Re: [Hammock Camping] answering natures call and staying warm.
- ha ha!
on the energy part though... taking something warm away from the
body should result in a net loss of warmth... or something like
that. might be ofset by the energy used to hold it? I know it is
a wierd topic and wide open for all kinds of jokes but when I read
the article it just sounded like it might just be wrong on that one
(wives tale etc)

I have no direct experience of the conversion kit. Based on
what I've read and heard, the kit accomplishes two things.
First, it lets you wear the liner while you're wearing the
poncho. Second, it converts the liner into a zippered
I've never tried to use the poncho as a sleeping bag. I use
it only in a hammock, and have given up putting anything
between me and the hammock that can be compressed.
It's certainly large enough to make a bag. It has tieout
straps all around the edges, so in a pinch you could tie it
into a bag and sleep with the open seam down. At least that
would let you try it out as a bag.
