[pct-l] Using Down Jacket with Half-bag

I have used my Gerry Alpine down coat in conjunction with a full-size
sleeping bag, though the technique should work with a half-bag as well.  The
trick is to pull the sleeves inside-out so they are inside the coat... then
put it on with your arms inside.  Keep the sleeves under you for additional
insulation and padding.  The insulation is used much more efficiently this
way, I think.
