So it goes to reason that this method would work for me IF I use a synthetic sleeping bag so the compression wont have as much affect on the insulation.

    Thank you for posting this. You may have just solved my issue with this.

    I also found a thread that had a similar idea.
    The only thing I would consider is that nylon stretches over time.. if you're trying to loosen up the bottom layer, making it oversized with elastic might be the ticket...

    I just sent a message to someone asking about this. Which do they think is better. If I did this I would not use down between the layers but a synthetic instead. I'll wait on his response before I try either of them. I'll make the dual layer or buy the single layer double when the time comes. That time is coming fast though, the temps here have dropped quick and its 67 outside right now. Rather odd for this time of year. It seems as though we may just have a bad winter on our way in my area. CANT WAIT!!!!!
