Condensation build-up

How did you handle condensation build-up during your expedition? Even in the BC interior, when it gets down to 2 or 3 degrees, I'm building up quite a bit with the windows zipped up.

Condensation not a problem for us

Hello Matt. The Treeline Outdoors tents all have quite a few venting ports built into them to combat this problem, and they also cover the frame tubes with canvas to help guard against condensation. In our situation, the warmest temps we slept in the tents was -16C, which at that point, your breath turns to ice crystals and sticks to your balaclava, sleeping bag and the roof of the tent. As temperatures never warmed, it was just a case of sweeping away the crystals when we woke and broke camp, no biggie.
