I really do feel the cold, our sofa has 4 separate blankets on or next to it as I type this so I was very happy to be sent a Summit Motion Sac Sleep Suit from Planet Camping to test out.
It’s basically a sleeping bag with arms and legs built in. There are zips at the end of the arms so you can free your fingers and the feet are detachable so if you’re camping you can slip your wellies on.
The Motion Sac is really lightweight but suitable for 3 seasons, so is suitable from 5 to -5 degrees celsius and it packs down really small thanks to it’s stuff sack, so it’s no hassle to carry around.
They come in two sizes, I went for the medium one and it’s the perfect size, there’s loads of room inside.
This sleep suit would be perfect for festival goers, as well as run of the mill camping. Night time trips to the toilet block would be a cozy doddle wearing one of these!
Now, as a family, we aren’t big campers so I wanted to see how useful a Motion Sac would be at home, so this weekend I spent some time coming up with alternate uses.
It turns out there are loads of things you can do with a Summit Motion Sac that don’t involve camping or even sleeping…
1) It helps you save money, instead of sticking the heating on you can crawl into the motion suit and still do all the housework!
2) You can totally put the recycling bins out in the morning and not feel the cold.
3) Fed up getting cold when you’re scraping ice off the car? A Motion Sac can help with that!
4) I imagine if we had a dog, it’d probably be the perfect dog walking coat and trousers combo.
5) I no longer work from home in my PJs, I can now feel like I’m still in bed by working in my Sleep Suit!
6) Next summer I’ll be able to stay out in the garden longer into the evening after dinner. As the temperature drops I can just zip myself up into my Motion Sac and watch the sun go down.
The Sleep Suit is genius, the kids love it and have asked for one each for Christmas, can you picture us all sat on the couch wearing them in a row?!
A warning though, the Sleep Suit does lead to you, or me at least, pulling a lot of daft faces. I think the shock of feeling so comfy whilst not being in bed sent me slightly doolally!
What would you get up to wearing a Sleep Suit?
