Foot opening: The double foot zips allow the feet to be exposed while the bag still covers the rest of the body. This ensures optimum ventilation for warmer nights. Stitching: The stitching is not stitched through, which means it’s a double-layered bag. This ensures that you never lose your body heat through the bag, and therefore enjoy a more relaxed sleep.
