I'm not sure what kind of condensation it is, but I'd bet some of it is sweat. I was pretty warm when I first got into the hammock. I had on some pretty warm layers too. However, what surprised me was that the condensation made it down to the undercover when I used the spaceblanket. I thought I had the spaceblanket set up pretty well where it was covering all of my underside, but maybe not.
That is just a thought, I will await the Master BillyBob and his reply.
On a side note, how does the jarbridge fit under the pad but inside the undercover. It sure looks like it works well. I have a HHSS and love it, I have a new underquilt and have been wondering if it would work layered as you have done it or if I needed to hang it under everything if needed.
The Jarbidge works pretty well like this. It helps holds the ocf pad up to your body and adds insulation up a little higher on the sides. The fit inside the undercover is just fine. However, with my condensation issues I would probably balk at putting in a down-stuffed underquilt and stick with synthetic.
Thanks for the pics and I hope we figure this one out. It seems the HHSS works real well but once in a while produces moisture.
Glad you enjoyed the pics. I think this current setup was about at its lower temperature range for me - I could maybe get down to 15*F and avoid shivering. In regards to usefulness, this is fine because I don't think I would ever intend to camp in colder weather than this. But in my mind, I would still like to be able to be comfortable at lower temperatures. In order for that to happen, I would basically have to upgrade everything including my clothes.
Oh, I'm also wondering what BillyBob will say as well
