Snagged a late '80s Slumberjack 40* mummy bag from Goodwill for $5!!! Its a "Micro Biker .875", with Dupont Microloft. I guess one of Duponts early synthetic downs. Fluff is a bit compressed, but its broken in nicely, and is super comfy. And a few quick fluffs of the fill and it seems to puff up enough in my mind. In perfect condition, and zipper works perfect!
Now to the questions, if you had found this, what would you do to it for hammocking? Should i cut off the zipper? Put any grosgrain tabs on the sides for keeping it in place? Sew a port in the end of the footbox so my hammock can thread through it? Or just leave it like it is and roll?
Just looking for ideas as to how I can really dial it in for hammocking. I have two other mummies, but theyre both really really nice and im not willing to cut or sew on them at all. This one is nice, but for $5, im wanting to try my hand at DIY and see how I can improve on it.
Any and all ideas or comments are welcome!
