This particular edition of the Forclaz sleeping bag is superbly compatible with sub-zero temperatures.
Product is overall good but, needs improvement in stiching
Usually a big decathlon fan but extremely disappointed with this sleeping bag. I was cold on a 9 degrees night and the material feels very cheap and uncomfortable to sleep in. Will be returning this item. My friend bought a 20 pound bag from Amazon, and I am sad to say it was better quality than mine.
Hi, thanks for taking the time to review our Forclaz Trekking Sleeping Bag 0c.
I'm sorry to hear that you had a bad experience with this product, the nights in Scotland can definitely be chilly, even in Mid-summer!
However the bag should be able to keep you warm in such conditions, to be honest I'm a little surprised, because I have a 0 degree rated Forclaz bag, although the Trek 900 Down version and in similar conditions find it too warm if anything!
I have a couple of suggestions to help keep you warm, such as using an appropriate insulating sleeping mat such as our Trek 100 Forclaz Foam Mattress. If there is a lot of space inside the bag this can also prevent the insulation from working properly, you can fill any excess space with spare clothes which should help. Wearing a thin hat, some warm socks and maybe a thin thermal base layer could also help. Also using a sleeping bag liner can improve slightly the thermal properties of the bag and also help keep it clean.
That being said, if you are unhappy with the bag I would invite you to pop in to your closest store, where I'm sure they could find a solution for you.
I'm sorry again to hear about your bad experience, I hope you managed to enjoy the rest of your trip!

All our sleeping bags display the temperature ratings, tested by an independent laboratory (AITEX), in accordance with the European NF ISO 23537 standard (2017).The comfort temperature is the lower limit at which the user, in a relaxed pose, is in overall 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 measure.
Limit temperature: temperature at which the user huddled up in the sleeping bag is generally in thermal equilibrium and feels neither too cold nor too hot (defined for a standard man and in normal conditions of use).We recommend you use an insulating mattress to optimise your thermal comfort.This sleeping bag is filled with synthetic wadding to guarantee performance even in damp conditions.
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 (bulk, fatigue, etc.), equipment (mattress with insulation, etc.), clothing (naked, underwear, etc.) and weather conditions (humidity, wind, etc.).
Dress simply (1 layer of clothing is enough).Keep your head, hands and feet warm: use hats, gloves, socks, bed warmers, rubbing, etc.A flask filled with hot water can be used as a hot water bottle (if it can't open by accident !)Contract your muscles (70% of the energy consumed is transformed into heat). However you should do this without moving as this can cause draughts of cold air.Use a sleeping bag liner to maximise the heat inside your sleeping bag.
"Generous" mummy shape: wide at the shoulders and tighter around the feet to optimise thermal insulation (no loss of heat) and remain compact, while keeping relative freedom of movement.Width at the shoulders 72 cm, height at the feet 34 cm in size L.Ergonomic hood with drawcord.Two double-slider side zips, lined with a flap (tube) in anti-cold wadding (thermal bridges), side openings. Easy mechanical ventilation.
Size S 1450g, users up to 1.60m. Folded dimensions: L 42 cm Ø 19.5 cm. Volume 12.5 litres.Size M 1550g, users between 1m60 and 1m70. Folded dimensions: L 42 cm Ø 20.5 cm. Volume 13.9 litres.Size L 1670 g, user between 1.70m and 1.85m. Folded dimensions: L 42 cm Ø 21.5 cm. Volume 15.2 litres.Size XL 1785 g; user height 1.85 m to 2 m. Folded dimensions: L 42 cm Ø 22.5 cm. Volume 16.7 L.Volume and dimensions can vary according to the pressure applied to the product.
Volume and dimensions can vary according to the pressure applied to the product.For your comfort, try out your bag before buying it to make sure you have the right size. The advantage of a mummy-type sleeping bag is that the weight/volume ratio and thermal comfort are optimised. With a fitted bag, there is less volume to heat (saves your energy). However, this type of sleeping bag can limit your freedom of movement, especially when the zips are closed.
