I can't help thinking that this looks rather like a body bag for some reason, so I think I'll pass!

So, it's fine for the girl in the clip, but who do you ask to straighten it out and cover you up properly when you're on your own?!

I thought the same joaquinfan.  lol I think the skill of a contortionist will come in handy as well.  not very comfy.  what a malarky to go through. Whats wrong with a bivvy bag???

I really can not see any use for it other than a short winter walk. No not even that.
just imagine swinging your rucksack and roll onto your back with that on
I think I would rather stick with a good bivvy bag or Tarp.In the warm six months.

He's obviously not camped in the UK before has he?

Like you'd get any sleep without padding of some sort under your back.!!! He's really not tought that through has he? Why would you want to stand up in water with it on?

I bet they cost a fortune too!!

Not warm enough in cold weather, and drowning in your own sweat in hot weather...
