    Pocket insulation for the nx250

    I was playing around to day with the nx250
    And trying different things for insulation
    In the 6 pockets under the hammock
    I found that the 2.5 gal glad bags fit perfect
    I can get 2 in each pocket. It adds about 6" of
    Dead air space. Has Anyone else tried
    This will it work? The next cold night we get I am going to see
    How it works. Is their anything else you guys and gals
    Have tried for insulation under the Clark ?

    On my NX250 4 of the pockets are one size, the other 2 are smaller.

    You don't want to just maximize free air space.. Convection currents overcome the viscosity of the air. For double glazed windows, for example, 1/2" spacing outperformers 1".

    You can find the ziploc bag suggestion in archives here. Dunno that they will all remain sealed overnite. For cheap, I've played with inexpensive Walmart-sourced polyester fill pillows, cut in half and sewn back up.

    I had to put the bags in at different levels of air
    But they filled out the pockets well. It will be interesting to
    See if it helps at all.

    I like 2$-7$ down vests from the thrift store. They are a little bulky to pack, but work well with no mods. If modified, you could cut a lot of bulk and weight, but it hasn't been a problem for me and my short hikes. Non-issue if car camping. They fill the pockets very well.
