RE: [Hammock Camping] Exped wallcreeper PL
I've owned the medium-sized, synthetic fill Wallcreeper for
two years now. It's as Chet described, somewhat narrow at
the chest when you have your arms inside. Being of small
stature (although of runaway girth) it works for me.
I doubt that the medium size would work as a peapod. Being
so narrow, you'd be putting an awful strain on the zipper.
It does work as a boxy down vest, as advertised. I also use
it as a quilt, and it works just fine that way too.

Does anyone own or know much about this sleeping bag?
It looks very interesting because you can lounge around camp
too and save some weight on clothing.

- Thanks Chet. I will have to look into it further before I decide.
Wehre I hike, I think a outter peapod style cover that goes down to
about freezing would be enough.
