Do Your Roommates Snore? How to Fall Asleep Faster Than Them!

Do Your Roommates Snore? How to Fall Asleep Faster Than Them!

August 26, 2020

Going off to college is your first taste of freedom. You unpack your belongings, maybe decorate your dorm with all of your favorite memorabilia, meet your new roommate, and hit off.

During the first day, you forget to ask one of the most important questions of your life “Do you snore?” As far as weird questions go, this one is on the not weird at all side of the scale.

Who wants to get 2 hours of sleep because their roomie snores like he works 2 12 hour shifts? Not me, and you shouldn’t either.  So the first night you tuck yourself into your bed, snuggle your head against your favorite pillow, and close your eyes. Except roomie has already made it to bed before you and his snores aren’t the cute “Oh I’m kind of Tired” ones; instead, you drew the short end of the stick and have to listen to your entire dorm room vibrate for the next few hours.

Moral of the story? Sleep is precious and we are telling you exactly how to beat your roommate to the snooze button.

Avoid Night Classes

Signed up for the last orientation day and got stuck with the classes no one wants? Well, now is the time to practice your persuasion skills and rearrange your skills. Leave the night classes to the working professionals and night owls.

There is nothing worse than walking back from a 10 o’clock class and hearing the snores before you even enter the building. You won’t win this game that way. Time to play smarter and not harder.

Sign up for the dreaded 8 o’clock class, you’ll thank us later! Give yourself a few breaks in between classes, but make sure you are exiting your last class by 6. Any later and you’ll end up regretting it at 2 o’clock in the morning. 

Stay Comfortable 

Have you ever tried to fall asleep when it’s really cold outside? No, right? That’s because it's biologically impossible! Not really, but it is much easier to fall asleep when you are as comfortable as possible. If you’ve had a long day, put the AC on in your car instead of the heater.

The way that works for us is called the Selk’bag triple layer. You are going to make a Selk’bag sandwich. Bottom layers are your sheets, the middle layer is the Selk’bag and the top layer is a blanket. The blanket is really just for extra comfort.


Coming back from a full schedule of classes is often mentally exhausting and not really physically. Do you remember that time that you ran a marathon? No, that’s because you didn’t since it sounded too tiring.


That’s exactly the point, any amount of physical activity is a good way to tire out your body. After showering, you’ll practically melt onto your bed. No amount of snoring will be able to rouse you until the next morning.

Don’t fall victim to the loud, chilly snores of roommates. It’s time to out sleep them. Grab your Selk’bag and rest peacefully this semester.

Size Chart

A proper fit is essential to fully enjoying all the Selk'bag has to offer. All Selk'bag models are unisex, meaning that is suitable for men and women.

The size you need will depend on the activity you'll use it for the most : to sleep, be active, both, or any other thing you may think of. To help you choose we’ve put together a Fitting Guide with comprehensive information.

In case you still unsure which size to choose, please contact us anytime and we'll be glad to help!


Size Medium
Minimum Height: 4'0" / 122 cm
Maximum Height: 4'6" / 137 cm
Size Large*
Minimum Height: 4'6" / 137 cm

 * Please note, Kids size Large is significantly less wide than the Adult size Small.  An adult that measures between 4'6" / 137 cm and 4'11" / 150 cm should use the Adult Small over Kids Large.


Size Small
Fits up to 4’11’’ / 150 cm Tall
if you are between 4’5” and 4’9” this is your size.
It can fit up to 4'11'' if you intend to use it while active, without booties.


Size Medium
Fits up to 5’5’’ / 165 cm Tall
If you are between 4'9'' and 5'3'' this is your size. It can fit up to 5'5'' if you intend to use it while active, without booties.

If you are between 5'3'' and 5'9'' this is your size. It can fit up to 5'11'' if you intend to use it while active, without booties.


Size X-Large
Fits up to 6’4’’ / 193 cm Tall
If you are between 5'9'' and 6'2'' this is your size. It can fit up to 6'4'' if you intend to use it while active, without booties.


Size X-Large Wide
Same as X-Large, but for heavier body types (approx. +2'' in girth throughout the torso vs X-Large)

Realtree models only


* Please keep in mind that our Original model, due to a higher insulation loft (contains more padding insulation than the Lite) makes it more snug, so we recommend to size up if you are 1'' to 3'' below the in between size range (i.e if you are getting the Original 6G and you are 5'9'' we recommend getting an XL)


In-between sizes? 
A looser fit is better for more comfortable sleeping, while a tighter fit is better for mobility - but may restrict sleeping comfort if booties are left on.

We always recommend to size up if you are in between sizes or not completely sure. It's better to have a little bit more room while using your Selk'bag!
