F*ckin EPIC!! Seriously the best purchase I made in a long time

I LOVE my Selkbag, only been wearing it at home and around the house For now but can’t wait to take it out into the Wild... and definitely already the envy of my friends. Quality is much better than expected for that kind of money (I never actually saw a real one before ordering online) and I am likely to buy a couple more for the family. Highly recommended


Glad you are digging the Selk, Nils! Thank you so much for the support and the love!

Backcountry Puffy Suit Fashionistas

The selk bags are super fun. We got them for car camping, but recently took them on a three day traverse through the mountains on the Prince William Sound, Alaska. They kept us warm enough in 50 degree weather and were mostly hilarious to wear around camp in the backcountry. They are a bit heavy, but most buyers are not carrying them up mountains, over glaciers, and through rivers. The zippers feel like they may be a bit flimsy and the hood tends to slip off while sleeping (not a very deep hood). Going to the bathroom while in the bag (men and women), is not an easy task as the bag must be fully taken off. We would love a puffy suit for our husky, as he feels left out! Also if you need gear testers in Alaska, let us know. We can put them through packrafting, mountaineering, and glamping adventures of all sorts. Thanks!


Wow, thank you so much for all the support and for sharing this awesome story! Hope you all are staying warm out there!

My favourite thing in the world, not including my dogs ...

This is my second selk bag. I wear it everyday. Seriously. My office is in the basement of my house and the heating is not great there. So I wear it everyday. Now I can switch up between my red and purple selk, depending on my mood. Love the back pocket in the Chili River. They are indestructible, wash easily. The zippers are sturdy and the little feet are so much fun!!!


Thank you for helping spread the Selk love, Jan! Stay warm out there!

Size Chart

A proper fit is essential to fully enjoying all the Selk'bag has to offer.  Please note, that the sizing recommendations are meant for people of average weight and sizing is impacted by user weight.  For example, a Selk'bag will fit a person of below average weight with a taller frame that exceeds the guidelines.  Likewise, a person of above average weight will require a bag meant for someone taller.

In-between sizes?  Please first consider the weight recommendations in the previous paragraph.  Second, please understand that 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 not completely sure. It's better to have a little bit more room while using your Selk'bag!

Please mind that our Original 6G model due to highest loft of insulation (contains more padding insulation that Lite 6G) 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)


Size Small
Fits up to 4’11’’ / 150 cm Tall
It can fit up to 5'4'' if you intend to use it without booties


Size Medium
Fits up to 5’5’’ / 165 cm Tall
If you are between 4'11'' and 5'5'' this is your size. It can fit up to 5'9'' if you intend to use it without booties


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

If you are between 5'5'' and 5'11'' this is your size. It can fit up to 6'1'' if you intend to use it without booties
