    A winter hammock question

    I spent the weekend hanging in 25* weather and all in all quite warm. I was useing my DIY hammock with winter burrow top quilt and 20* F incubator underquilt. My only complaint, (very minor) is when I rolled over the the ripstop of the hammock was not warm yet an was a bit cool to the touch.

    My thought was to have a dedicated winter hammock and sew a ultra lite fleece to the inside hammock itself. Iwas thinking of those light micro fleece throw blankets. I know if you just thow a blanket in the hammock it bunches up. but if you sew it with chanels ever 6 to 8 inches and dart the ends this just might be a good idea.

    Like I said it would be a dedicated winter hammock. Just like flannel sheets. has any one done this? Or would their be an issue with condensation?

    I just wear fleece to sleep in. That may, or may not, be the solution you seek.

    Get yourself one of those Hoodie Footies. Preferably the one with the bunny ears.

    +1 What a great idea!

    I would think that the fleece might rip off the seam due to its stretch. With a double-layer hammock, you could slide a blanket between the layers to avoid bunching and stretch-related issues.

    But, man! A tiger fleece hooded onesie is not hard on the eyes at all!

    Okay, we are getting extremely silly here! Don't provoke the silly police.

    It's not procrastinating, its proactively delaying the implementation of the energy-intensive phase of the project until the enthusiasm factor is at its maximum effectiveness.
