Product

Q: What are some of the most common uses for the Selk'bag?

A: From indoors to outdoors, there are literally thousands of uses for the Selk'bag.  Here are some of our favorite uses and places for the Selk'bag:

Camping - Whether under the stars, in a tent, in a camper or RV, the Selk'bag loves being outdoors.
Sleepovers - What kid wouldn't love a Selk'bag Kids for sleepovers?  Bring on the surprise pillow fights!

Hammocks - Perhaps the most perfect combination since peanut butter and chocolate - hammocks and Selk'bags!

Q: What is the texture on the feet, and can I wear it hiking with no additional footwear?

A: The feet use a tough nylon material for easy walking.  They are not, however, meant for hiking.  The Selk'bag is a wearable sleeping bag first and foremost.  Just remove the booties so you can wear your own boots with the bag!

Q: Does each Selk'bag come with a Selk'bag carrier bag?

A: Yes!  Each Selk'bag comes with a "stuff sack" that is used to not only compress the bag but for carrying and stowing.  While we recommend that long-term storage is done in a laundry-type bag with good ventilation and space, the stuff sack is perfect for travel and stow away. 

 

Selk'bag temperature ratings

Q: What do the temperature ratings mean and what is ISO 23537?

A: ISO 23537 is the common sleeping bag testing standard adopted and strictly enforced by the US since 2017 (Previously known as EN13537), so we decided to test our products according to the toughest standard in existence.  

Ratings are based on a person wearing one long underwear layer and a beanie, sleeping on an insulated surface. Everyone's body and sleep comfort differ, and conditions of use (posture, clothing, sleeping pad R-value, wind, humidity, etc.) affect total insulation, so ISO ratings are intended as a guideline to help you compare products, rather than a guarantee of warmth.

Here is a brief description of the temperature ratings:

Comfort: the temperature at which a standard woman wearing the Selk'bag can expect to sleep comfortably in a relaxed position.

Limit: the temperature at which a standard man wearing the Selk'bag can expect to sleep comfortably in a relaxed position. 

Extreme: the temperature at which a standard woman wearing the Selk'bag can remain for six hours without risk of hypothermia or death. 

If you would like to understand it better, our partner REI has made a great video explaining it really simple and very straight forward. Check it out here

Q: How can I improve the temperature performance of my Selk'bag?

A: Improving the temperature performance of the Selk'bag Sleepwear System is similar to improving the temperature performance of any technical sleeping bag product.  Try these methods to improve your Selk'bag performance:

  • Wear a Base Layer: wearing a quality base layer with your Selk'bag can improve temperature performance by 10 to 15 degrees Fahrenheit.  We recommend technical base layers that can both wick moisture and keep your warm.
  • Use a Sleeping Pad: sleeping on a quality sleeping pad can have a nice warming effect while you sleep.  We recommend technical pads, like Thermarest for example.
  • Pull Your Arms into the Chest Cavity: the Selk'bag is designed to allow the wearer to pull their arms into the chest cavity of the Selk'bag, thus acting more like a traditional mummy bag when temperatures are very low.
  • Cuddle: something you can't do in a mummy bag, and that's cuddle with someone else!
Selk'bag Temperature Performance Fact: many people think the Selk'bag is dramatically colder than similarly constructed mummy bags (insulation, shell, baffled construction) due to arm and leg separation.  However, by having arms and legs separated, the Selk'bag only loses 2 to 3 degrees of temperature performance.

Warranty

Q: What is the manufacturer's warranty on the Selk'bag?

* Please keep in mind that our Original 6G model, due to a higher insulation loft (contains more padding insulation than the Lite 6G) makes it more snug, so we recommend to size up if you are 1'' to 3'' below the in between size range (i.e if you are getting the Original 6G and you are 5'9'' we recommend getting an XL)

 

In-between sizes? 
A looser fit is better for more comfortable sleeping, while a tighter fit is better for mobility - but may restrict sleeping comfort if booties are left on.

We always recommend to size up if you are in between sizes or not completely sure. It's better to have a little bit more room while using your Selk'bag!
