The MusucBag: Gear you want but don't need
If you answered "yes" or even "maybe" to any of these questions, the unfortunately named MusucBag might just be your ticket to a better tomorrow.
The MusucBag is a new-and-improved version of the Selk Bag, a wearable sleeping bag inspired by garb historically worn by Chilean nomads to brave the elements. After enjoying a limited release for the holidays, the product will see broader distribution in 2010. Its "comfort temperature" is 45 degrees F and its "extreme temperature" is 9 degrees F, so the bag is not meant for sleeping atop a fourteener in the winter -- especially considering the former is based on "a 'standard' adult woman having a comfortable night's sleep." (No word on the comfort level of a New Year's reveler looking to sleep where they drop.) And sadly, there is no fly.
It runs 89 British pounds (about $140) at www.lippiselkbag.co.uk.
