    Sleeping bag with legs?

    I saw a picture of this sleeping bag with legs today and was just wondering if anyone has ever seen or tried something like this?

    You'd still have to have an UQ but you wouldn't need a TQ and it would double as nice warm camp wear. Looks like an interesting idea anyway.

    Nothing quite like walking around in a straitjacket in the woods.

    How about one with arms?

    This might just be the best invention ever. Infinitely times more comfortable than a Hammock! Sleeping lights out on rocks without a sleeping pad even!!! Gotta have one

    The only downside is that your arms are stuck inside the sleeping bag

    Ya, it looks like it would have some down sides. Interesting idea anyway.

    There are a few other "wearable" sleeping bags. Check out the EXPED Dreamwalker series. I really like them as they are very versatile and allow me to eliminate my down jacket. Multi-use gear. Having arm access is important to me, though. Just legs? Not for me.

    That's cool!!! I imagine it wouldn't be too hard to get dressed in the morning without even having to take it off.

    search "Turk" several years ago (up to 5 years ) he had a Super duper bag pants/ parka combo that he reported on . Seems like it was made by Feathered Friends. I don't remember a down side (excuse the pun) other than high price.

    The one bad thing I can think of with those cinch bottom bags is actually opening and closing them in the hammock. I'm not the most flexible person, so it seems like operating it might not work unless I was kneeling.
