    Picture of overcover attached! Used it at Fall MAHHA. (Thanks for pic, Soundman!) Iíve used the overcover for about 10 nights now from temps as low as 34 degrees to 50 degrees, from dry to buckets of rain conditions. No condensation inside yet! The workmanship is excellent and Iím very happy with it. Seems I have a tendency lately to camp in colder temps than warmer and Iím keeping it on my hammock as part of my regular setup. (Of course, it will be nice to be able to completely remove it when I donít need it.) Itís made out 1.1. breathable ripstop and weighs 4 oz.

    Thanks Raiffnuke!
    I am glad that you like it . May it serve you well.

    Happy Camper does the black bird have to be staked out in order for the OC to be effective. I generally do not stake out my BB and was wondering if an OC would still work? Enjoy the new warmth from within the BB
    Thank you very much. This was a unique project and it turned out well.

    Yes, it does look pretty close to a BBO. I have an origianl BBO and use it in the deep cold. This was cloned for the most part, with a few modifications, and then given to HC. Thanks for the great idea and inspiration Paul.

    I bought a BBO off of Paul a few years ago too. I can say while similar, Raiffnuke's has a different cut and fit. Also, I didn't mean to step on any toes by giving Raiffnuke's DIY a shoutout. I'm now thinking it would have been better etiquette on my part to have called it a BBO-clone, to give credit where credit is due. My apologies, Paul and AHE. I had the mod change the thread title to help correct my unintentional oversight.
