Looking like a great big over-stuffed snowmobile suit, the Lippi Selk’bag is a “sleep wear system” solution to the restrictions of conventional sleeping bags. Named from the Chilean nomads, the Selk’nam, who had a great resilience for the cold the Selk’bag has a hood, arms and legs giving you the ability to move around freely while staying warm inside your bag. On those cold mornings of camping simply standing up without getting out of your bag is hard enough not to mention trying to shuffle or hop around.
The Selk’bag is made with a Nylon shell and a Polyester hollow fiber bonded filling giving it an “extreme temp” rating of -8.4 degrees celcius. It also appears to have zippers to close up at the end of the arms and vent your legs and sides if you get too hot. But, unlike our full-body underwear we’re not seeing an opening to let us pee without taking it all off, which is the primary reason we’re usually getting up when it’s still cold outside in the first place.
