  1. Could anyone tell me what the name of the sleeping bag jacket combo from the gear guy’s article of December 2017? My kid was talking about it but he and I both cannot find his copy of the December 2017 issue. I would really like to get him it for Christmas, but I have no idea what it is and cannot find a hint of the item anywhere else on the internet.
