Selk'bag 4G Lite Review


The Selk'bag 4G Lite is something of an oddity. Maybe it's the fact that I live in sunny Florida and I don't exactly see the need for me to wrap myself in a human shaped sleeping bag to game. But I digress, it is pretty much the next step in Snuggies. Let me explain.

The Selk'bag 4G is essentially a sleeping bag, that you don't necessarily have sleep in, but instead you can wear while doing other things, like say gaming! The way it's constructed is that it keeps the heat inside, even in more than unnatural cold situations.

The outer covering is made up of soft polyester that's also water resistant, just incase you might spill your favorite energy drink while gaming into the late hours of the night. For extremely cold situations, you can even cover your head with a hood for extra added warmth. The body of the Selk'bag includes zippers that grant convenient access to various areas. The side zippers allow easy access for pockets, but where is the quick access on the front? If I need to go to the bathroom, there is no way for me to go the bathroom without fully taking it off. Sure the same can be said about an actual sleeping bag, but it's safe to say it's much easier to slip out of that, than it is out of one of these. As you can see from the picture above, the sleeves have convenient openings for when you want to pick up a controller, eat a hotdog, or do pretty much anything that requires the use of your hands.

For what it does, the Selk'bag works. It does provide an exceptional amount of heat, while leaving you pretty mobile to pretty much do anything around the house. To be fair, it's not exactly advertised to be used as a tool for freezing gamers, but rather people who like to spend time outdoors, where it usually is much colder than a gamers bedroom.

Is it something that gamers should flock to buy immediately? Probably not, unless you're living in Alaska, and any source of heat is currently unavailable to you. Though I do highly encourage for people who enjoy spending their free time outdoors, particularly in cold areas to give the Selk'bag 4G Lite a look. It works and it keeps you warm and fairly mobile.
