Wrapping yourself in a sleeping bag is all very snuggly, but have you ever tried dancing to gingangooly without unzipping yourself? It's not easy. In fact, unless you fancy caterpillaring around the campsite, trying to do anything other than sleep in a traditional sleeping bag (no nudging at the back) is virtually impossible. Step forward - and we mean that quite literally - the incredible MusucBag Classic.
‘But wait! We’ve seen this before!’ we hear you cry. Indeed the MusucBag has been around some years. But this latest update sees a whole host of upgrades and refinements for yet more comfort and practicality. But we’re getting ahead of ourselves...
Available in Black...
As you can see, this revolutionary wearable sleeping bag is more of a suit than a bag, giving maximum mobility and keeping you warm as toast. Snuggled into a MusucBag Classic you can move your limbs freely, stand up, walk, cross your legs, do the David Brent dance – whatever. Finding a comfy sleeping position is easy. Cramp, what cramp?
But it's not just about keeping warm on your next polar expedition or preventing your devil's-horn hand from freezing off at some festival campsite. The MusucBag Classic is ideal for loafing about in the house, especially if you're sick of eye-watering heating bills. Think of it as your new, improved dressing gown.
Invented by Chilean industrial designer, Rodrigo Alonso Schramm (not him again), the bag features a cosy integral hood, plus reversible zips, so you can unzip your arms with ease whenever you need to shoo away penguins, remove icicles from your nose or switch channels. Who'd have guessed dressing up as a futuristic Teletubby could be so practical.
But what's it like in terms of cosy-ocity? Well its lining is made from soft-touch nylon with a polyester hollow fibre bonded filling. And whilst we're not entirely sure what that means, we do know that each MusucBag Classic can withstand temperatures as low as -13°C. Brrr-illiant!
Available in blue or black and featuring a reinforced crotch area(?) and higher quality zips, this innovative suit is set to become a must-have accessory for outdoorsy-types and couch potatoes everywhere. You'll never want to clamber inside an old school sleeping bag again. Unless it's with Barbara Windsor circa '72. Oops, sorry...we just dozed off in our MusucBag again. Zzzzz

I bought this for my roommate as a thank you present and she is thrilled - she wears it both around the house and for camping. Fantastic.
