    Grand Trunk "pod" bag/insulation

    I noticed with interest that at the current winter Outdoor Recreation trade show that Grand Trunk announced a sleeping bag/hammock accessory that is configured to work like a pod. The photo I saw portrayed a 32 degree bag that was 88 inches long, with openings at the head and foot to allow for the hammock suspension to pass through.

    Grand Trunk isn't exactly a cottage industry but they are a good company with a good focus on their customers - as this product shows so clearly. I'll be very excited to learn more about it.

    So many trees, so little time...
    We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
    His friends and merry men are we;
    And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
    We burrow in the cypress tree.
    The turfy hammock is our bed,
    Our home is in the red deer's den,
    Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
    For we are wild and hunted men.

    Nice! I'd really like some info on pricing and a down version. The hood is really what does it for me. I'd been thinking about trying something similar but haven't found a down bag cheap enough and can't bring myself to cut up one I currently own.
