Sustainable Sleep

Over the years, some of my most memorable surf trips have found me camping on far-flung beaches. I love roughing it but lately I’ve been thinking about all the petroleum that’s used to manufacture the tents, sleeping bags and such that I bring along and it’s not pretty. Thankfully now there are greener options.
One of my favorites is the Kelty Forecast 40 sleeping bag. This mummy-style bag is made mostly from post-consumer materials including a 100% recycled polyester shell and liner, plus Climashield Green insulation (which uses 60% recycled materials) even the zipper is made of 55% post-consumer material. At 2lbs 8oz it is relatively lightweight and packs down small. The Forecast is rated to 40ºF (4.44ºC) so it’ll be plenty warm for most surf trips, and since this bag is made of synthetic insulation (instead of down, which loses its warmth if it gets wet) it is a good choice for camping in damp climates, like many of the places we surf.
