Tie the footwear well to avoid that the end of the fingers hit against the internal face of the end. In descents, our feet usually go away towards ahead and the end of the toes probably hit against the internal part of the end. They can be very uncomfortable and produce injuries.

Once the foot is in the boot, it is suitable to give blows with the end of the heel against the ground so that the feet go away towards the back part of the boot, and once are there, proceed to adjust the cords in the zone of instep so that they hinder the displacement forwards.

If we apply horse fat, waxes, or silicones to the boot Altus, we will be closing pores of the structure of the skin and the lining, and will be making the boots more impermeable, but they will not breath and the feet will finish

For a correct breathability it is also important the type of socks we use. If we use socks made of wool, natural cotton or other fibers they will retain the sweat and we will have humidity.


After its use, let air them and dry the humidity in a natural form, in the shade and room temperature. Do not approach to radiators, stoves or chimneys because the skins will dehydrate and become stiff, cracking themselves by the zones of flexion.

Eliminate the inner humidity filling up the boot with newspaper. When they are dry, brush them to retire the accumulated dirt mud. Clean them with a wet cloth and let dry again.


Isolation capacity and comfort temperature in a sleeping bag depends on three main features:


Among the raw materials, the most important is the filling, being the one that is able to maintain more heat. There are filling of down and polyester fiber. The first, when it has a high percentage of down (90% down, 10% feather) and a high weight, has a better calorific yield whereas the polyester fiber has low maintenance and long life.


As the sleeping bag is structured according to the standard pro le of the people (mummy type), the bag would isolate better and if it has side partitions it will distribute evenly the hot air around the user.


The person’s complexion will modify the comfort temperature of a sleeping bag in a substantial way. The human body is a heat generator with a constant temperature of 36o ±1o. A small person would occupy less volume inside the bag and so there would be a larger volume of air to warm up. A medium/big complexion person would occupy a larger volume insi- de the bag and so, not having an excessive volume, this would reach higher temperature. A very big complexion person would leave little air volume to warm up so it couldn’t be warmed up before this has escaped to the outside.

NOTE: The user, according to their own complexion, can select the sleeping bag which they require paying attention to the temperatures which the Manufacturer certifies under official laboratories essays.


The hot air inside the bag, due to the human body temperature, escapes to the outside, being renewed by denser cold air than former one. Bag structure and size of the person influence the speed of warming up and of cooling in a continuous convection process.
