my current set up from top down:
OES deluxe tarp
40+ sleeping bag (have a 20+ for colder temps, but didn't start hammocking until april )
blue walmart pad (torso length). keeps me decently warm but not very comfy
well i've thought up an idea as to using a goretex bivy (army surplus) inside my hammock when weather gets cold. or perhaps rigging up some sore of underquilt out of it (doubling as a splash guard)???
i scored the bivy for $15 and i'm hoping it can block enough wind and heat loss out of the bottom of my hammock. my top quilt is covered (PUN)
i'd really love to buy one of warbonnet's 3 season yeti's, but i have no bread (spent the last of my money saved on brian's spinn tarp)! just graduated from college WOO HOO...
will i run into condensation issues?
will the goretex just get cold and serve no purpose other than windblock?
