    Who has tried the polar peapod????

    It was on Shugs last youtube video and if the reviews are good I may need one.
    Tell me what you think of yours.
    Thanks

    +1 to Shugs last video. That's all I've seen on them, it pretty much answered all my questions.

    That would be my " Polar Pod " in Shug's video. Used it last year as a stock pod and with supplement insullation took it down to a -19F. It's nominally rated to 10 degrees. I've overstuffed mine 22 oz. of 850 down fill. I've also added a suspension system to it and in the process of creating a venting tube.

    So stock, before adding 22 oz of down, you took it to minus 19F, correct? What was the supplemental insulation you used to do that, or was that after adding the 22 oz? What hammock was it around?

    Before you added the down, did you ever see how far you could push it all by itself, or maybe with just puffy clothing supplementation? Just curious, like the OP, about the experiences of the few that have them. Of course I have plenty of Pea Pod experience, but I've always wondered about the big boy.

    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Hammock used was the Exped Scout Combi flipped upside down. Supplemental insulation included clothing system (merino wool base layer,Swedish military wool pants,wool sweater, Go-lite Inferno Parka, German military synthetic insulated pants. 20 deg. TQ. Molly Mac Canvas Sock. This was stock pod and took it down to -19F.

    On the SHT w/TZ backpacking used same hammock, clothing system(base layer,merino wool snowboarding shorts,swedish wool leggings, german synthetic ins. pants, 20 deg. TQ,GL Inferno parks, canvas sock, no tarp. Stock pod and went down to a -7F.

    Hope that helps.
