Selk'bag Lite - Surf the Web

Do you find sleeping bags too confining? Are you a sleepwalker concerned about frostbite on your late night excursions? Are you jealous of small children who have onesie pajamas with feet? Then do we have something for you.

Introducing the Selk'bag. This Gumby-like, polyester-filled, insulating outfit is a sleeping bag with legs, arms, a hood, and feet. The feet have reinforced nylon soles, and the hands now have no-zip quick release in-and-out access.

The baffled, zip entry snowsuit is now form fitting (previous versions weren't), so it's guaranteed to make your butt look good in camp, your parents' SUV, your grandparents' RV, your girlfriend's dorm room, one of those ice-furniture bars in Norway, a rustic (and presumably uninsulated) cabin, an underheated Williamsburg apartment, or any of the other locations the company recommends. The lightest yet 4G Lite Selk'bag is rated to 45°F, and when you're finally coerced to take it off, it packs into an included compressing sleeping bag stuff sack. Available now, $99,
