Earthing recovery bag

Earthing recovery bag
The Earthing recovery bag was initially designed for Tour de France cyclists and has since become a popular sleeping accessory with athletes and travellers.  Many people also sleep in them at home, enjoying the effect of being cocooned in the Earth's energy.

The bag can be used either as a sleeping bag or as a flat sheet.  Zipped up, it measures 102cm (40") wide by 213cm (84") long, and forms a spacious sleeping bag for one person.  When unzipped it will lie completely flat, measuring 204cm (80") wide by 213cm (84") long, and will accommodate two people sleeping on top of it.

This is a genuine Earthing™ / Earth FX product, and is the latest version of this product.  It is 100% natural cotton, with soft, yet durable conductive silver fibres woven throughout the material.  Colour is natural cotton (off-white).

Please note that there are still a number of retailers selling older versions of this product, and even some non-genuine copies.  These may be smaller in size, a polyester/cotton mix, or dyed rather than natural cotton, and some versions are known to have connection problems.

This product set includes everything you need for use: the recovery bag, a 6m (20ft) coiled cord, and your choice of Earth connection.

Washing and care instructions


The recovery bag may be machine washed at a warm temperature (up to 40°C / 105°F).  It may be tumble dried using a medium setting (up to 65°C / 150°F).  Do not dry clean.  Do not use chlorine bleach or liquid fabric softener, or any detergent containing bleach or fabric softener, as this can impair the conductivity of your bag.

Avoid applying lotions, creams, or oils to the skin before bedtime on parts of your body that will be in contact with the recovery bag.  Such substances oxidise and can impair conductivity.

Connection for North America

The supplied cord fits directly into the 'Ground' pin of a North American type socket, used in Canada, the United States and Mexico.  It can also be used in Central America, the Caribbean, northern South America (Colombia, Ecuador, Venezuela and parts of Brazil), Japan, Taiwan and Saudi Arabia.

Since it is not uncommon for sockets of this type to be missing an Earth connection, this connection option includes a socket tester to verify correct socket wiring.

Note that not all outlet sockets of this type have a 3rd pin for Ground.  Sockets with only 2 pins cannot be used for grounding, and so a grounding rod must be used instead.

Grounding rod kit

If you don't have a properly earthed mains outlet (for example some European houses or a pre-1960s house in the United States), then you can instead use a grounding rod kit to make a connection directly with the ground outside.

A grounding rod is required for use in Denmark where the mains outlets are not compatible with the European connection plugs.

The kit consists of a 0.3m (1ft) stainless steel rod with a 12m (40ft) cord.  The rod is pushed into the ground outside, which makes a good electrical connection to the Earth.  The cord is only 2mm in diameter so it can usually be run through the edge of a window frame with the window closed.
