    Great Vid as always Shug

    The small amount of frost on the hammock, was that near your knee areas?

    I would have expected a bit more at the footbox area where the insulation was thinner bit it looked good.

    I have found that the Frost bib, or something similar, is a must do in any cold weather situation to avoid wetting the down in front of your face.

    I just may have to work on the bag extender insert, I only need a number 5 zipper and the motivation to do it

    That's a great video, do you find it hard to lay ASYM in it, it looks a bit constricting do you find that to be true or not? Also I love what you do with your jacket how you zip it around the foot end. I am def going to start doing that little trip for sure, it may give me that little extra boost of warmth my tootsies need to stay warm. Also love the xtra footage that's what I call eye hand coordination something I know nothing about. I do hope one day either in MD or in Minnesota I get to catch one of your shows they look so entertaining oohh yeah and cant forget love me that blue grass, who's doing the picking in the video?
    Sometimes I like to hike and think, And sometimes I just like to hike.

    Hiking is'ent about waiting for the storm to pass its about learning to hike in the rain.

    If mummy bags made ya' feel that way ....then this would. I can put my legs in a four though. Mainly tighter at the feet.

    I am happy with the fleece bib. Just un-hook and put it in a pocket to thaw and dry out.

    Did you feel somewhat bound up inside?

    Love the "man-cave"! It's always cool to see what's in the background of people's videos/pics.
    I feel good in there to be honest. Lots of down around me. Mainly looking at it for serious winter up here and after reading results on the MN Cold Butt Hang I had to try myself.
    I love this place....

    Yeah TZ ....more around the thigh and knees. That is where I was hot! I was surprised there was not more in the footbox too.
    Let me know on the extender....I too want to do that.

    Just a bit less of an asym lay. Very comfy though. I don't feel constricted at all ....but some folks might.
    The extra down over the footbox helps for sure ...especially if your not using it.
    That is me and my buddy Mark playing in the video. Thankeeeeeee

    We fellas with a small shack learn to deal with it.

    I find if I trim the hedges back on either side it makes it look bigger. In the end I think I'll just have to make up for it by buying a big sportscar.
