX) based on European Standard EN 13537 (2016).The "comfort temperature rating" is the lower limit when a user in the sleeping position is generally in thermal equilibrium and is neither hot or cold (based on a "standard" woman in normal conditions of use).Choose your sleeping bag based on this feature.

What you must know about temperature ratings

A sleeping bag does not generate heat, but "maintains" heat generated by body. If you are exhausted and cold and you slip in to your freezing and damp sleeping bag, you risk staying cold whatever the sleeping bag's features!These temperature ratings therefore depend on a person's resistance to the cold (build, fatigue, etc.), on their equipment (mattress that insulates from the ground, etc.), on their clothing (naked, underwear, etc.), and on weather conditions (damp, wind, etc.).

A rating for comparing products environmental impact

Product's environmental impacts are calculated throughout its life cycle and with different indicators. An overall score (ABCDE) is attributed to help you easily identify the products with the best environmental performance by comparing products of the same type with one another (T-shirts, trousers, backpacks, etc.).Decathlon chose to apply this voluntary environmental labelling scheme.To get more information:
