    question about ww ccf pads

    Just a quick question for you guys, why is it that a ground sleeper can use a blue ccf pad, and an under quilt with no problem, but in a hammock with the same set up, you have condensation issues, and probably cbs?
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )


    Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.

    Airflow around the hammock is the culprit. A ground sleeper has no air passing under the pad and the ground add some insulating qualities.

    Lack of condensation issues is likely due to the sleeper moving around more than they would in a hammock. You know, cause it's uncomfortable on the ground.
    Trust nobody!
