Very nice, Lost. I like that you can stand up inside it.
Finally got the ridge cap on. It's a 4 way stretch ripstop material DIY Gear Supply discounted to get rid of. A little heavy, but I'm way beyond heavy already.
I like this material for the stretchy qualities and you can see right thru it . A breeze barely slows down going thru it.
Tonight will be the real test to see what heat and/or condensation is trapped. Didn't have any condensation last night at 30*. Temps in the hammock stayed around 45* - even higher with my laptop going.
Picture of the cinch type side vents included (first picture). I also made some tabs so I can "roll" the sock walls up and down to snug it up or let it rest on the ground. The last 2 pics show the difference in up and down.
Total weight is truly appalling for the lightweight among us - 18oz! I don't mind the weight as it's proven (so far) to make winter more bearable. A 15 degree gain is nothing to sneeze at.
Last report will be tomorrow.
Yes, I know the navy blue clashes with the dark olive. I'm color blind, so it doesn't matter.
Final report - The temps for the last week have only been down to the low 30's. Combined with my big ol' down UQ it gets too warm inside with everything buttoned up. I have to vent the ends and top to control my comfort zone. No condensation so far.
This thing works as advertized and I can't wait to use it in really cold weather - 10 to 20 degrees. I also like the added space - doesn't make me feel crowded at all.
Pics of the fabric gathering thingie I made from mini d-rings, 1 cord lock and a bit of cord. It gathers up to 12 inches on each side and can be adjusted quickly from inside.
I love your work
In some mysterious way woods have never
seemed to me to be static things.
In physical terms, I move through them;
yet in metaphysical ones,
they seem to move through me. -

Hey, I'm color-blind too! Looks great to me!
