The Great Sleeping Bear Is The Most Awesome Sleeping Bag Ever

The best sleeping bags don’t keep you safe from bears so might as well be one. You will finally have the opportunity to sleep inside a bear with more than one person. Really, we don’t want to explain that statement any further, but we suppose it does merit a little clarification.

Bearly Tolerable

Essentially, the Great Sleeping Bear is a multiperson sleeping bag from Cargo Collective. If the name sounds familiar, that’s because it’s sort of a network of websites for artists and designers; they have their own subsites and other items that let you poke around, buy stuff, and otherwise support the arts. And, occasionally, they feature wacky stuff like this amid the more serious attempts to create art.

Thus, this sleeping bag. It’s actually not a mass-manufactured product, but rather made by hand, right down to the nose and teeth. Apparently the project got started as a separate piece of sculpture and the artist discovered that, oh yeah, people really like bears and the concept of sleeping with (or apparently inside) one.

As a result, it’s a bit artier in the pitch than the usual adorable product. The artist is asking that you send along photos and locations of where you’re using the bear so they can be used in collages, maps, and other collaborative artworks.

The other quirk is, well, you’re going to have to pay a fairly high price to get your very own handmade bear sleeping bag for two. After all, it’s not just a goofy stuffed bear you sleep in, it’s an actual work of art, and artists tend to want to be paid for their work. Still, it might be worth it just for unfurling this at the campsite and seeing the dismayed looks on people’s faces. Especially if you insist to them that “If you can’t beat them, join them” is a perfectly reasonable philosophy.
