I haven't been camping in over 2 years, but I love my sleeping bag. I realized in the last month or so, that sleeping in a nooksack rated for 35F was generally more energy-efficient and effective than blasting a space heater in my bedroom that on the coldest nights rarely managed to get the ambient temperature past 64F. Hey, it's an old building. At least I don't have to turn the heat off when I cook, like in the last place.

I've been using my sleeping bag again since the cat harfed on my bed. It's also nice to sit in front of the computer in it when the morning is cold. I've noticed something, though. Dirt and cat hair brush off the surface of the sleeping bag way easier than they do off cotton. Or even off the surface of my allergy cover. A search for "nylon duvet cover" turns up only plush stuff. But I might try to find some appropriate fabric and try to make one myself. Hmm, maybe cotton on one side and nylon on the other. As nice as it feels as bedding material, cotton duvets seem to attract cat hair pretty well, and the sleeping bag seems to repel it.

Of course, it could also be that Dini has been hanging out on the sheets instead of on/in my sleeping bag.
