    I don't need to try anything else because the Tube works for me.

    I'm no engineer, but I think because I can't make the holes on the end the same size, I always get a small airflow through the tube, which prevents condensation from building up.

    It seems you are taking experiences from other systems and applying them to the Survival Tube that frankly don't apply.....

    FYI.. another comfy night in the Tube last night... Low temp 50....
    no i have used one...and on the east coast i had really bad condensation problems ... i tried one about 3 years ago and like i said...there is a reason lots of hangers don't use them
    can they work for some sure ...but it's not a replacement for an UQ ...not by a long shot
    i lived in Hemet CA for 2 years back in 2000 ...i miss the weather alot
    and earthquakes LOL ....
    It puts the Underquilt on it's hammock ... It does this whenever it gets cold

    I don't know about Dave, but I don't use it with my head inside it. I have it pulled tight under my chin and around the back of my shoulders.

    I quite like the look of insultex (don't know how accessible it is here in the UK) but I love down and idea of a lovely, thick down UQ seems heavenly to me. If I used my hammock more than I do then I'd definitely get myself one.

    IX is pretty cheap and 3 layers will get you down to freezing no problem...
    i know a few of the vendors ship outside the US...might want to ask around

    i like the survival tube idea when i was using it but the condensation was bad
    and i know my one buddy tried it as well and his wasn't as bad as mine but he still had some .....
    IX is really easy to work with and there are lots of great threads on it if you do a search you could make a nice UQ for under $50
