Kelty Cosmic DriDown Sleeping Bag

Warmer than the inside of a TaunTaun and crucially less sticky, this fluffy cocoon of luxury will keep your buds cozy down to 20° Fahrenheit (-6°C for those across the pond). The Kelty Cosmic is stuffed with 600-fill, hydrophobic down, compactable to the size of a water bottle, and is the gold standard of comfort for resting on uncomfortable ground. ❄️

No one's saying we're afraid of the dark. Definitely not. But say, theoretically, we were to get "sensibly anxious" at night while camping. Lucky for us, this crushable solar lantern would be easy to pack in our bag next to the stuffed bear and copy of Goodnight Moon. Did you hear that? 👻
