    SLEEPING BAG

    I like sleeping bags, they are wide and flexible enough to fit me comfortably but at the same time it holds my body in place as I sleep. I tend to sleep like Dracula so the fact that I’m not able to make large/wide movements doesn’t bother me. I do not like my face to be covered though.




    KEPENEK, FELT MANTLE

    Used by herdsmen in Anatolia, Turkey as a one-person tent/sleeping bag while in the wilderness. The Kepenek is felted in one piece and the material is sheep wool. Felted wool fabric adapts to the body of the wearer and could even be felted directly onto the body of the person using the clothing for the ultimate fit.




    DRE WAPENAAR TREETENT

    I like the fact that the pod is hanging form a tree. I would like my personal pod to be hanging as well, but it would be more like a sleeping bag in terms of size. I really like the drop shape of the tent.

    THE HAMMOCK

    I like the idea of wrapping myself in a hammock to take a nap. They are airy so I can breathe and they are quite comfrotable as well. I like anything that will allow me to sleep comfortably outside.
