    Re: Gore-Tex Super Winter Sock

    This rekindles my want for a WP/B hammock sock. I'll have to dig up my Driducks ponchos and see what I can come up with.

    That goretex isn't priced half bad. I'll pick some of that up for other projects.

Just a couple of questions.
    Well, I'll find out when it gets colder, but I played around with a gore-tex bivey in my hammock (with me in it all zipped up) at the beginning of the year (with another ripstop sock around everything) and had zero condensation in the bivy as low as 20*. I really believe the newer generation of Gore-Tex breathes or lets water vapor pass much easier than the older stuff as long as it stays clean.

    I know from other hangers that the driducks works wonderfully. The only downside is the material is more fragile although very lite weight.

    If my mad scientist experiment works out, I'll be making another in a different color - more stealthy.
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    I find the older I get, the more I want to know about things. Knowledge may be power, but for me it's very entertaining. You should see my big pile of notes - on a hard drive!

    This was one thing that I was thinking of.
    I have a few gore text bvies lieing around and
    have wanted to do something with them.


    This would be ultimate if you could make it a dual use
    item, if it could be used as a tarp or something else also.
    Actual, thinking of it... You could add pole supports
    and make it quite a pop tent.

    Looks great. Has me mind churning.
    How hard was it to sew?

    It's fairly heavy stuff - 5oz per yard, but very easy to sew. I used a 90/14 needle and 8 stitches per inch. It would probably make a great teepee.

    Lost_Biker, how'd you do the shape of this? Is it simply two matching half moons or is it more sculpted to fit the shape of the occupied hammock?

    HA! I was waiting for someone to ask. It's the exact same method I use to make tarps. I use a 10' long piece of 1/2" pvc and a string to make a bow. The 2 pieces of material are together - put the bow on the material and use a marker (turn the material inside out first so the marks won't show if you make a mistake). With both pieces together - 1 mark and cut both pieces at the same time. The outline matches a hammock very closely. Just measure the diameter of your hammock (loosely) with you in it and an uq hooked up with a piece of string right around the center of your hammock and over the ridge line. Give it a few extra inches and your done.

    Here - this will show you. https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/...ht=winter+sock

    That's a nice looking sock. I like the choice of materials too. I am looking forward to hearing how this thing works in the cooler weather.

    Gore-Tex Super Winter Sock

    WOW, that is one awesome pod. I've had several Gore-Tex jackets in my day and loved them. Would really like to know how this works out. I'll be keeping tabs on your developments.
