    SnugPod

    I rigged a PeaPod over a Snugfit on a Speer IIIA hammock. It's a near perfect fit!

    All I had to do was make a dozen 3" velcro sex changers, for one side of the PeaPod. It's all velcro'd together on the edges of the hammock.

    I plan to use it with two Speer Top Blankets (shown in the pics) in MN next week. One night I'll test an All Insultex Rig, and the other night I will use this SnugPod with a SEEPless IX Hammock Sock.

    You be careful with those things!! Looks like a great fit indeed.

    She will be at Mt Rogers... she is getting tall, and is hard as a rock... (Never get in the way of a dancer's kick!) ...she tends to be a warm sleeper.

    I'm counting on it! If my Insultex Only Rig fails in the frigid MN woods, I'll have a SnugPod as a backup!

    Looks TOASTY!

    Dumb question: What's a Sungfit? Is it a full end-to-end under quilt attaching via the Speer velcro edge?
