It's probably less comfortable during bear rut and hunting season.

That is scary cute, and would be great for a sleep over for my daughter and her friends.

I had similar thoughts when I first looked at those photo's, too ~ that that bag was designed for school age "sleep overs"..

That could be great fun for just sleeping under the stars on a dry spring/summer evening in one of those drive-up type camping areas. Imagine the split second amusement/surprise of some passers-by when they walk past your site and see a bear laying there.

I can see it now, The game warden gets a call from a frantic camper claiming to have seen a bear in the campground. The warden arrives and in the commotion the zipper on your bear bag sticks trapping you inside. As you flail to extract yourself, your limbs protruding from the sleeping bag are assumed to be the last portions of the bears most recent meal. You are shot with a tranquilizer and hauled off to a sanctuary before you finally come to.

Sounds like an awesome time to me!
