This Bear Sleeping Bag Is As Comfy As It Is Expensive

When we go camping, bears are usually the last thing we want to meet. Even if we can stay at a safe distance, there's still a good chance that they'll raid our campsites and eat all our food.

However, when that bear takes the form of a cuddly sleeping bag, we're suddenly a far cry from the intense scenes in The Revenant.

But as its creator, artist Eiko Ishizawa, would tell us, it's not just a sleeping bag.

Ishizawa designed this sleeping bag with a real bear in mind.

Specifically, she was inspired by Bruno, the so-called "problem bear" that was killed after it crossed Austria's alpine border into Germany.

On her website, Ishizawa said she was not only interested in Bruno's sad story, but in the fact that, "This bear was generating many different ideas and emotions in people as illusions in reality by just crossing the borderline between countries."

So what led her to express all of that by making a sleeping bag, specifically?

She said that since it actually works as outdoor gear, it better expresses the human contradiction of admiring nature, while also drawing and enforcing unnatural boundaries.

But whether people appreciate the meaning behind it or not, it's hard not to see this as an enticing sleeping bag.

I wouldn't count on it making real bears any more likely to leave you alone, but it looks irresistibly warm and comfortable.

And the good news is that you can buy one just like it for yourself.

However, the bad news is that it'll run you about $2,350.

Yeah, according to OddityMall, Ishizawa is selling them on a one-to-one basis and you would need to directly contact her if you're still interested in getting one.
