nut, cut the nylon sealing tape by inserting a knifeblade point into
the tape on the container joining seam and by cutting the four sides
of the container. Remove the container top and remove the
sleeping bag from the container. Shake the sleeping bag until the
bag filling expands, making the sleeping bag warmer and more
comfortable. After use, turn the bag inside out to allow
condensation to dry out. The bag is a one time use item and
cannot be repacked, but must be replaced if opened.
