Regarding condensation: You should be aware of conditions that could cause condensation if you use MMG PPEF UQs outside other insulation. If you are unsure, then put the PPEF against the hammock.
What is PPEF? Perforated PolyEthylene Foam is what MacEntyre uses instead of Insultex. The outer layers of Insultex are polypropylene scrim. The middle layer of Insultex is PEF: 1/32″ polyethylene foam. MacEntyre uses just the PEF, and he perforates it so that when you stuff it, the air has somewhere to go. He faces PPEF with lightweight nylon on both sides to protect it.
