Two Slik bags showing the roomy mummy style with center zip Kifaru Slik Bag I picked up a 'Slik' bag from Kifaru’s shop in Denver in September 2015, and over the last couple of years have tested it across various environments and temperatures.   Kifaru mainly seem to specialize in their packs and Tipi tents but have been making these bags for quite some time, they also make an insulated jacket using the same fabric and insulation(Lost Park Parka-https://hardyardshunting.co.nz/2019/05/12/kifaru-lost-park-parka/).
