    Any issues with condensation or was the side open enough to disperse it.

    Yeah, that pad is rated pretty high so it was more than enough. It got down to between 15 and 20 degrees I'd say.

    No condensation problems but I sleep with my face out of the bag and I air the bag out every morning near the fire just in case. I can't say what kind of condensation problems you might have over long camp outs though, I've never used this set up for that.


    Thanks, guys.

    Very nice that is an ingenious solution to a very dangerous problem. One of my biggest fears is catching my sleeping bag on fire from popping wood.

    Wow just had a thought (might be a stupid one), but one of the problems with a clear piece of plastic for a super shelter is popping embers, I wonder if there is a clear tarp material that could be fire retardant coated the same way.
    Great Idea Iz! Yet another multi-use for the BCUSA tarp.
    There are no "failures", Just learning experiences.

    Good stuff, Did you have enough wood for the long fire? Multi-use gear rocks.
    Eventually, all things merge into one, and a river runs through it. The river was cut by the world's great flood and runs over rocks from the basement of time. On some of the rocks are timeless raindrops. Under the rocks are the words, and some of the words are theirs.
    I am haunted by waters.

    I suspect if it was real cold, an emergency blanket with the reflective side towards the inside in place of the MEST, would be a bonus. The couple that I have are 5' x 7' and heavy enough to take the abuse. Good video IZ, thanks.

    Somebody had plenty of wood they didn't use....I ran out.
