    Fog and quilt saturation..

    Howdy all.. Lookin to cover all bases, have a uqp on the way thinkin it would be perfect for those mornings or days with thick fog to keep my quilt dry..
    Also thinkin my Black birds no seeum netting would work pretty well to do the same for my tq?
    What are your personal experiences on this? I am all ears...... Or eyes........
    We would be one step closer to world peace, if everyone slept in a hammock..

    In Sweden, where I do my camping, this is an issue on most mornings. If it has rained the night before, you barely see the ground because of the mist.

    I bought a 2qzq uq protector as a first step, and also I invested in a new uq from HammockGear with dwr - perhaps the dwr is enough on its own, but I wouldn't count on it.

    Haven't been able to test it yet in those conditions though, so can't report any experience except for the absolutely soaked uq I wound up with before....

    Dwr on the quilts does a surprisingly good job, HG being a good example. I've had blowing rain dripping from my UQ and was amazed how well it resisted absorbing into the down.

    For the fog you are talking about the DDP with the JRB Weather Shield mod is the way to go, whether protecting a UQ or a TQ...It is the most breathable approach.
