Re: Who uses a vest to boost sleep systems warmth?
- Always a double space blanket under my HH SS, any time of year.
??? I am a diehard SB user over the Underpad of my HH Supershelter,
but have not heard of using a *double* SB before.
How and why do you use two?
Two SB's taped together, one on the other with packing tape around
the edges makes them more durable, and, adds a little stiffness, so
it stays put better.It moves around to cover the entry opening quite
easily. The SB is much larger than the hammock at the head end, and
folds out between the hammock and over the undercover. It does not
however add any heat advantage. A small piece of something (like the
yellow pack towel) under the hips may be needed to absorb moisture
from condensation that is easily transfered there from compression.
I had origonally tried getting into the taped together SB's. As you
can guess, it didn't take long to become very wet from condensation.
I plan to try using a SB on top on my next trip, with a lite fleece
- Cara Lin,
Have you thought about adding a "solid barrier"
between you and the soggy fog?
Perhaps Ed's 10' x 11' Winter Tarp?
