Why Do F-1 Pilots Wear a Hood under the Helmet?

Do not burn yourself in case of an accident. Like the overalls, this hood is made of a special fabric that does not catch fire and withstands a heat of up to 427 ° C. The correct name of this treco is balaclava, a reference to the old hoods made of small braided rings, used by the medieval knights. “The idea of ​​anti-shrapnel protection under the helmet came after the Austrian Niki Lauda crash at the German GP in 1976. He crashed his Ferrari, got stuck in the hardware and took off his helmet to breathe. But the car exploded and the fire took over the pilot. Lauda has big scars on his face to this day, “says journalist Livio Oricchio, a Formula 1 specialist. Balaclava left a good deal of his face uncovered until the next few years (the photo on the side, with Finnish rider Mika Hakkinen, brings this model old). Today, to increase protection, the balaclava have openings only for the eyes and mouth, where a tube attached to a bottle with water or isotonic enters. The first balaclavas were made of asbestos, a fiber also fire-resistant but less reliable. Currently, they are made with Nomex and Kevlar yarns, two super-resistant synthetic compounds. Another news is that the mechanics who make the pit stop also began to use the balaclava under the helmet to reduce the risk of someone catching fire in the refueling. (I.e.

Exped – Scout Hammock Combi Ul

I’ve been able to gather some experience with my Hennessy Hammock over the last few months . But other mothers also have beautiful daughters. So I wanted to take a look outside the box and got me the Exped Scout Hammock Combi UL concerned. This is a similar complete package, as with Hennessy.


The Scout Hammock Combi Ul

The system consists essentially of the hammock including Bugnet and a Tarp, as well as the necessary accessories for hanging the hammock. The Bugnet (mosquito net) is firmly sewn with the hammock and can not be completely removed. In contrast to my Hennessy model, the Scout Hammock has a zipper, which runs on one side of the hammock almost from the head to the foot end. This allows you to quickly and easily make yourself comfortable in the hammock. The mat is also easy to use as a seat.

The design of this hammock is largely symmetrical. This has both advantages and disadvantages. On the one hand it is with a symmetrical system no matter in which direction one wants to lie. On the other hand, however, you are not quite as flat and stable as with an asymmetric system (at least I am so). I myself prefer an asymmetrical hammock, but this is always due to their own sleeping habits. Here you have to try as a novice simply times both.

The Tarp

The included Tarp is actually a relatively unspectacular. There are some special features. The cords can all be stowed in small bags sewn to the tarp, so they do not spin around uselessly and can not knot themselves. This makes it extremely easy to set up in bad weather.

The Material

The material of Hammock is in itself much thinner and smoother than that of my Hennessy Hammock. However, it is also much more sensitive and sticks more strongly to sweaty skin. Until now, I am quite carefree with the hammock. However, with the thin fabric you should be careful to always leave enough distance to thorns or sharp edges. The double floor between which you can clamp the mattresses should, however, ensure adequate safety.

Sleep Comfort

Now we come to a more subjective point. The comfort of sleeping is, of course, difficult to measure and is very individual in every person. I have only the direct comparison to my Hennessy system, in which I personally feel better to sleep. This may look different in other people. Nevertheless it can be well for my conditions also in the Exped Scout Hammock well. It is important to ensure that you lie as far as possible into the hammock in order to obtain a stable and straight lying position. A lot of practice is not necessary.

If possible I would extend the Scout Hammock to an underquilt, since this is a lot more comfortabler than the solution with the inserted Isomatte. If you take a camping mat, you should also protect the arms from the cold, where the loft of the sleeping bag may be compressed.

Suspension System And Construction

The suspension of the Exped hammock is relatively simple. There is no need to know about knots or hammock-specific equipment. The included belt is wrapped around the tree and the end of the belt is looped through the loop of the webbing (you can also attach the slit cable later).Afterwards hang the hammock simply by carabiner one of the slots of the rope. The same procedure on the other hand and the hammock hangs. The mosquito net is also attached to these slotted cables by means of rubber and thus remains remote from the face. If you need more space, you will also find 3 channels, which can be used to add trekking sticks, but also flexible branches to give the hammock more interior space.

Now, if necessary, the tarp can be stretched over the hammock. The tarp can also be hung on the first in the supporting system of the hanging mats. The four further, necessary anchor points can either be fixed with herring in the ground or simply bind to trees or shrubs.

The Missing Ridgeline

What also stands in the eye in the eye, is the lack of a ridgeline. This helps to achieve the correct lying position.Because this is missing, you have to experiment again with each construction to reach the optimal sleep position.Fortunately, this deficiency can be remedied with a small piece of Dyneema cord. Simply knot the carabiner in the desired length and you have retrofitted the Ridgeline.

The Exped Scout Hammock Combi UL makes a solid impression and offers a complete Hammock set for the beginner. The whole system is well thought-out and also brings in the application a lot of fun through the uncomplicated set-up and the many extras. Nevertheless it is with hammocks probably as similar as with shoes.You have to try a few to find the right one. The Scout Hammock of Exped is it with me unfortunately not, because I lack the asymmetrical cut. Nevertheless, I can recommend the mat. Perhaps she’ll fit you!
