Selk'bag Sleepwear

This wearable sleeping bag is an excellent solution for those who are uncomfortable in traditional sleeping bags. Velcro on the waist, wrists, and ankles prevents bag movement and excess bulk. Quick release closure on the sleeves allows you to easily free your hands so you can cook, play cards, or do other chores around camp while staying warm.
