Spend A Cozy Night In This Bear Sleeping Bag

A sleeping bag is a protective “bag” for a person to sleep in essentially a sleeping bag is a blanket with a zipper, and functions as a bed in situations where a bed is unavailable. The primary purpose of a sleeping bag is to provide warmth and thermal insulation.

It also protects, to some extent, against wind chill, precipitation, and exposure to view, but a tent performs those functions better. The bottom surface also provides some cushioning, but a sleeping pad is usually used in addition for that purpose. Abivouac sack is a waterproof cover for a sleeping bag that may be used in place of a tent for lightweight travelers or as a backup if inclement weather occurs.

The “Euklisia Rug”, patented by mail-order pioneer Pryce Pryce-Jones in 1876, is considered by many to have been the first forerunner of the modern sleeping bag. Pryce-Jones, a Newtown, Montgomeryshire England entrepreneur developed the bag and exported around the world in the late 19th century.

Documents show that he sold 60,000 of these rugs to the Russian army – and the British army also bought them. There are records of civilian uses too – among missionaries in Africa and pioneers in the Australian outback.
