    When you say you store your unused clothes in the bottom, are you talkin' 'bout down at you're feet or under your hammock. If it's down at your feet, don't they work their way to your waste, or does your hammock really lay that flat?

    I usually place some of my extra clothes underneath the hammock in the pea pod. My hammock is pretty flat since it is a Claytor no net.I usually put my down jacket underneath me.

    you can get alot of storage goodness also if you have an underquilt just by using a hammock sock then you dont worry about loft compression and things tend to stay a little warmer that way and they will dry too

    Yep, when you set up and adjust the Pea Pod, just leave an extra few inches between the Pea Pod and hammock. Put a down or Polarguard jacket or vest or light quilt or whatever you have between the Pea Pod and hammock. You may well now find yourself with 4 or 5 or 6" of bottom loft. Instead of the normal rated 2.5".
    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.

    Second night in my Peapod. I got the knack with opening and closing the pod.
    Temp dropped to 27* and so comfortable. I dreamt it was summertime and somebody invented a wonderful new type of A/C that allows you to breath icy cold fresh air. It was delightful!

    Joggerjohn - you got to 4F using ONLY the PeaPod? That's pretty impressive.

    One thing I like about the PeaPod is that I can put my boots in a stuffsack, clip it to the hammock support on the foot end, and hang the boots inside the PeaPod. The stuffsack cord runs thru the end of the PeaPod and the boots rest inside the hammock, up and out of the way above my feet. This keeps them from freezing and they're easy to get to in the morning.

    I really like how the PeaPod seals against almost all drafts, too. Joker's setup two nights ago was the DownHammock and PeaPod at -2F...plus GoLite Ultra and Hammock Sock. He started sweating during the night and kicked off his quilt and took of his down jacket. Definitely a fan of the PeaPod. (And the MWUQ4, and the Yeti, and... )

    That is what I want. Warm clothes and boots that don't get tangled up in my legs. THANKS for the idea!
