    That's great. Welcome to the hanging crowd.

    On the undercover, I would not use sil-nlyon. It is not going to breath and cause a lot of condensation on the bottom. You are going to want something breathable.

    Are you going to make an undercover as in something to block the wind and trap in dead air or a down underquilt for insulation? Either way post pics for everyone along the way.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Dead air will get you by to 60...55 for some warm/hot sleepers.... below that you really do need some form of insulation.

    That's a good idea, but instead look into a pack cover gear hammock for the multi-use item. You may have different results, but on my first hammock sock I made it out of a nylon supplex to test out the design. It was said to be WPB, but it was definitly not breathable. When I pulled it over my head I got a lot of condensation on it and my bag. My final version is DWR ripstop on the bottom 2/3 and non-coated ripstop on the top 1/3. It still had condensation all around after spending a night in it. But not very much.

    Your body still breaths on the bottom. I had some condensation from underneath me on my first non-breathable version.
