“I bought the Rewilder sleeping bag at about 1am while at anchor in the San Juan Islands on a lovely Summer night. I awoke in the night perspiring and agitated by the synthetic down sleeping bag I was in. At home I live in a 19ft traditional Mongolian Yurt that is insulated with wool felt, the comforter on our bed is wool, all my outdoor layers from undergarments to sweaters are merino wool.
Since incorporating wool products into my professional guiding and daily life at home I’ve always been a strong advocate and proponent to clients and friends of the many merits the material offers.
So here I was a lover of wool and I was stuck in this slimy synthetic bag in the middle of the night. I research online in just a few minutes that Lucky Sheep is one of the only producers of a wool sleeping bag worthy of outdoor professionals and is as well run by Patrick whom lives, shares and educates about his outdoor life and pursuits.
I went ahead and ordered the Rewilder “Jumbo”. Most of my work these days is captaining sailboats in the San Juan islands, guiding river rafts . It brings me so much joy crawling into it each night.
The soft merino liner feels great on the skin and face and the breathability and comfort of the wool batting is second to no other material. I bring this bag with me everywhere. I will even sleep in it while staying at friends, families, and hotels preferring to sleep in it rather then the sheets and covers provided.
This bag is my most important and favorite piece of gear in my outdoor kit and provides exceptional snuggle-ability on a cold winter day in the cockpit.”
