The sleeping bag Neosphere-15 ° Deuter is a product that surprised me for its comfort and isolation. That is, it achieved its purpose with excellence.
The only discomfort that occurred was when exposed at warmer temperatures, because the Neosphere -15º gets quite hot. If the environment is not cold enough, it gets really hot. Therefore, it not only isolates but also heats up. It is notable that the goose feather layer makes all the difference.
Although it was not placed in its imitation, it behaved well with temperature of -6ºC, causing no discomfort with the cold.
Zippers slide very easily, but sometimes they stick to nylon, but that’s not a problem at all. It also has a small internal pocket that is used to store the compactor. And, taking into account its high performance, the weight of the product can be considered light. And its volume is satisfactory.
The Neosphere-15 is considered a sleeping bag for extreme conditions, including high mountain. I found it ideal for trekking in the Andes Mountains, being very effective in cold conditions.
Its elasticity attracts attention, it stays right in the body, but allows movements with ease. In addition, it has less air void space, thus ensuring greater heating. It is, without a doubt, a sleeping bag for extreme cold. And give the account.
The sleeping bag Neosphere-15 ° Deuter is about the cost of R $ 2,000.00.
