We LOVE our 5m zig soul pad, but wonder if anyone else finds them a bit bright on a sunny morning? I have been thinking about a liner, not the inner room type thing, but a lightweight voile fabric triangles sewn together that goes up over the pole and Is tied (with pretty ribbon obviously ) to the pole during the day then pulled out and attached to the roll up toggles at night.
Has anyone made anything similar? It makes sense in my head, we have the tea light chandelier which could be lowered to the floor during the day until the lining is hung at night.
Would lightweight voile be enough in terms of light-dampening properties?
I know what you mean re. the sunshine in the early morning but I wear an eyemask (a v. poncy one to go with my poncy tent) to sleep in and consequently aren't woken up too early. If you meant too light generally once you're up and about, that's what I love about the bell, so I'm afraid I don't have any suggestions!
Actually, thinking about it, I go to bed in a tent in an eyemask, earplugs, a woolly hat, bedsocks and jimjams, clutching a hot water bottle... no wonder I read all these tent nookie threads and think 'why aren't I getting any?'
