    Just read the entire thread. Very nice job on the sock. Mine is just pull over tube ala Just Jeff. Condensation is not too bad but we don't get the cold here in Florida that you do there.

    Thank you, BearBurrito! I've been using it here in Indiana with the cooler weather we're having. Lows in the 50's and 60's and lots of rain of course. I love the waterproof bottom - I store all my gear inside and I can slip on my shoes/boots just by stepping into the sock. The zipper lets me regulate the temps inside easily - no stuffy feeling at all.
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    Very nice seams and over all good work.

    My rough sock gave me a great intro to hanging when I needed it. It makes one feel cozy and warm -- like a cocoon.

    But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. (Luke 5:16 NIV)

    He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one." (Luke 22:36 ESV)

    While people are saying, “There is peace and security,” then sudden destruction will come upon them as labor pains come upon a pregnant woman, and they will not escape. (1 Thessalonians 5:3 ESV)

    Thanks MDSH! It's starting to be a "home away from home" project. I need to update some of the pictures - later today.

    Updated pics and I'm happy with it "as is"! It weighs 10.2 oz with the top sewn and shock cord closure for the ends. It fits my 11ft hammocks fine, though it is a "perfect fit" for my 10 footers.

    I really feel the answer to my condensation problem was a frost bib - since I began using it, I've had no condensation - except on me, as the bib wicks the moisture back onto my jacket and shirt so I end up with a wet spot on my neck and chest. It's like wringing out a washcloth every morning. I don't mind at all.

    So an almost year long test for an average 15 degree increase of inside the sock temps and 20+ if I used a small tea candle in a baby food jar hanging from my ridgeline. In 50 and 60 degree nights I dont need a top quilt at all and have to keep the door partially unzipped to vent. This is using a torso length summer weight down underquilt.

    So or sew................the end!
