‘Best In Show’ At OR Show – Top Gear For 2016 (part II)

Ultimate Outdoor Sleep – Sea to Summit Basecamp

Plush sleeping bags were a minor trend at the OR Show this summer. A top contender for “best night’s sleep outdoors” comes from Sea To Summit and its Basecamp line.


There is nothing revolutionary, but in full this sleeping bag, which comes in a few configurations, starting at $269, has all the needed bells and whistles smartly built-in. (See details in the 2016 Sea To Summit catalog.)


There’s a slot for an inflatable pillow; a removable top quilt; pad straps on the bottom; internal drawcords to cinch the insulation close; a big footbox; and a contoured rectangle shape that gives ample room to sleep on your side, back, or stomach — just like at home.
