    Well done sir. I keep a cheap Dollar store one in my winter kit, makes a nice addition to the insulation system.
    Good luck,

    Fourdog, what are you using for the pod? Is it specifically a pod or "just" a mummy bag with top zipper?

    It's a sleep system that can be used as a pod,sleeping bag and bed quilt.

    This video explains it better;

    Thanks Fourdog, what that looks pretty slick! (and drats another item for the "what do I want to get" list :-D)

    [edit], so where would a fellow get one of those bags? In the video it sounded like you were maybe offering them but I don't see it on you website. Is it a custom order from wiggy's?

    I use mine as a sit pad too.
    One of the most useful, cheap, lightweight pieces of kit I own.
    I recently bought 3 of them to try for a full blown sock in reflector foam..I'll do a photo shoot soon.

    I slide mine between the hammock and the quilt.

    Found mine at the $1.00 store for an actual dollar (+ tax)

    Good stuff Don. You have been a youtube blitz lately. Good work!!

    I have them made special order from Wiggys. If you would like to try one I see you are in Apple Valley so your welcome to come up and try one.

    I'm getting one. I should of taken a better look at your sleep system at FBH. But, I noticed you just uploaded a bunch of new videos.

    Looks like I'm eating breakfast with fourdog. Thanks for posting these vids!

    Smile Windshield reflectors

    I've used spray adhesive to glue a piece of fleese cut to fit and it creates a dead air space between me and the reflective and it works great.
