Have you ever just wanted to just pack up your crap, curl up into a ball under the blankets and hibernate through winter like a bear would? If you’re anything like I am with the cold it’s been a fleeting thought at least once in your life, and now thanks to this nifty little invention that looks like a bear but is in actuality a massive sleeping bag for you to fit inside of!
What’s even better than a single person sleeping bag than a two person sleeping bag? They’ve now begun production on another project that can comfortably fit two people in one of the comfiest bags out there, not to mention the warmest!
Sleeping like a bear doesn’t necessarily come cheap however, with just one of these costing $2,350 it can still seem like leagues away from the sleeping bags the average person can afford, but that won’t always be true!
Inspired by the story of a bear named Bruno, Japanese Craftsman Eiko Ishizawa wanted to mix a little bit of nature with a whole lot of comfort and just as much luxury – and by George he got it!
To understand where he got the inspiration:
Bruno was a Brown Bear who was the very first of his kind spotted on German soil in 170 years, but was subsequently shot when government officials feared he could one day go after humans. Given the nickname Problembär by the Bavarian Minister-President, Bruno was a bear that enjoyed killing more for the sport than to eat, often leaving sheep behind uneaten after being slaughtered, so it’s not as though their fears were unfounded. The Germans had attempted to catch Bruno without killing him on more than one occasion but never managed to pull it off, and eventually he was shot.
Well, I guess one way to pay tribute to a dead bear is by mimicking his skin and having it “eat” people. Either way, it’s still one of the most comfortable sleeping bags I’ve ever seen… Really…. You can see more info and order here.
