With the clouds, the moisture went in sideways or even up, coating everything.
A good tarp with the doors closed (like my Superfly) will stop a lot, but I got a 2QZQ UQP and it really adds a level of protection. In addition, I found that it adds about 10* (when combined with my DangerBird's overcover). I would think that a sock would do about as much.
I saw a video of the HangnOutDerigible on YouTube, which seemed like a good idea (part Cuben Fiber/Breathable Cuben Fiber sock).
Did you have the Superfly during that fog event when every thing got wet? What about the 2QZQ UQP, have you found that to block the fog adequately? Is it Sil-nylon or breathable?
For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.
