Arctic sleeping bags of two different designs were tested simultaneously over a period of four weeks using four test subjects sleeping overnight in the DREO cold chamber. Tests were conducted at ambient temperatures of -20 deg C and -40 deg C to compare the thermal protection afforded by each type of bag during repeated use. No significant differences between types of sleeping bag were found.
