Thanks so much. In the video you mentioned you put in a ccf pad. That was just lying on the floor of the sock, right? If that's the case, I see how you could drop the second layer.
Also, have you found condensation to be an issue? I'm usually in very high humidity situations, even when it's cold.(38 deg F, 80-90%% humidity)
I'm hesitant to make it out of Silnylon for fear of condensation. I might try DWR nylon first. Thoughts from others?
I've recently made some changes to my setup. I discovered that I could shorten my hammock by a foot and still be comfortable. And that meant that I could shorten my sock by a foot, but I was lothe to cut my sock after all the work.
Then I discovered that I could adjust the length of the sock bottom by pulling on the elastic draw cord along the edge of the top opening. I was able to adjust the size of my hammock sock by a whole 12" without any cutting!
I also discovered that by not resizing the tarp, it would attach farther up the suspensiion lines, giving me more coverage and air flow, while still conforming to the shape of the hammock.
However I did cut and resew my bug net. It didn't cost very much ;o)
I had looked at several different materials to build my sock from, but settled on the lightest silnlyon I could find because of the weight and strength, but also because it would repel the rain and wind. The concept was to create a micro-environment that offered a variety of setup options. I figured with the top separate from the bottom, any condensation would run off to the sides. And with the bottom standing separate from the hammock, any condensation on the bottom would run down and away from the hammock and bottom insulation.
You can either use the Attachments Button located at the very top part of the action bar, 3 icons to the right of the fonts menu. Or click on the Image box which will alow you to past a Direct Link to the image location on the web. So if you upload your photos using www.photobucket.com you can get the Direct links from there and past them in the image location box that pops up when you hit the Image Button. Either method works fine.
If you decide to upload as an attachment then make sure the picture file size and dimensions are correct. The website has limits.
