Crafted with 100% post-consumer recycled fabrics, insulation, and zippers. This limited edition Selk' is inspired by the Patagonian jungle, an homage to the flora and fauna of the southern end of the world.
100% Recycled Materials
The Selk’bag Rainforest outer shell, linings, zippers and insulation are made with 100% post-consumer recycled material fibers.
Fifty-four (54) discarded plastic bottles are recycled into polyester fibers to produce each bag, taking a meaningful step towards more sustainable production. Requiring fewer resources, generating less waste, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, helps us better protect people’s health and push for a more sustainable planet.
This new model, came to life trough our alliance with Parque Oncol, one of the largest reserves of biodiversity on the face of the planet. A one-of-a-kind marvel that inspired us in the creation of this design, which sports the species most symbolic of this incredible place, like the Monito del Monte (a small marsupial opossum) and the Chucao bird.
Parque Oncol, nestled on the coast of Valdivia, in northern Chilean Patagonia, is home to an inmense diversity of endemic flora and fauna as a result of glacial movements 18,000 years ago. The park's mountain Oncol, Mirador and Nahuelbuta remained iced-free in this period of time, thus creating an environment that supports this park, as the largest reserve of biodiversity in South America, and one of the largest on the planet.

I purchased the Rainforest Selk'bag for my wife's birthday because she always seems to be cold (even in CA). I had it mailed to my son's house in Austin,TX as we were traveling out there during her birthday. Went through AZ during a snowstorm and got stuck in traffic in the middle of NM for 7 1/2-hours in 23° weather. Could have used the bag multiple times. Got to TX and she opened her present but by that time it was warmer. Came back home and up to a family mountain house. She finally tried it on and fell in love. She wears it in front of the fire at night, to sleep in, and during morning coffee. Thank you so much. She's in love...again.
I absolutely love my Rainforest Selk'bag. It is warm and super comfortable. My only request would be for there to be a safe guard to ensure that the fabric doesn't get caught in the zipper. It gets caught very easily. My husband, loves his as well but would love it even more with a zipper added to the front, under the front pouch to allow men wearing the suit to use the bathroom without pulling the whole torso part off. Other than these minor suggestions, excellent purchase!
I already had the heavier weight Selk'bag but decided to add the lighter weight one to my arsenal of outdoor wear. I also love the Rainforest print so that factored in. I really like the lighter weight of this one and have used it now more that the weather is changing to spring/higher temps. After ordering my first Selk'bag in size small (I am 4'11"), I opted for size M this time and am happy I did. While the arms are a little long for me I can move around in it more comfortably overall. Perfect for me for nights around the firepit where temps are 35+ degrees. I anticipate using this for van camping/sleeping as I can stretch out/move very comfortably in it. I still don't know that I would use the booties even to sleep as I find I just don't use them on either suit. They are easy enough to zip on/off (easier if I don't have the suit on) but if I am home leave them off and either wear boots or slippers. I really like the choice of pattern on the Rainforest. With a darker color and the pattern it makes it easier to hide small spills. I have not had to wash this one yet but have washed my other one a few times and it washes well. I hang to dry and looks new again. It may seem excessive to have one on each weight but I live in the mountains/higher elevation and find having a lighter weight option for 3 out of 4 seasons is worth it. Love Selk'bag!!
The print on this Selk'bag is absolutely beautiful! And I LOVE that it is eco-friendly. The bag itself is super cozy and comfortable.. It's lightweight but nice and warm- perfect for Spring and Summer camping. I am also loving it for hanging around the house and cuddling with my pup! It's a must-have!!
The selk'bag is very nice looking. The fit was a little on the small side (length) and there were some issues with the stitching. The bag is otherwise warm and comfortable. Time will tell about durability.
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!
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.
Realtree models only
* Please keep in mind that our Original 6G model, due to a higher insulation loft (contains more padding insulation than the 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)
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!
