WOW! :shock:

The regular Snowy Owl bag is rated to -50F (-45C) and this has three times as much down :shock: . When would you ever use a bag like that? I think it would be too warm to use in almost any conditions you would encounter.

I think this quote from the ad says it all...

"This (bag) was basically made for comfort and has little practical application."

winter ascent of denali, if you're a super cold sleeper. Winter ascent of vinson in antarctica. Deep space maybe?

For a minute I thought it was stuffed with the down of snowy owls,
I didn't know they made owl down sleeping bags.
I'll go back to being quiet again now.

So I guess this guy wanted to ensure himself and possibly a partner against the next ice age. What is his next auction going to be? A thousand pounds of canned goods, or possibly a ten thousand gallon underground storage tank which comes full of propane complete with attached fire log...

My guess is, judging by your screen name, it's gonna be a little snug for you! :lol:

I think the winning bidder has more dollars than sense...and they're probably going to use it for some kinky activity we aren't even considering. Eeeeww... :shock:

Exactly. The only thing is that youŽll need a rocket for yourself and one or two for the bag...
