More than one passerby of this space didn't let me get away with suggesting that a mighty fine air mattress could pass for bonafide camping equipment. The resounding rejections pointed right at how cold and unreliable air mattresses are.
That brings us to the NEMO Tango Duo sleeping bag . . . thing. If nothing else, you can clearly see the great advantage to the Tango Duo, emphasized in its name and pictured above. The Tango Duo isn't an air mattress, but a new take on the ol' sleeping bag. NEMO calls it a backless comforter. It mates up to NEMO's Cosmo or Tuo inflatable pads (which ever you want) for the ultimate deluxe backcountry bed for two certified sweetie snugglers under 6' tall who want the width of a queen size bed. Tucking in a way that traps in the warmth, even at your precious toes and head, and using high-performance fabrics the whole system promises to be comfortable, reliable, cozy, and lightweight. indeed, it sleeps two for the weight penalty of one: 2lbs 12 oz. To some, that's worth the price of admission alone.
Personally, I put no price on the ability to cuddle . . .
