    MMG Canvas Hammock Sock - reviews?

    Anyone tried this thing? I'm extremely curious about it.

    I have used Mac's, and made my own from cotton cloth.

    These work best in deep cold, below 20f even better at -20f.

    Frost usually forms on the outside of the sock, rather than the inside like it does on a nylon sock.

    Thank you so much. I thoroughly enjoyed watching ya'll at the Frozen Butt Hang. I'm thinking I may not truly need to consider a sock until I can talk more people into winter camping. My normal buddies all wimped out on me this winter so I spent most of the time solo.

    Canvas has truly superior vapor permeability and wind resistance in deep cold. It works better than any other material as an outer cover in those conditions.

    However, if there is any chance of water in liquid form, it's too warm for canvas!
