Camping Gadgets – The Great Sleeping Bear

by Mike on February 19, 2009

Geek out on your next outdoor camping adventure with The Great Sleeping Bear sleeping bag.

Outdoor gadgets - the sleeping bear

Designed by Eiko Ishizawa, this synthetic sleeping bag is meant to resemble the wandering great brown bear of the Alps.

According to the designer, this cool design plays on several basic human emotions including the fear of getting eaten by a bear, being a bear as well as wearing a bear skin.

Regardless of which emotion this design will illicit in you, one thing is for sure and that is you’ll have lots of fun and laughs on your next camping trip. In fact, as everyone huddles around the campfire telling ghost stories or other scary stories of the madman of the woods, slip into your sleeping bag and just wander out of your tent to give your friends a good scare.

If you like this camping gadget, it looks like you will be able to buy it in the Spring of 09, so stay tuned.

    What if a bear mounts you, thinking that you are a real hot bear?

  • Jim

    I want this sleeping bag.
    It probably isn’t much use and it probably won’t fool anyone (so pranks out) but boy does it look cool.
