Winter is coming, and the last thing anyone wants or needs is to look like an idiot with nothing more than an old, boring and functional sleeping bag. If you’ve been looking to step up your sleeping bag game (and seriously, who isn’t?) we’ve got just the thing for you.
Behold: A sleeping bag crafted to look just like a real life bear. Believe it or not, this “Great Sleeping Bear” sleeping bag is gaining a whole lot of traction on social media, if only for the sheer ridiculousness of the design and the shockingly high price-tag that accompanies it. You might think that a quirky product like this would come cheap, but this bad boy costs an insane $2,350. It is, after all, handmade.
Designed by a Dutch artist named Eiko Ishizaw, the full-sized sleeping bag was “inspired by a bear from Bavaria that caused a ruckus within the town in 2006 who was eventually hunted down.” As a result, Eiko decided to create the sleeping bag “as sort of an ode to the bear.”
The product description reads in part:
The bear sleeping bag is an incredibly realistic plush sleeping bag that looks just like a real bear. The sleeping bag even has a bear head that’s attached to the sleeping bag where your head pops out of, which you can leave unzipped to get some oxygen, or you can zip it all the way up and pretty much close yourself off into the mouth of the bear as if you were just eaten by the bear. The sleeping bag also has a zipper that runs all the way around the bear’s body just like a normal sleeping bag would work which is how you get into the bag. Certainly one of the most unique sleeping bags ever made, the bear sleeping bag is sure to be the envy of every camper in your group.
So sure, your fellow campers might be envious, but we’re not so sure that dressing up as a bear out in the wilderness is the wisest of ideas with hunters and, perhaps, amorous bears out on the prowl.
