    I have read about the hammock socks, but have not seen pics or know much about them. So what is the sock for. Does it replace an UQ? Or is it extra insulation?

    Also.... do a search for the KISS overcover by Grizz. It's not a full-on hammock sock, but looks like a pretty easy DIY project to start with.

    Here is a cutting diagram and pattern for a BugSock using 54" wide material. It is essentialy the same pattern you'd use with a WinterSock.



    A 60" to 64" wide material would give you a little more "wiggle room".

    I just got a Molly Max IX-insulated sock for Christmas.

    I guess hammock socks are different things to different people.

    I wanted one because I had a vivid recollection of winter camping in a bivy tent. With outside temperatures of about -15F, the tent would be closer to zero inside. Contrast this with a similar trip in an 8'x10' tent, which would be pretty much as cold inside, as outside... at least with a single camper. I wanted that kind of micro-climate effect in my hammock setup.

    My buddy NFA also purchased a MMG sock, he doesn't own an UQ so he ordered it with multiple layers of IX. This will serve as his bottom insulation, although I suspect in deep winter he'll use a pad as well. I wanted mine to supplement an UQ so I went with a single layer of IX,

    I'll be posting more about the sock when I've had a chance to properly test it, unfortunately we have no weather forecasted lower than 20F at night in the immediate future.

    Thinking real hard about one of these to go with my Traveler. It will be used with a full length UQ. I know this isn't a "sock" but I will most likely go with a BBO for the WBBB.
    Mark is the name and If there is more than one way to understand what I just said....I meant the good one.

    After I posted, I went to Just Jeffs site, and found what I was looking for. I also was reading the other thread on here.

    I sold my BBO & WBBB together since they were both right zip/left footbox, but I can tell you that the BBO was a very fine piece of gear. Really nice fit on the BB. Seems like most folks who use them really love them.

    For those wanting a less expensive alternative, I just finished up an uncoated sock and added it to my site.

    CamoSock
    1.1 oz. Woodland Camo ripstop nylon
    uncoated, very breathable, probably not very windproof
    105" x 45"
    Weighs 6.10 oz.
    Stuff sack included

    I'm thinking of building a few socks out of 1.1 or 1.9oz. nylon/polyester.
    If there is sufficient interest, I'll add more of these on my site.
