- Aug 29, 2006I tried something similar with a BA Cross Mountain bag a year or so
ago. I put velcro (loop) strips on the edges of the bottom of the bag
at hip and shoulder spots. Then I put hook velcro on some duct tape
tabs i had attached to CCF hip and shoulder wings. So I'd just slide
a ridge rest into the BA sleeve, velcro the extensions in place, and
sleep soundly and warmly all night long. At least, that was the plan.
Any movement at night would pull the wings off and I'd stil wake up
with cold spots. I haven't totally given up on the idea, but since I
made meself an underquilt it's not been a priority. I think with
wider/stronger velcro attachment points it could still be feasible.
