Wearable sleeping bag

A lot of our makers send in camping gear and equipment, while they’re not “MAKEs” there seems to be a lot of makers who camp – so when I saw this wearable sleeping bag I couldn’t help but put it on the blog, it’s awesome! – [via] Link.

  1. Obviously the designer has never been camping, making this obviously critical omission.

    When you crawl out of the tent at 5am to take a leak in the nearby bush, it’s freezing cold. Crawling out of the sleeping bag is a horror. You’d love to take it with you, but you can’t walk in it..

    Then there comes this. You’d think, a genius idea. You just walk out in the sleeping bag.

    But then you need to peel yourself out of it, expose your whole torso and a lot of lower body, just to get the essentials outside. One simple zipper and you’d be “home”, but no. Cool idea entirely spoiled by such a tiny omission.

  2. Hi there,

    this is not a knew kind of sleepingsack…
    The German Bundeswehr (Army) uses such sacks for a few periods of time… Its for Combatlike sleeping… Always be prepared and so…

  3. Saw this thing at an expo and tried it on. Pretty fun but not practical in very cold temps, as the bag separates your extremities from your core. The thing is bulky as is, and trying to fill in more around the limbs makes it harder to lie down comfortably. They said they were working on a solution to this problem.

  4. This is to gloves as a normal sleeping bag is to mittens.

    Thus the same trade offs, but each useful in its own way.

    I agree about the need for a fly (and a flap a la the union suit).
