Over deze norm
This European Standard specifies general requirements and test methods as well as provisions for labelling and the information supplied by the manufacturer of adult sleeping bags for use in sports and leisure time activities. This document does not apply to sleeping bags intended for specific purpose such as e. g. military use and extreme climate zone expedition. It does not apply to sleeping bags for children or babies either because for them no prediction model exists for the determination of the limiting temperatures out of the thermal resistance of the sleeping bag. Such a model cannot be developed because the necessary controlled sleep trials with children or babies in climatic chambers are, out of ethical reasons, not permitted. This standard describes the method for the assessment of the performance in steady state conditions of a sleeping bag with regard to the protection against cold provided. It applies to sleeping bags for an adult person.
