The Military Sleeping Bag is the modern version of the original design that the military used during the Korean War; a center zip bag. A center zip bag is actually the best design for military application because when soldiers are in a combat zone they sleep in their clothing. In the event of an attack while sleeping, exiting their sleeping bag as quickly as possible becomes paramount. The Wiggy combination of a sleeping bag and optional bivi bag provides the easiest access from a sleeping bag while giving the greatest comfort.
The Military Sleeping Bag is fitted with Wiggys exclusive break-a-way zipper. All one needs to do is run the zipper ½ inch up and the top slider comes off of one tooth track which makes the teeth simple to quickly separate. The slider locks so when you are sleeping comfortably it will not run back causing you to suddenly awaken from a comfortable sleep by cold air settling from an accidentally open zipper. This is very important since it can not happen with a side zip bag. There is a bottom slider that will allow venting from the foot area if necessary. The sleeping bag is fitted with a generous, wide draft flap behind the zipper.
There are two rows of snaps, one on each side of the zipper of the Military Sleeping Bag. One row is male snaps and the other female snaps. They have two purposes; one to allow the bag to be closed in the unlikely event the zipper were to break. It is unlikely because the zipper is the YKK # 10 molded tooth zipper that Wiggy's has used for 22 years with virtually no field failures. The second reason is for the bag to attach to an optional bivi bag.
