Girl Scout Sleeping Bags

The first official Girl Scout sleeping bag - with the GS emblem, was offered in the 1938 catalog. During some years sleeping bags were offered but did not seem to have the GS emblem or any other way to identify it as Girl Scout, and therefore are not listed here.

1938 - 1945

The sleeping bag design has changed a bit, it's a full pound heavier that the earlier model, and the canopy is open on the sides.
