    has anybody ever heard of death by peapod?

    as me and the boys were preparing to hang outside tonight for some new equipment testing it put me in mind of a night a few months ago. no, nobody died...

    I had put my youngest in his diy hammock and put his peapod on ( just a sleeping bag with double zipper) his hammock is short enough that the peapod enclosed it. the morei thought about it the more worried I got about him suffocating during the night. so...is that a legitimate concern? I loosened everything and pulled it back so he had fresh air so I don't have direct experience to comment on.

    No, he won't suffocate. The fabric is most likely breathable and gets plenty of airflow. Quite a lot of people throw their bags over their heads at night and so far there has been no casualties.

    Without enough ventilation, the bag will get wet. I cannot speak to every bag, but my Speer Peapod will pass breath through it in both directions if held to my face.
