Thank goodness for all those action shots! I would never know the full potential of the sleeping bag suit otherwise.

I like the way you think.. There might be a few technical difficulties even if you managed to get two in there.

There should be ports. Strategically placed. So you could combine two or more suits.

That has to be the single stupidest thing I have seen thus far this week. That amounts to fragile coveralls.

I suppose that thing would be serviceable if you cut the legs open, sewed them together, chopped off the sleeves, and sewed the holes. That's what I would do anyway.

And if you did take it on a trip, it would certainly keep all the freaks* away.

*Apart from the one wearing the suit.

Perfect for when you need to get up and run from the bear that snuck into your tent at night.

Too bad it also prevents that pretty person of the enticing persuasion from sneaking into your tent for some "snuggle time" too.

Um. Wearin' that at a "summer festival" here would be suicide. Jes' sayin'.... Did anyone else notice the "straight-jacket" look in that second "action" photo?

As far a peein' goes, there exists a female urinal with a tube that any long-distance female hiker knows about. This would work for me while wearin' that. I guess, x, you could wear a condom catheter with a long tube. <shrug> Heh, I dare someone here to write to the company with a question about how to pee, risk- and fool-proof, after drinkin' too many Bass beers at a "summer festival"!

But, seriously, this is not a sleepin' bag for even the area where I live....
