I’ve been working from home for the last decade, but as a travel and gear writer, I’ve always broken up the at-home monotony with plenty of work trips. Now, I see the same four walls all. the. time. Small comforts make all the difference, and when I find a product that excels during the work-from-home pandemic era but will ALSO transition to campouts, air travel, and road tripping, I’m a happy camper. Yes, pun intended.
Sierra Designs Down Moc slippers fit the bill, with cozy 800 fill DriDown hugging your footies. You get 100 percent recycled Polyester Taffeta and a tricot lining, plus elastic cuffs that are both comfortable and also seal in warmth.
You can wear these slippers outside, too–think quick bathroom or coffee breaks from the camper van or tent–because they feature silicone bottom soles. The midsole is PE foam, so you get a soft landing with each footfall, and the slippers are lightweight and stuffable and packable. I can definitely see bringing these in my carry-on the next time I fly…whenever that may be.
In the meantime, they’re my go-to daily ‘shoe’ for around the house as I work from home, and my go-to camping slipper. Pick up a pair at Sierra Designs for $69 in one of three colors: brick, blue, and gray. The sizing is small, medium, and large, so be sure to consult their sizing chart before buying.
