head to toe. However, it just took too long to do up the ten central
buttons with my eyes shut and from the inside. So I got rid of the
buttons, and added the zipper.
Actually, the travel pod is a little tight right at my neck, leaving
less room for air to collect. I think I will add an inch there,
giving me a little more dead air space. The best way to do the zipper
is to have an opening zipper at the foot end and to close the last 18
inches with buttons. That way it can easily be added to an already
hanging hammock in the middle of a colder than expected night.
It remains a work in progress.
