It had to come - a sleeping bag that you wear, sleep like a star-fish and walk around in if you want to!

The SELK - BAG, as tested by the European EN 13537 standard, can withstand a temperature as low as -8.4 degrees Celcius. (Only drawback for pererginos is that it weighs between 1.7 and 1.9kgs.)

Also on this fun site: Luggage scales - bicycle indicators - emergency charger - and many more wacky wonders.

Check them out on the "I Want one of Those" website. (Click on Great Outdoors)

I DEFINATELY want one of those!!

I always thought that there was a gap in the market for adult sized fleecy sleepsuits. (Those of you who don't see the attraction have never spent your holidays in a freezing, damp cottage with an erratic electricity supply in the north of Scotland!!)

I loved one of the reviews on the website - from a Scottish lass:

This is undoubtedly the best 'silly yet practical' purchase I've ever made. The combination of cosyness and freedom is quite wonderful. How many sleeping bags can you show off your break dancing moves?!

Down bag (90/10 duvet) of 700 fills with 180 g (6.34 ounces) of filling. Mummy-shaped structure, ideal when you are looking for lightness with great heating performance.
