4 Jahreszeiten Schlafsack - Der Winterschlafsack fürs ganze Jahr?

4 Jahreszeiten Schlafsack für den Gletscher

Ist ein 4 Jahreszeiten Schlafsack ein Winterschlafsack?

Ein 4 Jahreszeiten Schlafsack wird im Sommer hauptsächlich in höheren Regionen verwendet bzw. Gebieten, in denen die Temperaturen auch im Sommer stark fallen können. Im Sommer kann die Temperatur auch in höheren Bergregionen unter 0 sinken. Wenn Du im Sommer auf einem Gletscher übernachtest und Eis unter dir hast, wird die Frage nach welchem Schlafsack hinfällig - damit Du bei diesem Abenteuer nicht frieren musst, brauchst du unbedingt einen warmen 4 Jahreszeiten Schlafsack und vorallem eine gute Isolierung von unten - sprich Isomatte.
Die Antwort auf die Frage ist also Ja und Nein!

Manche Hersteller sprechen auch von einem 5-Season Schlafsack. Dahinter befindet sich aber dasselbe Modell wie bei einem 4-Jahreszeiten-Schlafsack.

Was bedeutet 4 Jahreszeiten Schlafsack?

Unter bestimmten Bedingungen ist ein 4-Jahreszeiten-Schlafsack für den Einsatz das ganze Jahr hindurch geeignet.

Ein ganzjahres Schlafsack muss vor allem auch im Winter verwendbar sein. Das bedeutet,
seine Isolation muss Temperaturen von -17 °C bis +4°C abdecken können. Sprich - die Komforttemperatur sollte etwa bei -10 °C liegen. Was man unter Komforttemperatur versteht, kannst Du in unserem Blogbeitrag: “Winterschlafsack für den Outdoorbereich, Hilfestellung fürs Schlafsack kaufen” nachlesen.

4 Jahreszeitenschlafsack im Sommer

Der 4 Jahreszeiten Schlafsack ist, wie der Name schon sagt, für das ganze Jahr - unter bestimmten Bedingungen, anwendbar.

Wie lang sollte der Reißverschluss eines 4-Jahres Schlafsackes sein?

Der 4-Jahreszeiten-Schlafsack benötigt sowohl eine sehr gute Isolation als auch eine ausreichende Belüftung, damit es in wärmeren Nächten nicht zu warm wird. Der Zip des Schlafsacks sollte also bis möglichst ¾ der Schlafsacklänge oder besser noch länger öffnungsfähig sein.

Der Zip des Schlafsacks sollte bis möglichst ¾ der Schlafsacklänge öffnungsfähig sein.

Was ist noch wichtig beim Kauf eines 4 Jahreszeiten Schlafsack?

Neben der Temperaturangabe lohnt es sich, Zeit in die Auswahl der richtigen Größe und Form zu investieren. Die bekannteste und häufigste Form für ganzjahres Schlafsäcke ist der Mumienschlafsack. Er ist von oben bis unten körpernah geschnitten und hat eine Kapuze. Manche Modelle verfügen zusätzlich über einen Halswärmer. Durch den eng anliegenden Schnitt am Körper speichert dieser Schlafsack die Körperwärme im Vergleich zu anderen Schlafsack Arten am effizientesten und hat zudem ein kleines Packmaß. 

Weitere Details, auf die Du beim Kauf achten solltest, sind beispielsweise die Kammernkonstruktion, die Qualität und Herkunft der Daune und die Frage, ob das Außenmaterial wasserabweisend und/oder winddicht ist.

Falls Dein Schlafsack koppelbar ist, kannst Du ihn an den Deines Partners anzippen und ihr könnt zu zweit darin schlafen.

Kapuze und Kragen am Winterschlafsack

Kapuze und Kragen sind unerläßlich für einen 4-Jahreszeiten Schlafsack.

Wichtig: Der dickste und isolationsfähigste Schlafsack funktioniert nur dann, wenn Du eine gut isolierende Unterlage hast. Die meiste Wärme wird nämlich über den Boden verloren.

Richtlinien und Merkmale guter 4-Jahreszeiten-Schlafsäcke

  • Ein Schlafsack für vier Jahreszeiten muss  Temperaturen von ca. +4 °C bis ca. -16 °C abdecken können.
  • Die Form ist dem Körper angepasst: Mumienschlafsäcke oder Eiform-Schlafsäcke.
  • Kunstfaserschlafsäcke sind für nasse und feuchte Klimazonen.
  • Geringes Gewicht
  • Daune ist für trockene Kälte/Regionen und hat ein kleineres Packmaß.
  • Achte auf die Bezeichnung 4 Jahreszeiten  Schlafsack oder 5 Jahreszeiten Schlafsack.
  • Geringes Packmaß (Komprimierung)
  • Leicht zu bedienen
  • Verschiedene Größen: Wähle eine Schlafsacklänge entsprechend Deiner Größe aus.
  • Robustes Obermaterial
  • Nachhaltige bzw. recycelte Daune 
kleines Packmaß Winterschlafsack

Winter sleeping bag for extreme temperatures

If you don't want to miss out on outdoor adventures in the cold season, you need a high-quality winter sleeping bag. It protects you reliably from the cold and ensures a restful sleep.

  • But how can you recognize a good outdoor sleeping bag for extreme temperatures?
  • Is your existing model enough?

All this and much more you will learn in the following blog post. We show you what you pay attention to when buying when buying, tell you about Materials and temperature ranges and show you important life hacks. Sounds exciting? It is! So let's get started.

When do I need a winter sleeping bag?

A warm sleeping bag in the winter is an absolute must-have. That much is certain. But in what other situations do you actually need it?

