I have been sleeping in a Claytor no net hammock inside a Speer Pea Pod for the last couple nights in the Catskill mountains. I also use a hammock sock to stop the wind from robbing me of my body heat. Does anyone else on this forum regularly use the Claytor no net hammock combined with a Pea Pod.. It seems to be the perfect simple set up and survival system for warmth.

But of course: I do! Though lately I have been experimenting with other excellent options, like a JRB BMBH/MWUQ combo. I discovered this wonderful combo back in the spring of 08, then used it that fall on my Wind River, WY trip. No top quilt, just my warm pants plus jacket and vest layered on top, sometimes worn backwards. It was good enough ( just barely on top, plenty warm on bottom always) in the mid 20s, and toasty at 30 and above. This is also the trip where I discovered that if I was on my side, with my face on the edge of the hammock, I could rotate the pod so that the breathing hole was on the side, This allowed full head and face coverage while exhaling out the side of the hammock. The pod would be laying right on top of my face/head, very warm.
