This probably should go in the gear forum, but as the product is in Chile', and I haven't been able to see where it was even possible to buy it. Anyway I think it is more of an amusement than an item you'd probably buy.

I stumbled across an site talking about this bag and I thought it was worth mentioning. It's called the Selk' bag and it has arms and legs.
You wear it and can walk around looking like the Mitchelin tire man.

Quite funny, not as effcient due to the larger surface.
Well my old army sleepingbag had arms and the foot-section could be zipped open to allow the sleepingbag to function as a jacket.
Very good when I was on sentry duty on cold nights or when sleeping with boots on during patrols (my feet are so big that when I wear boot these would only go 2/3 into the foot section, making me unable to enter the sleepingbag fully)

If you want one of your old army bags I saw them on a website for $14.00.
That would be 85.862 DKK or 11.5216 Eur.
(If I can find the site again)

Thank you Dropkick, but I think I've got three smouldering somewhere in our dungeon :fisheye: I've moved to the HelSport Dovre sleeping bag - Much warmer and comfortable.

Ok, all you lightweight nuts, look the other way for a second....

For anyone interested in a 0 degree bag, for an occasional outing into snow country, I just bought three new bags from Sierra Trading Post.

Alps Mountaineering 0 degree bag for $38.95 each.

Not light, but cheap. If you are looking to pick up a bag for a once or twice a year coldweather trip, this may be the right price for you.

I actually bought a long for myself, and two regular length for my kids. We tried them last weekend on a snow trip, and they worked great. I even had a bit of room in my bag, and I am a big guy. Me like cheap. Ugh.

I actually use a 0 degree bag year round.
And a fleece blanket and a sheet
(whispering so the ultralighters won't hear me and hold me in contempt)
I just vary how much of me I cover with it.
