    LOL!!!! That was my recommendation, that I still stand by. Of course a balaclava can be worn many ways and when I sleep in the "cool" season it is "under" my chin........drool all over appears to indicate you slept with it over your mouth......????

    Anyways, LOL! Each has their own comfort levels. I still swear by the balaclava.......and toasty during the day.....

    Actually bryan you might not be far off. It might not work for a rainy trip where dry wood might be a problem but There's a couple of things folks could consider.
    1-use a golite shangra-la 3 tent , small collapsible stove and titanium roll up stove pipe from Titanium Goat plus stove pipe patch.
    2-for those that sleep in a hammock or tarp/tent in a SHELTERED place incorporate the super shelter idea popularized by Mors Kochanski.

    For tarp users,space blanket on back wall and under you and a long fire out front.

    Something to think about anyway.
