In 2006 a great tragedy struck. A bear had crossed over into Bavaria from Italy and the public was in an uproar at the danger. The Bavarian authorities decided the best course of action was to kill the bear, despite strong opposition from animal rights advocates. Eiko Ishizawa was appalled by this horror and started thinking of a way to show her disgust, but to do it in an artistic and fun way. Her answer was to create sleeping bear bag, which allowed her to pose like a dead bear on the ground, showcasing the tragic event. The bag has a realistic look, but is also a very capable sleeping bag due to Eiko’s consultations with outdoor gear makers.
We have to question the wisdom of sleeping or crawling around in this bag, though. You might end up as the next bear shot out of fear in the mountains of Bavaria.
