Re: [at-l] A summer bag



Mine has ties and I just wrap it around my 20-degree for extra warmth.  a 
zipper'd add weight.  Make it a toughie and leave a good inch-wide edge all 
along it on the inside so's you don't tear up you or your bed clothing on 
the teeth.  (Used alone they don't shut out a breeze at all ...)
