    It works for snow, too NFA's rig is pictured here from last weekend, he pitched his tarp a little high as you can see in the pic and the sock kept the snow off of him (we got about 10" overnight).



    I was running a similar setup, also had my tiny HH tarp hung a little too high, but no worries



    The previous night had gotten to -1F or so, I was running an EMS Boreal 0-bag and a DD underquilt inside the Molly Mac sock. I was comfortable and warm all night.... I think without the sock I would have lived but perhaps not slept so well.

    I've always used DWR for my socks and have never had any ventilation concerns...DWR breathes well enough.

    Hey Jeff,

    Did you ever come up with some dimensions to make your newest sock version?

    Thanks,
