Star Wars Tauntaun carcass sleeping bag

ThinkGeek's Star Wars Tauntaun carcass sleeping bag ($99.99) will keep you as warm as a Jedi Knight, whether you're on the ice planet Hoth or a vacation campground.

Hans Solo slit open the belly of a dead, thick-skinned Tauntaun and placed Luke Skywalker inside to keep him from freezing to death.

The fully licensed Lucasfilm™ Collectible "stimulates the warmth of a Tauntaun carcass." This high-quality sleeping bag features a built-in embroidered Tauntaun head pillow, a saddle, printed internal intestines and plush light saber zipper pull.

Measuring 33 in wide x 67 in long (not including head pillow or legs), the Tauntaun carcass is roomy enough for adults and lots of fun for kids 3 and up. With a plush interior and 100% polyester construction exterior, the sleeping bag is machine washable.

Sexy Hotness sleeping bag

The Sexy Hotness sleeping bag ($149) is great for secret campfire trysts, but it's also practical in countless other ways!

Zippers on both sides of the bag enable you to connect together as many sleeping bags as you'd like. And Sexy Hotness is extra roomy, making it perfect for those needing a little more space.

Centrally located middle zippers are ideal for the X-rated campers, but they also enable you to walk around without getting out of the bag. And built-in padded slippers really come in handy for those middle-of-the-night bathroom breaks.
