"Camping is so much more comfortable now... I don't think I'll ever sleep in a tent again."
-Lance Williams Creative Director/ Founder
About a year ago my wife and I launched a sleeping bag hammock on Kickstarter and it was very successful. Since then we’ve continued to learn a lot about hammocks and what makes a good camping experience in a hammock.
We’ve applied this knowledge to the Bison Bag G2!
There are two main changes that we made for the G2.
1. We switched the hammock to polyester, so that both the sleeping bag and hammock are polyester. This will allow it to flex together as one and reduce any separation between the bag and hammock.
2. We added a gap in-between the hammock and bag, which creates triple layer insulation. The sleeping bag is the first layer which keeps the heat in. The second layer is the small hot air space between the hammock and sleeping bag and the third is the actual hammock layer itself. The way the G2 is set up, you won't need to sleep with any kind of pad or blanket (depending on the temperature); the Bison Bag will be the only insulation that you need.
The Bison Bag was created not only for a great camping experience, but also for a comfortable back yard getaway or a relaxing accessory to take to the park. We’re excited for the G2 and for the endless possibilities for the future. Please check out the pledges below and take advantage of the lower price point that we have on Kickstarter! If the Bison Bag isn’t for you, we would love for you to pass it on to a friend! Thanks so much for your time and support!
The awesome thing about a Bison Bag is that everything (sleeping bag, hammock, rope, carabiners) fits within the sleeping bag sack. Thus, you don't have to worry about forgetting anything!
Rated to 55 Degrees, but can be used in lower temperatures when using a pad.

We didn't come up with this design over night. We carry around this book with us and whenever we have a new idea we draw it up.
The G2 bags are the result of months of testing and design changes and your feedback! We have established a relationship with a reputable manufacturer and are confident that they can produce these bags after our project ends. At the completion of a successful project we will put in an order and then each Bison Bag will be shipped out to our backers! This whole process should take about 100 days after the close of the project.
Where are the funds going?
All pledges are going towards the second production run of Bison Bag. We will use the money towards purchasing polyester, microfiber, production/assembly costs, and packaging.
We are really happy with where we have taken this design and we need your support to make it happen! Please help us get the Bison Bags G2 into production and sent all over the world!
Thanks so much for your support!
Risks and challenges
A necessary risk, as always, is working with a manufacturer. We've done everything that we can to ensure quality and timely manufacturing of the Bison Bags. Once received, shipping our product is another beast, but fortunately neither of these things are new to us. I can assure you that the product we create will meet, if not exceed, your expectations!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
