Requirements for sleeping bags -- Part 1: Thermal and dimensional requirements

ISO 23537-1:2016 specifies the requirements and test methods as well as provisions for labelling of adult sized sleeping bags for use in sports and leisure time activities.

ISO 23537-1:2016 does not apply to sleeping bags intended for specific purpose such as military use and extreme climate zone expedition. It does not apply to sleeping bags for children or babies.

NOTE 1 No prediction model exists for the determination of the limiting temperatures based on the thermal resistance of the sleeping bag for children and babies. Moreover, such a model for testing cannot be developed because the necessary controlled sleep trials with children or babies in climatic chambers are, out of ethical reasons, not permitted.

NOTE 2 The limit temperature for extreme climate conditions is seen to be −20 °C.

ISO 23537-1:2016 describes the method for the assessment of the performance in steady-state conditions of a sleeping bag with regard to the protection against cold.

NOTE 3 Sleeping bags without homogeneous fillings designed to provide local extra insulation in certain parts pose issues with the calibration and/or test procedure. Ongoing work continues to provide suitable means of establishing temperature ratings.
