Spending time in the great outdoors often means compromising style for practicality. George Mallory may have looked dashing when he set out to conquer Everest in his Harris Tweed suit, but he also died in it.
Well the good folks at Scout Seattle still think traditional fabrics deserve a shot in the wild with their Field Bed, a 100% cotton selvedge denim sleeping bag. With neppy 13oz. green-line selvedge denim from Italy’s Candiani Mills, a Japanese chambray lining, and an M8 RiRi zipper, the Field Bed spares no expense for dream fades.
Though the bag would hardly be the first choice for a technical ascent–just the denim in it weighs four pounds–it looks hard to beat for an early autumn car camp.
