    I really appreciate your point of view and all the details. I learn so much from all of you. What criteria do you look at when you want to determine the quality?

    Thank you for that information. I think the zippers say “ideal” on them. Wonder what year they used ideal zippers? Also wondering about quality level of these, too.
