    Hang Jan 29 2011

    I got to camp this week end with a great group of youth men and camped in the coldest temp yet for me at -15 celcius.

    I had my hennessy hammock, supershelter, JRB winter nest, warbonnet superfly and my -17 bag.

    On the plus side I was warm and cozy all night. On the minus side I had a massive frost issue. I had a lot of frost inside and outside my tarp. On the mesh of my hammock was extremely frosty. At tear down my underquilt and supershelter were full of ice ( snow like ). I am not sure how to prevent this. I also got a cold nose, not sure how to remedy that either

    Did you put a space blanket over your HHSS OCF pad? Sounds like there was no vapor barrier and the moisture leaving your body condensed once it made it far enough through your insulation not to be warmed by your body anymore. my .02
