    Hammock Sock Questions

    ok guys and galls. im thinking ahead here and need some info.

    When i was at my hang in santee, i got COLD not having a TQ. I did have a poncho liner tho, and that made me happy as heck when i threw it over the ridgeline and got toasty warm REALLY quick.

    now, im thinking about making something to copy that theory. but a PL is heavy.

    so, can yall tell me what properties of the PL made it work so well to retain heat? i know it has insulation in it, but i didnt know if that was it. it didnt completely block the wind when it blew hard, but it did a dang good job.

    is there a single layer of material that would work similar to the PL to keep in heat and create that greenhouse affect?

    I can't tell you anything about your poncho liner that you don't already know, but food for thought: I'm going to take a few yards of 1.1 ripstop and use DIY Gear Supply's pattern for a zippered bug net to make a sock for cold weather hangs.

    I haven't field tested my WHUG extensively yet. Initial impressions are good. It's 0.9 momentum, and you could make it long enough to go down to your feet, or make a separate section for a foot box:
