Each week we highlight a few of the more interesting items in the upcoming Aldi ad. Note that, in our area, the ad takes effect on Wednesday, but in some areas it may take effect as early as today, Sunday.
This week’s theme includes camping/outdoor gear, air conditioners and other hot-weather accessories, kitchen items, and workout clothing and accessories. Be sure to check out our reviews and summaries of Aldi’s camping gear at this link and also at this link.
The Most Interesting Thing We Saw:
- Adventuridge Wearable Sleeping Bag, $39.99. I don’t know how often most people need wearable sleeping bags, but this item certainly caught my eye because it’s so unique. Also, the models in the ad had some fun with poses. Just take a look at the guy in the photo above. The sleeping bag comes in sizes Small through Large. Small/Red is for 5’1″-5’6″ height, Medium/Green is for 5’7″-6′ height, and Large/Blue is for 6’1″-6’8″ height. The sleeping bag has removable feet for use with shoes, an easy access hand pouch, side leg zips for ventilation, kangaroo pockets for added warmth, fully insulated body and hood, dual zipper access for easy entry, toggle drawstring at ankle for comfort, elastic waistband for a snug fit, and a front pocket and internal chest pocket.
