ANNIVERSARY EXPEDITION

100 years after Roald Amundsen set his skies towards the South Pole, Stein P.

Aasheim, Vegard Ulvang, Jan-Gunnar Winther, and Harald Dag Jølle did the same.

The expedition followed the 1911 route from the ice edge in the Ross Sea to the Pole,

with the goal of reaching the Pole on day 100 years after Amundsen. The purpose of

the anniversary expedition was to set light the important aspects of Norwegian polar

history, and also focus on current environmental and climate challenges.

The different shapes all have their different advantages and disadvantages.

That’s why it’s important to choose the right shape to the intended use.

There is a risk of health damage hypothermia.

Limitations in the standard:

The temperature standard EN 13537 does not apply to children’s sleeping bags. Children have different

physiological regulation than adults. The temperature stated is only a reference to the corresponding adult size bag.

Children should add an extra safety margin, and adults are responsible for keeping children in their group warm.

For longer trips and expeditions an extra safety margin should always be applied. The user is responsible for testing

the gear’s temperature limits prior to such trips.

WHEN TO USE THE SLEEPING BAG IN REAL LIFE?

It is important to know that the temperature rating is valid for an average person, in an average situation. When you are out

hiking, no single trip is the same. People react differently to cold, our daily shape varies and the surroundings will change

Thelma-Test

”Objective testing of sleeping bags by Thelma AS – now Thelma-Test – was started as


partners. By means of a thermal manikin that simulated the heat production of a

human being and a test laboratory where the thermal conditions could be controlled

in an accurate way, the thermal insulation of sleeping bags was measured. Based

on insulation values for men and women a model was developed to predict expected

comfort levels for sleeping bags. In 2002 a new European standard (EN 13537) for

sleeping bag testing was issued and Thelma calibrated their thermal manikin for

testing according to this new standard. During the actual test, the manikin is placed

inside a sleeping bag on top of an elevated wooden plate on an insulating mattress.

The test is performed in a stable temperature atmosphere where also humidity and

wind conditions are maintained stable, until the manikin’s “skin temperature” has

stabilized at 34°C ( + /- 0.1).


of three measurements and the recommended temperature limits are determined

from this. Since 2002 Thelma-Test have tested more than two thousand sleeping

bags from more than forty different manufacturers all over the world. In Europe

today, similar testing according to EN 13537, are only performed at three other

laboratories.”