  • Cold winter in the lowlands
  • All seasons in the mountains (here it can get very cold even in summer)
  • When staying overnight in unheated huts
  • If you generally freeze quickly, easily exhausted
  • If you suffer from hypothyroidism
  • Even extremely lightweight people use a down sleeping bag not only in winter

Winter sleeping bag from ALPIN LOACKER

What is important when buying a winter sleeping bag?

In order for your outdoor sleeping bag to serve you well in the winter, you should before buying the following criteria to consider:

  • Size: A winter sleeping bag for men and women should be chosen neither too big nor too small. It is important that you can stretch out comfortably. However, make sure that there is not too much "air" at the sides, so as not to jeopardize the thermal performance.
          
  • Shape: For this reason, you should also pay attention to the shape. A mummy sleeping bag is cut close to the body. This gives you much better insulation performance than the egg shape or rectangular blanket sleeping bags.
     
  • Pack size: Pack size is also crucial. This is one of the reasons why a down sleeping bag is more suitable for winter than other models. You can carry it more easily in your backpack because of the small pack size.
     
  • Weight: The same goes for the weight. Due to the down filling used, these models weigh less. Our Down Pro 4 seasons down sleeping bag weighs just 1520 g in the 170 cm version. Thus, the winter sleeping bag for men and women is particularly easy to transport.
     
  • Material: Synthetic fiber sleeping bags are indeed particularly easy to clean and quick drying due to the materials used. However, their thermal performance is very low. Therefore, we recommend you a down sleeping bag for the winter.

    Our 4-season down sleeping bag is not only toasty warm, but also breathable and 100% free of harmful substances. The outer material made of 20 D ripstop nylon is, just like the sustainable down filling, absolutely environmentally and skin friendly. So you can enjoy the sleeping comfort you deserve: the best.

     
  • Cost: Especially in this day and age, the cost factor naturally plays an important role. Synthetic fiber sleeping bags are of course cheaper than a natural product like down. But always remember: A warm sleeping bag in winter is more important than other equipment. Especially since you can use a high-quality down sleeping bag for years with good care.

    Thus, the acquisition costs are put into perspective. While cheaper models often show extreme heat loss after the second season, our Down Pro 4 keeps you toasty warm for years.

What does the temperature range mean for sleeping bags?

There are up to three different temperature ratingswhich you can see on the Sleeping bag find:

1. comfort temperature:
This value is calculated for a "norm woman" (25 years, 60 kg, 1.60 m) who is just not cold. As an example: In a sleeping bag with comfort temperature 0° can still sleep comfortably without freezing.

2. limit temperature:
This value shows the temperature at which a "standard man" (25 years, 70 kg, 1.73 m) does not freeze in the sleeping bag.

3. temperature range by season:

  • Summer sleeping bags: comfort temperature above 12 °C.
  • Three-season sleeping bags: comfort temperature down to 0 °C
  • Winter sleeping bags: comfort temperature below 0 °C

Are winter sleeping bags automatically heavier than other models? 

"No." It depends largely on the materials processed. Sleeping bags are filled with either synthetic fiber or down.

One Down is a small delicate feather with soft keel and very soft and long arranged feather branches. They are located under the cover feathers of birds. Down is much lighter than synthetic fibers and warms proportionally better than synthetic fibers.

Synthetic fiber needs namely much additional materialto get to the same comfort range temperature as down.

This means that a sleeping bag filled with synthetic fiber becomes heavier and heavier to achieve the same insulating properties. Thus, a down sleeping bag is often more suitable in winter.

Outdoor sleeping with the right winter sleeping bag

Why is a down sleeping bag best for winter?

As you know Down a special ability. They give you despite their low weight perfect warmth. Therefore, they are ideal for thermal insulation in winter sleeping bag for men and women.

High quality Goose and duck down provide the best thermal insulation in relation to volume and weight. The soft filling is very light, cuddly and highly compressible.

As you have already seen, this results in following advantages:

  • Down sleeping bags are not only lighter with the same insulation performance compared to synthetic fiber sleeping bags.
  • They are also more compressible and thus have a smaller pack size.

The rule is:

If warmth, weight and pack size play a role, you should only use down sleeping bags.

The sleeping climate in a down sleeping bag is much more comfortable, because the fluffy feathers are very breathable and are also excellent absorb body moisture can. The only disadvantage of down is that it loses its insulating effect when it gets wet. The down collapses and clumps.

However, if you use your down sleeping bag in winter at sub-zero temperatures, you don't have to worry about that. By the way, you should not use down sleeping bags in rain without shelter. The same applies to heavy dew.

You may wonder how you Lump formation in general avoid can.

Expert Tip: In winter and any other season, shake out your outdoor sleeping bag thoroughly after getting up and let it dry, preferably hanging in the sun. If there is no sunshine in sight, simply choose a dry place.

*PFC - What are PFC? 

PFC is an abbreviation for per- and polyfluorinated chemicals, - also known as PFAS (per- and polyfluorinated alkyl substances) or PFT (perfluorinated surfactants).

These group of substances comprises more than 3000 different substances. PFCs do not occur naturally. Chemically, the organic compounds consist of carbon chains of different lengths in which the hydrogen atoms are completely (perfluorinated) or partially (polyfluorinated) replaced by fluorine atoms.

PFC are hardly degradable and therefore remain in the environment for a very long time. Some PFCs accumulate in the environment and in organisms and are also harmful to human health.

Conclusion

At which criteria should you use as a guide when buying your ideal sleeping bag? In principle, it's simple: the sleeping bag that comes with a comfort temperature of zero degrees is the smaller Pack size and the smaller weight is the "better" one.

If it also has a robust and water-repellent ripstop nylon, you are on the safe side.
