Sleeping Bags Are Sleepwear

Is it possible for Sleeping Bags to be considered Sleepwear?  I am not sure if the customs office agrees, but wearable sleeping bags sure appear to have similarities to sleepwear.

Inspired by the lost Selk'nam natives of Tierra del Fuego, Chile, the Selk'bag has a rich history of innovation, technical proficiency, and worldwide recognition from its creation in 2006 through today.

Originally developed in 2006, the Selk'bag Sleepwear System was created by Rodrigo Alonso of Musuchouse in Santiago, Chile.  Winning regional praise and recognition, Rodrigo Alonso commercialized the Selk'bag working with Lippi Outdoor, a 30-year-old technical mountain gear company also of Santiago, Chile later that year.  

In February 2007, the Selk'bag made its debut in Europe at the ISPO sporting goods show in Munich, Germany, becoming a Brand New Award Finalist, a prestigious honor for new outdoor products in the European market.  


The Selk'bag made its debut in the U.S. market in August 2008 and immediately became a sensation in the outdoor world.

In 2009, Selk'bag 3G made its debut with new models for Kids (Selk'bag 3G Kids) and adults (Selk'bag 3G Down), as Rodrigo and company launched Musuc Outdoors with a renewed focus on innovation and fun for all outdoor enthusiasts. 

Selk'bag USA, Inc. is the exclusive distributor of Selk'bag Sleepwear Systems in the U.S. and Canada.  A subsidiary of parent company Musuchouse Ltda. of Santiago, Chile, Selk'bag USA, Inc. is committed to your satisfaction and enjoyment of our sleepwear system products.

The wearable sleeping bag comes in a variety of models.

Let's start with the Original.  Now in its 4th Generation, the Selk'bag Original has evolved into the best fitting, more technically advanced Selk’bag made to date.
