you are a side-sleeper like me. Then the best ideas break down. I will be experimenting with one of these this weekend:
Hopefully it will intercept the moist air before it soaks my TQ. I would rather have a damp polarfleece item than a damp down one.
While we are on the subject, soes anyone know of a down-filled hood along the lines of a JRB hood that also has a cape to cover the upper chest and upper back? Sort of like a chain-mail armor balaclava. I bet that would be toasty, and could have a rugff attached.
Edit: Mac, how about a pod with an "exhaust hood" to the pod's exterior? Wouldn't have to fit tightly, and the warm air from exhalation would create a chimney effect to carry the humidity out. Just brainstormin' here.
www.finnovations.org he makes what I think your looking for and was used by members of one of Steigers Expeditions to the North pole.
Looks like it would work well.

Re: the PeaPod openings...I've thought about just putting an 18" strip of velcro right above my head on the PeaPod. Not even sewing anything...just attaching raw velcro right to the PeaPod's velcro. That would keep it from sealing shut and make sure I always had ventilation. I haven't done it b/c I'd still be breathing inside the pod, so I don't like that idea. The PeaPod hood makes sure the I'm not actually breathing inside, which I like. My prototype is too big, though...could probably get by with half that size (and half the bulk and weight).

Exactly what I was looking for! I would be happy to buy you a legal beverage if we cross paths.
Now I need to call Brother Finn.
Glad to be of service. Injoy your time outside.
