    Holy old thread!! You've reached into the depths to bump this thread. It's been dormant for more than sixteen months..


    Check HC4U's gallery. He made a top cover for a HH that looks nice.

    The cover that is shown in HC's gallery is the closest thing I've seen to a sock for a HH. Without making the HH bugnet removeable, I think a typical sock would be hard to close up once in the HH.

    Did anyone ever come up with a good pattern for a sock for a Hennessy Asym?
    Because of the bottom entry on a HH, hammock socks can be a little hard to use . The side tie outs on a HH will also be an issue with a sock. As angrysparrow pointed out, a top cover would be a better choice for the HH. Here's the thread that has info on the top cover I came up with. HH also sells a top cover for their hammocks if you don't want to go the DIY route.

    I think the top cover will serve most of the use. I have been thinking about just doing some sort of a top cover when I get a tarp made that has closed ends. The socks biggest benifit to me is to heat up the air that I am breathing inside.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Are you doing a DIY closed tarp? Or going with Speer or JRB?

    I had quite bad condensation issues with my sock a few weeks ago with my peapod; although to fair I had it cinched right up and it was still strung across the ridge line it very cold also so one would expect a wide temperature variation between the inside of the sock and the outside=condensation!!

    Is condensation reduced when laying the sock directly over the top of the peapod?

    Should I have left the end open so my breathe escapes more?

    Or is it best to use the sock in windy/cold weather rather than still/cold weather?

    Like you are getting at, environmental conditions have a huge impact on how well a particular setup handles condensation. The dew point, temperature, and movement of the surrounding air vary and the ideal setup varies with that. You have to make adjustments as best you can to handle what is dished out at you.

    In cold weather I like to sleep with a bandanna or some fleece over my mouth. I think that helps prevent sore throat problems from breathing cold dry air and also cuts down on how much moisture you lose through breathing. That bandanna or fleece will get damp and a little nasty but I always thought that was worth it. Sometimes you might want an opening for fresh air near you face and sometimes you can do without it. Like you surmised, that depends on several factors-- temperature, wind, humidity, etc, all play a part in that decision.
