LONG - Re: Oh Boy, Cold Wars II, winding up!
- Thank you very much for your lengthy and clear explanation.
I think I understand it all but am not convinced that the forced
convection does not force cold air at least partway into the foam,
causing the loss of some of the insulating value of the closed-cell
I have to get out and experiment.
I did not properly describe my alternative hammock idea. It is a
single layer hammock. The material used to make the hammock consists
of three parallel strips of material. Two strips of windproof
material with a strip of uncoated material in between, sort of like
two red stripes on the flag with a white stripe in between.
Since the stripes go from end to end it seems that the strength of
the hammock would not be compromised. The stripes would of course be
sewn together. The purpose is to have windproof material along the
sides and breathable material below (to control condensation).
Does this idea make any sense to anybody.
Thanks for any feedback. --David
