TED bugnet design sock a success on HH Safari!
I had the chance to test the DIY sock this weekend in the Adirondacks. The temps went into the teens and I was toasty(literally hot). I hung without the sock and thermarest in the same temp range a month ago and was uncomfortably cold.
I am a hot sleeper, but here's what I had:
Top Insulation - military modular sleep system, no bivy, open as top quilt
Bottom Insulation - 2 Walmart ccf pads, and a military XL thermarest (all nicely contained in my DIY SPE)
Clothing - ECWCS Gen III silk weight base, ECWCS Gen III polypropylene top and bottom, ECWCS Gen III fleece jacket(which i unzipped),wool socks, and a balaclava(which I removed)
I am very excited that I was more than just warm, as I am confident I can push lower than the teens with this setup. My feet got a little cold once when they pressed against the hammock side through the topquilt.
Thank you JustJeff for the SPE design, and thanks to Lost_Biker and all the others for guidance on making the TED Bugnet design work for a sock!
