I often breathe into the inside of it when it is cold. The cloth over
my face gets moist, but it is warmer than freezing and it dries
quickly. It does not drip. Below 0 F, some frost accumulates inside
the fabric, but never much.
If it were waterproof, it would be like being inside a shower.
I have had a sprinkle start when I did not have a tarp up. The DWR
nature of the fabric is not much use in that condition. My quilt did
not get wet, but it would have if I had wasted a minute more.
Whenever I expect dew or frost, I put the tarp up. It keeps the dew
from forming on the top layer of the travelpod and the quilt.
