    Bbo

    I'm a bit claustrophobic. Would a BBO drive me crazy? Does a BBO hold in a lot more heat than a tarp?

    The BBO for me is NOT claustrophobic, no different than a small cover overlaying your netting and ridgeline. It will hold more heat than a tarp, though because of that it will also create a point for condensation when the outside air is cooler.

    Bear Burrito Oven for a BlackBird. Adds about 10 degrees of warmth (your results may vary). Got for for my wife's BB and she loves it.

    Available from Arrowhead Equipment in a variety of colors.

    Picture is of wife getting out of her BB with a color matching BBO.

    BBO= Bear Burrito Oven from Arrowhead Equipment, a breathable "top cover" for a WBBB that goes over the netting and ridgeline.

    I haven't used it personally, but last weekend i was hanging with a friend who uses the BBO, he said that it felt 10-15dg warmer "inside" with noticeably lower condensation. (when i find some fundings im getting one)

    Judy has that affliction and she uses a night light. Would a low power LED (just enough to give comfort and not kill the battery) for night light work for you too?

    I have a camo one, can see through it in daylight & it is held Way off of me by the ridgeline (It's on top of the bug netting) so limited from a closet-phobia POV.
    Around 5 this morning mine got too warm so I had to half uncover it. I agree that it adds at least 10 degrees, maybe as much as 20 YMMV. So more than a open tarp. A closed ended tarp can add nearly 10 degrees IMHO so,,,,,,,,

    IF you sleep cold, pound for pound a "Hammock sock" or similar cover like the BBO can mean the difference between being cold all night & sleeping the night away. The lower half of my "similar to a hammock sock" is a 1X by Molly Mac. Combined they add at least 20 - 30 degrees to my comfort level.
    When you have a backpack on, no matter where you are, youre home.
