    O.K. Mac - Insultex Peapod

    As per your suggestion here's a quick rundown on the setup. After starting out by hand stitching a peapod with two layers of insultex using hangin'out's daughter's down UQ for an innerlayer; ran into problems with adjusting for compression (loss of loft) on UQ causing cold spots at shoulders @ 10f
    Took a break from the weather:

    Visited parents and got a crash course in sewing from mom. Came home and resurrected "1943" Singer sewing machine and when nuts making hammock gear. Redid suspension on peapod, added a zipper to edges. Made up some internal fasteners on inside of peapod. Made an innerUQ to suspend in peapod.
    http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/a...1&d=1267668185 rigged up an adjustment to raise sides and bottom of peapod from inside the hammock using drawcords thru sides of hammock to structural overhead ridgeline.http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/a...1&d=1267668680 Then made an OQ with a fitted footbox and drawstring weather collar to cinch top down around shoulder and to seal off heat loss around neck. I hope pic's are self explanatory as my previous written discription maybe have kind of sort of convoluted?http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/a...1&d=1267668680http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/a...1&d=1267670398http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/a...1&d=1267670790
