    I've never worked out a total fog solution, it's a pain for extended hammock camping
    Non breathable silnyl is the wrong way to go...You will trap moisture and add a light pressure of the protector on the UQ and that will contribute to an overcoming in spots of the UQ's DWR.

    Underground Quilts offers hydrophobic-treated down as an option for all of their quilts.

    Hope it helps!

    Underground

    That's a real factor for me that hydrophobic down is offered.

    Nikwax used to, and may still, offer a down proofing product, you wash it in, and it reduces the amount of water that the down will absorb.

    Ground sheet, UQ protector or sock of some sort, and a tarp overhead are critical where I live. Tarp with doors has helped immensely.

    I had pretty good results with a 2QZQ underquilt protector (silnylon) in very heavy fog on Cumberland Island, GA). It ended up being warmer than expected so I slept pretty hot and experienced a small amount of condensation buildup inside the setup. I thought the fog may have contributed to the moisture buildup too but experienced the same thing the following night with no fog.
