Does any one hear have experience using vests for making a bag or
quilt or pod warmer, and if so, how helpful was it? Do you feel that
it is a lot of warmth for the weight, or not so much?
Yes, I use bib ski pants, and a quilted polyester vest for temps down
to the high 30's.
With only a fleece hoodie, (or parka/windbreaker), and double wool
socks, and lite fleece blanket. Always a double space blanket under
my HH SS, any time of year. The ski pants, and vest are inexpensive,
and, compress down quite well. This combination allows good movement
inside the hammock, and also getting up at night. Neither items are
expensive, purchased at discount stores, or off season, but, would
sure use down if I could afford it.
