    And that is what I think I have been dealing with during much of my backyard testing. Cannibal has expressed amazement at the amount of condensation I often experience on the underside of my tarp and even on my hammock and UQ. And he used to hammock in very humid ( though not cold) Florida. But as my hammock stand is a pain to move, I hang over a mud bog, sometimes with standing water. The only way it is not a mud pit is if we have had a week of sunny dry days, or if the ground is frozen solid ( very rare). I suspect this gives me some serious humidity rising up from the ground, in addition to whatever humidity is already in the famously humid MS air.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

As a result of this the face sits much lower in the bag and allows my breath to go into the bag unless I really watch it(kinda hard when your sleeping). If I turn my head sideways that almost guarantees that I'll be breathing into the bag versus out into the open air. It's why I keep trying to come up with some kind of crafty way to force the neck/head forwards without having to carry extra equipment on me.

    So, a pillow inside the bag hood? A fleece jacket in a sack or some such, to lift your head?
