well that confirms that i am definately a cold sleeper, i felt about the same way at 13*, that's a pretty big difference. i bet that's some kind of record for padless sleeping.
have you tried it without the sil shell yet??
Since I was dealing with some condensation issues inside the hammock last night, I'm pretty sure a 'sock' is my next project for this thing. With that, I bet sub-zero will be a walk in the park. The only problem is I've finally developed the agility to 'relieve' myself without leaving the hammock. A sock could complicate matters.
It does take careful consideration when placing boots/shoes outside the hammock for the evening. It only takes ONCE to remember to move the footwear a little closer to the head-end. LOL
Think I'll start trying to figure a way to "relieve" myself in my bridge.
Like water under the bridge.
Seriously, mastering a technique for this would be really nice in colder weather when getting out of the hammock is the last thing you want to do.
