I have slept in and on pretty much everything. The back of a car, an inflatable mattress under the stars, with and without blankets, in a variety of sleeping bags, on the ground, on metal benches, and everything in between. That's all changed now. I will no longer settle for sub-par sleeping arrangements outside of my home; not since I got a Crash Sack.
What makes a Crash Sack so exciting?
1. This is like a sleeping bag that you can wear, which makes many things easier. It comes fully equipped with arm holes and you can zip the bottom open and secure it around the waist area so that you can walk around in it.
2. You can be in it no matter what. You can sit around the campfire in it, (not too close though, brainiac). If you pee four times a night like I do, (I know, I should see a doctor), then it is really helpful for that too. You can have your hands out and free without being freezing or having to re-situate yourself. It is very helpful.
3. IT HAS A HOOD.
4. IT HAS POCKETS.
What are some things you should know about it?
1. I feel as though this may be slightly tighter in the lower half than traditional sleeping bags. Where other sleeping bags seem to be pretty much rectangular, I get the feeling that the Crash Sack is tapered in the lower section to make it better when it comes to zipping/unzipping/securing/and fitting more closely to the body. This is not a bad thing by any means, but when I sleep, I look like this:
So there isn't a lot of room for me to do that, but it's all good. I still slept well.
2. As with any product you purchase, it's important to know the rules. Pay attention to the temperature guidelines. If it tells you 45 degrees, it MEANS 45 DEGREES. We took a trip into the desert recently where temperatures dropped to the mid-20s and I was freezing, particularly my feet and buttocks.
This bag is reasonably priced and durable, currently selling on the following site for $119.00. Dpesn't appear to be in stock in some other places. Other people must like it as much as I do. Check it out. www.blessthisstuff.com/stuff/living/misc-living/evrgrn-crash-sack/
No one paid me to say this. No one pays me anything ever. Even my boss doesn't like to pay me. I just wanted to tell you about this awesome sleeping bag. There really is no downside to this bag. I'm not saying I'm replacing my clothes with it, but don't be surprised to find me wearing it on the couch while I'm watching Bates Motel.
