I have been sleeping stealth in the Catskill Mountains for the past week. It has snowed rained and sleeted.. As a unit the pea pod and the Claytor Hammock work great together to keep someone like me warm. I like the simplicity of hanging up a hammock and using the Pea Pod as under and over insulation. I think that I could survive the winter doing this routine. The Pea Pod might not look that pretty or refined but it does keep me warm. Each day I take down my hammock and set it up somewhere else in the woods around Hunter Mountain. Everynight I have been sleeping in a different location. Since I am being stealth and invisible nobody in the town of Hunter suspects me of hammocking in their own backyards.. Doing this is fun.
