    traveler sock?

    Are there any pics of the warbonnet traveler sock in use on the forums?
    May look into one for winter.

    probably not yet, just started making them this summer and they're more of a cold weather item so they're just now starting to sell

    I just ordered the sock and hopefully will be able to try it on my bb in the next couple of weeks. I'll try and get pics up then. We are already starting to get temps in the -1 or -2 c (30F) and the threat of snow is hanging over our heads already!!

    yes, it's the exact same design/shape as the travel net except fabric instead of netting

    I have been trying to determine if i should buy the sock or invest more money on Winter UQ and TQ. Currently my set up can hold up to 20 degrees maybe less. I would love a solid detail video review on the travel sock.

    I would like more details also. Does it have pull-outs? I like the space of my BB, and the pullouts on the hammock seem to make the space.

    By all reports, the sock should get you another 10-15 degrees.

    Fish- I don't know about the WB sock, but I've not seen a sock so far with pull outs. If you really like the pull outs on your bb (I do too) you should also consider making a top cover. It's a pretty easy project and I noticed an almost immediate rise I'm temp when I put mine on recently.

    It's not the best angle, but here's a shot of the traveler sock side-by-side with the spindrift on the ridgerunner



    I definitely found it made a huge difference in warmth, and I used it at right around 10F during the Colorado Fall Hang two weekends ago. I did have some frost from condensation inside the sock, but it was well worth it for the fact that it kept my face and lungs warm at 20 degrees below freezing.

    should note that MM was using a prototype version made with less breathable fabric.

    current fabric is what you see on the spindrift except in olive brown
