Put an end to uncomfortable tight-fitting sleeping bags with an Outwell® Cosy. Its brand new egg-shape design provides a lot more extra space in

Outwell Egg-shape Cosy which to stretch out while maintaining cosiness by minimising cold spots – sheer bliss! And it comes with Outwell’s latest features like the new pillow pocket in the luxurious Comfort Hood, to add to the comfort.

The range comprises two bags: the Cosy 250 and the Cosy 350. Both sleeping bags are made using a 300T hidden ripstop polyester microfibre shell with a super soft 230T brushed polyester microfibre lining to sandwich the two layers of Isofill in an offset construction. The three-season Cosy 250 has 950g fill and the three/four season Cosy 350 has 1,150g fill.

Shared features include: a full-length zip baffle; left/right zip together, two-way, easy glide zip system with auto-lock; inside pocket; and a cap compression sack for storage.

Like the other eight new sleeping bag ranges that Outwell has introduced for 2012, the Cosy benefits from the latest dashing new colours that add flair to the bedroom – the Cosy 250 comes in green/grey and the Cosy 350 comes in purple/grey (image right). And both sleeping bags are tested in accordance with the European standard EN 13537, and come with full recommended temperature ratings.

Temperature and season ratings To determine temperature limits of sleeping bags objectively, the European Standard EN13537 on requirements for sleeping bags specifies the use of a computer-controlled thermal manikin similar in shape and size to the human body. A sleeping bag containing a manikin is placed inside a temperature-controlled climate chamber and tested in accordance with a prescribed procedure to determine the thermal insulation properties of the bag. Recommended temperature limits are based on the insulation properties measured and on knowledge of how the human body reacts to thermal conditions during sleep. (All double bags are tested with one manikin only and therefore the temperatures are most likely to be different from the one stated if two people are using the bags).

On each of our sleeping bags we quote the recommended temperature ratings for the following:
Tcomfort – lower comfort limit in standard use (woman)
Tlimit – lower limit when curled up in standard use (man)
Textreme – lowest extreme temperature for survival (woman)
Tmax – upper comfort limit without over heating (man)

Recommended temperature ratings can be found against each adult sleeping bag on our website.We also give every adult Outwell sleeping bag a season rating as a rough guide to its potential use. These are:
Season 1: For use in the summer months only
Season 2: For use from late spring through to early autumn
Season 3: For use from spring right through autumn
Season 4: For use throughout all seasons but more suited to colder conditions
