Sorry about the long delay. Things got crazy and work, and well,….you know.
Anyway, here your notes for the NEMO test.
Please fix and upload when read.
Shoulder Girth: 64 in (162 cm)
Hip Girth: 60 in (152 cm)
Knee Girth: 68 in (172 cm)
Packed Size: 14.5 x 9 in (37 x 23 cm)
Compressed Volume: 6.5 L (1.72 US Gallons)
>>>Are these your measurements, or from the manufacturer? If the latter, please add your own measurements.
EDIT: * Adjustable Contoured Hood - drawstring control of shape and size of open
EDIT: * Tuckable Blanket Fold - insulated flap can be tuck in or folded out of bag to adjust warmth
EDIT: * Offset Quilting - even insulation distribution to eliminates drafts and cold spots
>>>Either "to eliminate" or "eliminates"
EDIT: Larger ones trap heat and provide warmth. While thinner ones provide softness, loft and compactibility.
>>>I think this should be one sentence
>>>Also, I don't think `compactibility' is a word. Maybe `compressibility'?
EDIT: the advantage of a continuos filament
Edit: One has the following care instructions, hand wash or machine wash …
>>>Change the comma after `instructions' to a colon
EDIT: The last one I read list the materials the bag consist of, country of origin, name and address of company it's sold by and finished size of the item, 78 x 29.25 in (198 x 75 cm).
>>>My English teacher would hate the fact that you are ending clauses with prepositions, but you can leave if you like or re-word ("The last one I read listed the bag's materials, country of origin, name and address of the company, and finished size…")
Edit: The last piece of information really surprised me and caused me to more carefully measure the bag. Sure enough the bag is a size regular!
>>>Since I hate to split infinitives, I suggest "to measure more carefully"
