Rugged hammocks have become a popular way to enjoy the outdoors lately, but for all the clever modular solutions we’ve covered, none have integrated a sleeping bag. Outdoor Vitals is trying to change that with the MummyPod, a sleeping bag for campers who want an all-in-one solution to stay warm while hanging around on cold nights.

Outdoor Vitals is billing the MummyPod as an integrated “sleep system.” It’s made up of three basic parts, all of which can be purchased separately or combined to create the fully formed chrysalis pictured above. The base hammock is able to hold 300 lb (136 kg), and attaches to sturdy trees with double-looped polyester straps securing 7/64-in whoopie straps. The hammock by itself weighs just 13.4 oz (379 g).

The sleeping bag is remarkably easy to attach to the hammock. To start with, you simply feed the hammock through the unzipped foot-box of the sleeping bag and pass it out the head hole. Once it’s hanging loosely around the hammock, it’s simply a matter of securing it to same tree (or stand) as the hammock, and tightening the included cables to make sure the bag isn’t drooping.

There are a few different bags on offer, starting with a synthetic-lined version rated to 30° F (-1° C) and running to a down-lined sleeping bag rated to 0° F (-18° C). All the bags are made of water-resistant RipStop fabric, and the zippers are all YKK units designed to minimize snagging. The final piece of the puzzle is a hexagonal tarpaulin, designed to hang above the hammock and protect you from the elements.
