    Will do as soon as it is possible.

    Third night in the sock. Still no condensation. Temperature around 1*C. Little hole in door for ventilation.

    Fifth night.

    Fifth night in Warbonnett Traveler Sock. -5*C. Moderate wind. Low air humidity. No condensation inside sock which I use with a small opening in zippers.
    Simply love that sock. Huge improvement in my setup.

    Best,
    Blaze

    Spent the night in the woods last night. Took a indoor/outdoor thermometer with remote sensor. Normally I would only take this thermometer while car camping due to weight but figured it was too good of a chance to check out the temps inside my set up with the sock vrs the outside temps.

    First problem I had was that it was very windy and dark which made deploying the sock a bit of a pain but I got it set up.

    Set the remote sensor in side the trail shelter I hang close to and kept the main thermometer with me. Every time I woke up I would check the thermometer readings and it consistently showed that the temps inside the sock were 5+ degrees warmer than outside (plus the sock did a great job of blocking the wind.

    Now the outside temps only got down to 50 but I figure that was still a pretty good test.

    See Shugs video on how to use the zippers on the Traveler bug net. The same method will work for the sock. Btw, I don't use my bug net with the sock.

    I am now a bit more experienced in the use of the sock and I am still a huge proponent of its use. It is amazing how much it adds to ones comfort on a windy and cold night.

    Depending on which season it is, I either use the bug net or the sock. Both are great pieces of gear.

    Used my WB sock this weekend. Easily added 10-15 degrees. Temps down to 14 one night and 22 the other. Second night I was venting often.
    Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the strength to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    I recently bought one and really like it. I didn't have a thermometer setup inside but would say it was 10-15 deg F warmer inside the sock. It did add a little time to the hammock setup so I have changed the way I pack it up now. I just zip the sock shut with the hammock, TQ and UQ inside and pack it into my trash bag lined backpack. Works like a charm and the setup and tear down times are great.

    Has anyone come up with a method to use the pull outs on the blackbird while in the sock?
