Thanks for all the advice guys. I think I am officially abandoning the panda hammock. It is a flawed system right from inception. I have never had any condensation problem with my underquilts or weathershield and pad. I was counting on using the panda hammock as part of my partners setup, but due to the relentless condensation issues... its just not worth it. I will stop wasting any more time with it before my subarctic trip. I will now focus on trying to incorporate a VB layer into my JRB system.
I made a last minute decision to pick up a JRB Katahdin in place of the Panda hammock. I am hoping that a WM alpinlite full bag + JRB Nest (used as underquilt) both inside the JRB katahdin - enclosed like a pea-pod, will provide enough warmth, and remain breathable.
Trying to stay positive and keeping warm thoughts.
watching the crazy weather swings up there, daily now.
Cheers. and thanks.
