Bring out your inner nomad with our warmest Selk’bag. Whether you’re heading out ice climbing, living in a van, or car camping over a snowy weekend, the Nomad will keep you cozy with water-resistant synthetic insulation. 

Have you ever laid in bed, wishing you never had to get out of your sleeping bag or blankets? I know the feeling. Slip on the Nomad, zip it up, and go about your life in comfort, without the constraints of a standard sleeping bag or blanket!

It's the ultimate cozy-chic look. Sure, it might not win fashion awards, but there’s nothing like the style of pure comfort when it's cold and snowy outside. If your life is geared towards outdoor pursuits, you already know that nothing beats functional fashion.

The Nomad is just that — try it on; it'll soon be your new favorite layer. 

“I wear it every single day to warm up after my open water swims in the Salish Sea. This Nomad bag and a mug of hot is good in the Pacific Northwest,” says Sandra, a Nomad lover.

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
Maximum Height: 4'11" / 150 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.


Size Large
Fits up to 5’11’’ / 180 cm Tall

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!
