    ummm.... These reflective liners for the yetis - are they a reflective type fabric material, or more like an emergency blanket type?

    Ive heard so much about condensation with those things,,, I am just wandering how you would effectively work that kind of liner?

    They are more fabric (at least the ones I saw) than a space blanket. They don't have that crinkly feel, or sound, to them.

    well, thats cool.... but what about condensation? Since its fabric - would that eliminate the condensation element....?

    I'd love to be able to tell you, but I haven't had the opportunity to use one yet.

    well, water condenses because it's warm on one side, cold on the other. like a cold bottle of beer, water forms on the warm side.

    the yeti liner is between you and the yeti (between 2 warm spots) so condensation shouldn't be a problem.

    it is a vapor barrier though, however it's not against your skin so it won't act nearly as much like one as does laying directly on ccf, but if you used it when you might overheat it might cause some moisture build-up, however it's removeable, so you only would use it when when you are closer to the too-cold side of thing (closer to the limit of the uq), in a situation like that, the vapor barrier part should be helpful. i've used one several times and not had any moisture. time will tell how it effects the back sweaters, but i suspect when used properly (when there's no chance of overheating from too much insulation) they too should be fine. cold sleepers like myself could probably use one below 50 deg (with the 3 season anyway) to increase the temp of the hammock fabric by several deg, something that's nice for folks who like a toastier sleep environment.

    it's aluminized ripstop. once they are ready, i'll shoot an email to everyone who purchased a yeti from me. not sure yet of the exact price.

    In the past I used the ThermaDrape type reflective material as a layer between and was really warm but had moisture all through my hammock and bag. I am a sweater and maybe was dressed to warmly. But I don't need no moisture in the winter.......
    Was truly warm though!

    well, maybe it's something that's not for everyone, only time will tell.

    i might be able to get my hands on some breathable reflective fabric, haven't seen a sample though, so can't say how breathable it is. i think the current stuff will at least be be useful for cold sleepers though. (or at least non back-sweaters)
