Re: [Hammock Camping] Digest Number 843
I slipped a blue foam pad betweeen the open cell foam of the Undercover and
my hammock, then slept in my undies (At 55 I'm able to tell it like it is
without blushing, so forget it!) with my Nunatuck BCB over me. It was raining, so
it was above freezing, but it was cold and DID snow the next night in Hot
Springs. I'm wondering how closely your fly is battened down? If the fly is
closed up with just enough vent to keep the condensation from the ridiculous
point, my hammock seems quite warm. I think I even had the BCB kicked off a lot of
the time. (Maybe it's the hot flashes???)
I do think most probably need more than the open cell to get below 50 F
comfortably. Did you add the space blanket? That does seem to help. I've not
done enough experimenting to give much advice, yet, but will start working on it.

I've considered fleece too but thought it would more heavy than I
need. I may end up having to do this though.
