Best Of The Best… ‘Top Gear’ Of The Year

Zipper-less Sleeping Bag — We love this design! The Backcountry Bed from Sierra Designs is basically a sleeping bag with an opening in the middle. An attached blanket closes the opening instead of a zipper, and the result is a comfortable and versatile alternative to a constricting sleeping bag.

The company uses an airy 800-fill goose down for premium backcountry sleep. $349. Go here for the full review of this product on GearJunkie.
