Ever have trouble sleeping because you’re breathing cold air, even though your body is toasty warm in a sleeping bag? This hood utilizes climashield and mesh to create a super breathable tunnel around your face so that there is always a pocket that warms the air before you breathe it. The opening is adjustable so that you can adjust the rate of air exchange and even fold it back in if needed. The climashield/mesh is so breathable that you can even close it down and breathe right through it. Climashield is exceptional at dealing with moisture so that condensation from your breath will not cause the batting to lose loft. In the morning you just shake it out and it dries super fast. The body is built with 800fp DWRdown in a box baffle construction. Box baffle construction is considerably warmer than sewn through construction, which is easier/faster to build. It is available in different lofts for light weight and small packed size.
The Waterbear can be used as head insulation during the day as well, providing an opportunity to lighten your load by using one piece of gear for two purposes. For ultimate modular adjustment bring a light Waterbear and a hat. This way you can adjust for different temperatures on the fly. For instance, hood/hat on cold nights and just the hat when active on cool days. For further explanation on non-integrated hoods see http://www.timmermade.com/non-integrated-hood-sleep-systems.html
