- Jan 26, 2007Hey Newz,
If you come up with any good ideas for an ice free night let me know. I just spent three nights hammock camping in 3 to 7 degrees and the only problem I had was the condensation build up.

Till the next problem :)
I just tried out my latest attempt at a cold weather setup.
I was very snug at zero F.
All of the gear was homemade. I had a travel pod (ala Risk) with a bag
of feathers inside. I had a two layer hammock with a 3/8 pad in
between. I used two quilts, each with 6oz primloft. one was draped
outside the hammock, so there was no compression of the loft by my
elbows. I was wearing a set of thermals, and some nice wool socks.
On my head was a balaclava and the hood of my parka, because I have
not made a sleep hat yet.
Now, my problem is too much condensation on the outer quilt. While I
slept, my head slipped inside the travel pod, and I awoke to a nice
little patch of ice under my chin.
I was thinking I might be able to fix this with a properly designed
sleep hat. Perhaps one inspired by the hood of a snorkel parka?
Any suggestions for a fix, or a source for a snorkel hood pattern?
Don't pick lemons.
