Recently returned from a 3 day trip using my new peapod. It performed perfectly, keeping me warm, too warm infact. Coupled with my homemade bugnet, I had to vent the peapod to my waist.
When the temp dropped in the early hours, I just pulled the sides of the peapod together, sealing the velcro. I didn't feel the need for a top quilt at all.
The odd thing is I don't see much being written about the peapod. To me, having a huge lofty sleepingbag round the hammock seems like the easiest, simplest way to stay warm. Why has it not caught on?
People are continuing to search for new, slightly complex ways to stay warm, which I think is great. The more innovation, the better. But it seems to me that the simplest answer is already here.
Any thoughts on why the peapod isn't more popular?
