The Sleeping Bag Hammock

We're pretty excited about this resurgence of hammocks. From the incredibly comfortable and easy-to-set-up Kammock and ENO models, to the invention hidden in a backpack, the classic outdoor (and indoor, occasionally) lounging method has lately gained some ground as a viable camping alternative to the tent. So let's go ahead and add another player on the field that is hovering sleeping beds in the Bison Bag, which takes outdoor minimalism a step further.

Created by soon-to-be-newlyweds, nearly all of your camping supplies fit inside the sleeping bag sack, making the Bison Bag convenient to carry. For now, the synthetic bag comes in a simple forest green (what else?) and is rectangular, giving you a little more room to move than the constricting mummy. If we have any say regarding future color options, we suggest disco.

And if you're wondering if you can squeeze two into a Bison Bag, the couple told us it's too small. They tried.
