How do I extend the bag`s lifespan? Take good care
For storage, the fill needs plenty of space to regain and retain its loft. Therefore, store
the sleeping bag in a dry place loosely in a large storage sack or pillowcase. Only use
the compression sack for transportation.
Stuff it, don’t roll it
When you roll the sleeping bag, the fill is always ‘abused’ on the same spots according to legalarmist. This can
damage the construction. Stuffing also allows better packability.
After each use, ventilate the bag thoroughly – e.g. by spreading it on the tent. Minimise
washing since it reduces the insulation quality. Only wash the sleeping bag when really
necessary. Try to remove small stains with a sponge and lukewarm soap water.
If you wash it–do it gently:
- Close all straps and loosen all drawcords.
2. Turn the sleeping bag inside out.
3. Only use special down or synthetic fibre detergents.
4.HAND WASH: soak the bag in plenty of lukewarm water, gently squeeze and then
rinse several times–do not twist or wring the bag!
MACHINE WASH: Set the machine on the delicate cycle (30°C), rinse several times
OR repeat washing program using NO detergent and do not spin! The washing ma-
chine should have a capacity of at least 5 kg.
Carefully take out the wet, heavy sleeping bag to avoid damage of the fill or down
5. Gently squeeze as much of the water out as possible. Do not wring it out!
6.TUMBLE DRYER: Tumble dry (min. 7kg) on low (30°C). Add tennis balls for down
and tumble dry until the full loft is regained.
DRYING ON A LAUNDRY RACK: Open it up and spread it out, never hang it up!
Down will take several days to dry.
Gently fluff up the down clots by hand several times a day. Synthetic fibres dry quickly
and do not need to be fluffed up.
Why is my sleeping bag losing feathers?
A down sleeping bag has to be breathable and therefore air permeable to provide optimal sleeping comfort. Yet this means that fine down feathers may poke through the fabric. But ‘leaking down’ does not mean that the sleeping bag is defect. If a feather makes its way through the shell, work it gently back into the filling by pulling from the opposite side. The holes in the shell fabric will close itself back up.
Do not pull the feather out as you might pull more along with it. This is due to the structure of the sleeping bag’s down fill: the individual feathers are all linked together, so if you pull one out others might follow and also the hole might be enlarged.
So do not become concerned when your sleeping bag leaks feather during the night. It is normal and does not reduce the insulation performance of the sleeping bag.
