    Another application for one of these bags is as a cheap underquilt instead of trash bags. Stuff a mylar blanket or two in. This material is quite useful and I expect this large bag format has more applications.

Do I need a zipper in the middle or an opening like a fronkey bugnet?
    why not a drawstring under you instead of a zipper. this is how I built my daughters bugnet. shock cord easier to find that a 3 foot zipper too. all you need is a CRL, and that is no big deal at all. will try to add pic later.

    I might give this a try. Has anyone tried this below freezing yet?

    I'm wondering if this can be used as a UQP/end protector. I'm picturing two bags with the strings over the ends and cut quite dramatically on the top, so it looks like when people put garbage bags on the end, but yet is left longer and sewn together on the bottom. Not a full on sock, a bit more warmth and some added moisture protection from the ends and underside?

    Would this work? I'm thinking of using it this way with a smaller tarp for when it rains.

    I caught this man's video on youtube where he made a winter sock cover (and an added, no sew zipper) out of a frost blanket made for plants. Cool idea!
