    Its weird, I have yet to ever have condensation issues in my hammock, with Quilts, or the SS or the Overcover. Maybe I just dont breath our enough moisture?

    Same here Gary, and I have wondered the same.

    The only exception is on the area of my TQ near my face at 10*, lot's of condensation then, in that small area near my mouth/nose.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Minus 35? Wow, you are one of the cold weather heros here! So were you using a Super Shelter in those temps? If so, how did you augment it?

    I've been thinking about a Tyvek overcover for my Hennessy and other hammocks. Now, if only I could get some cold temps to experiment with. Anything over 25 F, I'm fine with just a 0 degree bag, ccf pad and space blanket. Under 25 F, and you get that "frozen face" syndrome from the wind.
