Since the canvas is rather heavy and weather affects things below, I'm wondering what proportion of lightweight DWR fabric to utilize down there. Does 60/40 sound about right?
Next decision: enveloping the hammock and UQ like a pod or WV's small footprint idea?
That should be fine. As for which type, I like the sock a lot. Mine is built like the Ted Bug Net with a piece of shock cord on one side - easy entry and exit with my WBBB. The other side is static and stays in the same spot. It's sized to go around my hammock and great big down uq I made last month.
Pod or small footprint? I don't really know what temps you have there, but where I am, it gets to single digits. For an all in one, I would have to go with a pod type and vent when needed. It's a hard choice to finalize what works till you actually try it. We get really hard wind here and my dwr sock blocks most of it and also stops the driving rain (sideways) that gets past the tarp. I've also built in so many ways to vent or button up tight so I have a more versatile all in one piece of gear. Alas, it's still going thru changes, but the basic sock design stays the same.
Have I confused you more?
