    VIDEO: DIY Peapod and Anorak test

    Hey guys!

    This could've been posted in either the top or bottom insulation sections, but I decided here since both of these items are DIY. I basically just converted a Canadian army down sleeping bag (the inner bag of the system), into a peapod for cold weather hammocking.

    This test was only with the peapod, as it was very warm outside. The second thing I tested was a DIY Anorak made out of a French military 95% wool blanket. I was able to score the sleeping bag for 50$ and the blanket for 25$ at my local Surplus store, so very pleased about that

    Hope you enjoy this short(ish) Video!

    Feel free to ask any questions





    The anorak was made using this template, found on bladeforums and Pintrest:
