10 Really Cool Sleeping Bags

Sleeping bags are an essential piece of kit for any camper. However, they can be pretty boring, the following article is a list of really cool camping bags that will put the Fun into camping. The will be really great to show your friends and who knows, you could end up sharing it with someone.

1. Bear Sleeping Bag

There are customer comments - warnings, really -that one female customer was mounted by a real bear during a camping trip with this sleeping bag. I can see the slogan now - "So lifelike that a bear might rape you..." Kidding aside, this is a really fun, amazing comfortable sleeping bag that's truly one of a kind.

2. Tauntaun Sleeping Bag

For less than a C-note you can count sheep in the belly of a Tauntaun - the strange omnivores from Star Wars. The attached 'light saber' disembowels the Tauntaun and leaves a cozy space for you to slide into. What's funny is thinkgeek.com created this bag as a practical joke...but visitors actually wanted to buy one, and who is thinkgeek.com to deny them? I would personally drop the $100 for one of these in a heartbeat.

3. Sleeping Bag Suits

This is like a Snuggie 2.0. You slip into your sleeping bag to catch a few Z's, and don't even have to take it off to make your way to the outhouse! About $120 scores you a SELK sleeping bag of your own.

For the big ballers with outdoorsman characteristics, this is the sleeping bag for you. Full steam sauna...water jets...misting device... all designed into the sleeping bag. I haven't tried one on myself but it must feel like heaven on earth (no pun intended).

5. Jabba The Hut Sleeping Bag

This sleeping bag is the stuff that nightmares are made of. Then again, I'm pretty sure the boogie monster himself doesn't have the chutzpa to mess with Jabba the Hut. For the record, the head is detachable so you can actually sleep in this thing without suffocating.

6. Sleeping Bag Dress

This is the Transformer of sleeping bags, it starts as a dress but when you're ready it inflates into a sleeping bag. Get a dress and a sleeping bag for the same dollar (who can beat that?). Oh, and don't ask why a guy was chosen to model a sleeping bag dress.

7. Naked Sleeping Bag

Alyona Makkeva has a good heart, even if she does have a dirty mind. Her idea for supporting newlyweds is to sell these "nude" sleeping bags. You can even write love letters right on the pseudo private parts of your significant other. Definitely worth a closer look.

8. Cocoon Hanging Sleeping Bag

I'm just not getting how this could be even remotely comfortable, but in an emergency (which is what Cocoon is designed for) it might be helpful. Especially in snake infested areas. Or if an army of midget zombies are after you. Not on the market (yet) but when it is I'll be the first in line.

9. Laptop Sleeping Bag

Once that campfire dies out, it can get chilly fast. If you travel with your netbook, like I do, that's when you start to worry. Instead of snuggling up to you laptop, get it its own sleeping bag… which is fittingly called a Naptop.

10. Dog Sleeping Bag

Lap dogs lose body heat like drool. So, in a way, it's the humane thing to buy your dog a sleeping bag. In another way, you might be a bit neurotic, but no point in barking up that tree.

      Quite the novelty...I didn't know these types of sleeping bags existed. I believe I'll stick with my traditional one though, lol. Although, the laptop sleeping bag really intrigued me. This lens has be blessed by a Squid Angel.

      Happy Camping ~Marlene
