edges but between the wings. At about the waist or knees, the
zipper starts to "V" in towards the ankles. Here's the important
part - the zipper is on separate sides, and one side has a
slider...and the zipper is sized to match popular bags. So you
could take a full-zip Western Mountaineering bag, and this modified
SPE, and turn it into a ready-made winter hammock solution.
Then when you're not in the hammock, you still have a full pad and
normal sleeping bag.
