I've had that same problem from time to time. I really need to start
taking notes on exact temps, humidity etc... but I think it is worse
when humidity is low. Why? Well I seem to remember the most
condensation buildup on a few fall trips when humidity is usually
the lowest aroune my neck of the woods. But since I didn't take
notes I can't say for sure. I would think just the opposite would be
true ie higher humidity = more condensation. I really need to be
more observant!!! However adding a fleece layer on top of the
reflectic helps. It seems to allow moisture to evaporate but still
the center of my pad gets damp from time to time. I think a thicker
fleece would help me. Also I dont understand what you mean by
facing down. Reflectix is the same on both sides. Unles there is
another reflectix I'm not aware of. But reguardless I think the
reflective side to whatever you have should face up.
