Flying Squirrel 40° Sleeping Bag

The Original Outdoor Outfitter®

Crawl in, wrap up, stay warm. Originally designed as packable emergency warmth for our guides, this innovative design proved to be a favorite for cool summer nights in camp as well, replacing a restrictive mummy-style bag. The absence of zippers and the self-packing design makes it a lightweight alternative to a traditional summerweight bag. Rated to 40°F.

Outside Magazine Summer 2016 Buyer's Guide
"The coolest sleep solution we've seen in years."

Active Junky 2016 Badass Gear Award
"More a premium down burrito than a foot-binding bag, Flying Squirrel turns 20D Pertex ripstop nylon and premium 850 fill StormDown insulation into a sublime temperature-management system. Even beyond cooler evenings, this one's joining the kit for winter camping as an inner bag to extend the range of my existing bag."

Men's Health 2017 Tech Guide
"We love the zipperless design on this sleeping bag, which Eddie Bauer designed as a lightweight, compact option for its guides. Ideal for nights when the mercury won't fall below 40°F."

Love this bag


I love this sleeping bag for summer use. I paid a seamstress to did add wide red velcro in strategic places so that I could keep the bag closed when I toss and turn. I have added the velcro in two places in paralell for a loose fit and a tighter fit. I don't understand why no attaching devices were added to this wonderful bag. Velcro must be added in two different parallel places to keep the bag closed. Velcro at one spot will not work. The bag will gap if only one velcro attachment point is added.




Best 3 season sleeping bag ever!


This bag is light, warm and very convenient. The design is novel slick, cool looking and




Keep yer' nuts warm in the Flying Squirrel


Overall I like this bag. I do wish the footbox was wider or had the ability to open or unfold. I may try some adhesive Velcro strips to help keep the top part of the bag closed when I toss & turn. The hood folds out of the way nicely when not needed,and holds a pillow in place either way.




unique design


have only taken naps in this in a cold house, but will be light weight, small and good for warm weather hiking
