    Under blanket first. After you've tried it out, alone or along with a pad, you might find that you don't need the cocoon. If you mostly camp in the summer, the under blanket will probably be all you...

    The extra loops on the sides towards the ends (not in the center) could possibly help keep the UQ attached at the shoulder and foot. Unfortunately for me, I'm a lefty sleeper and these extra loops...
