A cross between a snuggly sleeping bag and rugged cowboy sleeping rolls—where two wool blankets were folded around each other for a night’s rest, then rolled up and attached to the saddle through a leather harness. This field bed combines vintage aesthetics with some of the latest materials in camping technology. The “slub selvage” denim exterior of the sleeping bag is sourced from a 4th generation premium denim dealer in Italy. Slub refers to its textured, irregular surface, created through knotting or twisting the yarns, as well as through “loom chatter.” When the looms shake and rattle, it renders further irregularity and interest to the fabric consistency. Selvage (a.k.a. Selvedge, meaning “Self-Edge”) denim has a neat and clean look due to the tightly woven bands on the edges of the fabric that prevent unraveling and fraying. Because this heavy-duty denim weighs about 4 pounds, this sleeping bag is best suited for car camping, and not for minimal backpacking or backcountry camping trips. To keep the blanket roll cozy through the night, its red, 100% cotton, Japanese chambray interior is filled with a high-tech, military-grade insulation that is rated to keep you warm in temperatures down to 20ºF/-6ºC. As you wake with the morning light, roll up your sleeping bag with its included Horween leather strap, and cinch it tightly with the adjustable roller buckles. Chicago’s Horween Leather Company was founded in 1905 and remains one of the oldest continuously running tanneries in the US. The leather is selected by the tannery's head grader, a man with 40 years of experience.
Dry cleaning solvents are difficult to remove from the sleeping bag insulation, therefore, do not dry clean. Professional sleeping bag laundering is suitable. If you wish to wash the sleeping bag yourself, hand-washing in a bathtub works best. Fill the tub with cool water and add a mild soap. Put the bag in the water and gently work in the soap, then allow it to soak for 15 minutes. Drain the tub and press out any remaining water. In a cold-water rinse, continue to gently press out the soap. Let the bag sit for 15 minutes to drain. Press out any remaining water. Repeat the rinse until all the soap is out. You may also machine wash as long as a front-loading washer without an agitator is used. The agitator will damage the stitching and insulation. Wash with cool water and a mild soap.
