Re: Hammocks.

Mine turned up today too. Bought the cheapo version and its exactly the same as a DD camping hammock just £12ish cheaper and no zip on the side between the two layers. Not super light at ~850g but not hideous either. A light, thin piece of open cell foam would insulate from underneath. If your not p...

Re: Hammocks.

If you set it up corner to opposite corner to get the longest ridge line I reckon it should be big enough.

Re: Hammocks.

Hammocking is generally heavier but the comfort benefits, for me, are worth the extra half kilo.

Re: Hammocks.

I used to use a mat when I got my first hammock which was fine but when I got my first underquilt I vowed never to use a pad again. It's just so much more comfy and theres no fear of the mat popping out from you in the middle of the night.

Re: Hammocks.

Sleeping bags work as a topquilt but as your compressing the bottom of the bag its becomes useless hence the underquilt to hang below the hammock and the topquilt for, er, the top.

Re: Hammocks.

A lot of hammock manufaturers give their products weight ratings.
Hennessey do one for the bigger boys and I'm sure Warbonnett do too.

Re: How concerned are you about weight?

Having light kit is the aim for me but I do try to justify the extra spendy stuff for the savings in weight. If, say, a sleeping bag was costing £180 and there was a better version saving 100g for an extra £20/30ish, thats fine but anything more than the £20/30ish and i start to struggle with the ju...
