    Hunter, yes, Herters had the bags with the covers as you described. I bought one when I was 14 or 15 when I was old enough and strong enough earn enough. I had worked before that but it always was so little that I could not afford such things. Mine was a 12 pound bag for very cold weather. Like many here, us kids would camp in the woods back then. That bag solved the sleeping in the cold problem. The food would freeze but we wouldn't. I can't say I ever used that cover though. We always were looking up at the stars and watching the falling ones. That was about the time we discovered plastic sheeting. It also helped us alot and was much better that stripping off bark to make shingles for our make shift shelters.
