These are the sizes Selk’Bag recommend you choose:

The rule of thumb for fitting the Selk’Bag is that if you are a larger male and undecided which size to get, size up. On the other hand, if you are female and in the same situation, choose the smaller size.
In addition, think about how you will be using it. While a larger fit will provide a better sleeping experience a tighter fit will be more practical for walking in.

Always looking for ways to improve up its already well-loved products, Selk’Bag introduces the 5G Original sleeping bag suit, the latest and fifth generation of the Original Musuc Bag. This latest version has been designed to be the best Selk’Bag yet!

This fifth generation is designed to move with you even better than the 4G musuc bag, no matter what your activity of choice, even better than any of the previous iterations. The 'onesie sleeping bag', often also referred to as the 'sleeping bag with arms and legs', offers great mobility. The booties are removable (with zippers) so that you’re able to wear shoes appropriate to your activity. If you choose to walk around in the included booties, you’ll be happy to know that the sleeping bag with leg's soles have been given added grip. Additionally, hook and loop closures have been added to the ankle, wrist as well as the waist in order to allow even more refinement in fit.
Working from the outside-in, the 5G wearable sleeping bag is constructed of durable softshell nylon Ripstop fabric with a DWR finish. DWR (Durable Water Repellent) is the first line of defense against moist and wet weather and keeps your Selk’Bag from becoming saturated. It is a polymer that is applied to the face of the fabric, in this case the Ripstop Nylon forming microscopic hairs that protrude from the fabric. These hairs collect moisture into droplets, which in turn shed it from the fabric rather than spreading out and soaking through the fabric.
Inside of the nylon shell is a cosy Polyester Diamond 50D fill that features baffled sewn-through construction. This method ensures that the shell, insulation, and lining move together as one unit, which makes the construction and shape more adaptable to your body no matter which way you move. The Diamond 50D is sewn in 2 layers of 100grams per square meter which makes it heaver than the Selk’Bag Lite.
Added to the body is a similarly baffled and insulated hood to keep your head warm. The hood features a thermal collar and draw cord. Because openings as well as zippers are areas through which cold may creep, Selk’Bag stitched wider draft tubes at the zippers to hold your body’s warmth inside.
While holding warmth in is paramount, leg zips have been added so that you’re able to vent excess heat if sitting by the campfire is your activity of choice.
The shape of the 5G has been cut more anatomically than other Selk’Bags which allows not only more comfort, but also lighter weight due to the removal of excess fabric. Two front entry zippers make donning and doffing the 5G quick.
Extra touches such as a kangaroo pocket for your hands or gear and a small front chest storage pocket for valuables further the usability of the 5G. The zipper tape has been redesigned to reduce snags on the fabric.
The comfort temperature is 7 degrees Celsius, which is ideal for those summer days that start warm but then get a bit chilly once the sun heads below the horizon.
I have just received my suit and am very impressed with it apart from one factor there is no way of using the toilet which doesn't involve removing the complete suit. For men they may urinate, but for anything else and women it is a full suit removal.
