Not sure I can justify the cost of RBH for my type of hiking. If I went with RBH with what I have now, the low end would run me @ $460, compared to @ $80 for what I have now.
However, with that said, that VaprThrm® NTS Shirt for $225 looks sweet, and is on my list of, "What I Want".
i'm confussed what are the problems that people are having that they want to solve with a vapor barriers?? i have hung from 90 to -10 degrees and don't know why i need a vapor barrier or a weather shield or a hammock cover. i use JRB quilts, cuben tarp, 1.7 hammock and sleep in a t-shirt, socks and briefs no matter what the temp. TY KK
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.
I'm a big sweater. Day or night. After a long day of hiking, eating dinner and jumping into the hammock, I usually crash out fast. Without a VB, I'll wake up wet, and my bag, UQ will be wet as well depending on the temps. If I would have woken up at some point before I began to sweat like a pig, I could have done some venting.
A VB catches the majority of the vapor, and I wake up with dry clothes, UQ & TQ.
It's not for everyone for a variety of reasons.
