How to Take Care of Down Sleeping Bag

Washing down products

We do not know why most of the people think that down products can not be washed. It turns out that not only can but must. After several nights in the sleeping bag, we must face the unpleasant odors emitted from fat but the body is transferred to the down that can perder volume. The clean duvet earns more swelling power and feels better.

How to do it? First you have to buy a special product for washing the blanket. We recommend Granger’s product that is available on our website. It is forbidden to use ordinary detergent and fabric softener. We advise to wash our bags in hand, in the bath, and not in the machine. The bath should be filled to the level to immerse the bag there, then add the amount of product defined by the manufacturer. The water temperature should not exceed 35 ° C. The sleeping bag should be submerged in a bag, and once under water, we must get him out: in this way it was possible to “evacuate” the majority of the air; with this action we do not lose more time to evacuate air from each room. Wash the sleeping bag length. It is recommended to change the water as often as you think useful, but 1-4 times should suffice.

Rinse the sleeping bag as long until we’re sure it remains a single gram of laundry. If you wash the sleeping bag in the washing machine (which is not recommended), rinse it several times, set spinning at the slower level. If you wash the sleeping bag in hand, after draining the bathtub, do not wring out the sleeping bag but bend like sleeping pad (?) In order to wring the most possible water.

If you dry the product in a dryer, discontinue drying several times to undo the balls formed by the wet blanket. Placing in the machine tennis balls can help but is not necessary. Drying may take several hours even. If you choose the drying, we also recommend you to undo the balls formed by the down. The dry down can not be balls. Thereby reducing this phenomenon is to put the sleeping bag on the ground and enter it with the palm of the hand. With the traditional drying the sleeping bag can be dried several days (2 to 5), depending on the amount of fluff.

For washing down jackets, feel free to use the washing machines.

Washing clothes with synthetic insulation Climashield

Our Climashield jackets can be washed in accordance with instructions provided. Temperature: 30 ° C. Do not use softeners.That’s all!

Renewal of the DWR layer

The DWR layer implementation on Pertex fabrics factory degrades after several washes or after a long period of use. To renew, it recommends Nikwax down sleeping bags, available in PimaSleepingBags. Follow the advice of use provided by the manufacturer.

Use in road

Our products are not fragile, but however there are some simple rules to follow to prolong their lifespan. First, if the sleeping bag is in contact with moisture, always to dry in the sun if possible. If you have put in the cover the damp sleeping bag, then it is recommended to unfold and to dry at first opportunity. If the air is moist and the sleeping bag can not dry it is also recommended to unfold it breathes.

As regards the compression of the fluff, the cover is to be used. But the duvet rather be decompressed, therefore we recommend to unfold once a day if possible. Usually this process takes place when we sleep in the sleeping bag. But if we do not need, you should unfold. If you have room in your backpack, you can put it in bulk sleeping bag so that it fills the empty seat.

It is not recommended to use the sleeping bag directly on the ground. First for insulation reasons: the down compressed by the weight of the body not well insulated, so we recommend using the karrimats or mattresses. Secondly, even if the fabrics we use to manufacture our products are resistant, the floor can damage the external transverse seams destroying fluff rooms.

For the life of the sleeping bag and also to avoid washing too often we recommend using the wipes Silk inside the sleeping bag.These wipes recover the majority of dirt from the body and the sleeping bag stays clean longer. We can get the same effect by sleeping with thermal suits or simply shirt. We suggest sleeping with socks which will limit the wear on the bottom of the sleeping bag.

Storage of down products

Here the rule is simple: the down must be decompressed as possible. If you do not have space it is possible to store the sleeping bag in our bag in canvas fabric. However if it is possible, we recommend unfold the bag in a dry room.
Down the Sealing

The fact that the fabric is tight down does not mean that pen will never find a passage between its fibers. First: the feathers overtaking is quite normal: the fabrics we use are ultralight and this phenomenon is the price we pay for equipment that weigh almost nothing. Second in a gram of fluff there are many feathers. Verily much. Depending on what we take into account all the components, even small ones, or only real feathers, down to a gram on account of 400 to 800. In the model Lite Line 200, if one takes on average 500 feathers, we’ll have 100 000. we should not forget that the feathers are exceeding low quality feathers with rigid rod – this phenomenon therefore does not deteriorate the quality of the thermal insulation of down.

If you see a feather above the sleeping bag, do not remove it. It can train with it more than feathers and enlarge the space between the fibers. It must grab the pen from inside the bag and to go inside the room. The place where the fabric structure was damaged can be rectified with the finger, it will help the fibers regain their unified structure.

We must not forget that the feathers than do not make holes in the fabric. They exceed the fibers between the majority found after leaving structure.
