Two Decades of Sleeping Bag Evolution: From Peter Max to Skeletor

quote [ It wasn’t until the 1980s that sleeping bags became billboards for kids’ favorite pop culture icons. Throughout the 70s, they were mostly just fun designs with a favorite character like Snoopy here and there. ]

So grab yourself a spot and settle down awhile

Say what you will about Paul Reubens, but I would have killed for that Pee-wee's Playhouse sleeping bag back in 1988.

I spent money on a decent sleeping bag when I was sleeping in my car. In winter I used to hang up my coat, zipped up,, to make a pocket of less-cold air for my face. In retrospect I was probably as much at risk of asphyxiating myself as I was from the kind of weirdo who hangs around car parks in the middle of the night.

I concluded that anything below ten degrees is cold. Anything below six degrees is uncomfortably cold.

My brother and I had the Smurfs one.

I'm wondering when the mummy style ones appeared or respectively became popular. They can't be printed on as nicely, though..

I still have my blue one from when I was a kid, but it has been replaced by a warmer, lighter, smaller one. I don't think it ever got washed and the flannel interior had a tough slickness to it, like a well-seasoned cast iron skillet.
