First night ever in the cold I stayed warm in a hammock.

Post by Mark Jones on December 1st 2015, 9:35 pm

A few weeks back I borrowed a down underquilt for my Hennesey Hammock. My son rigged it up for me and dialed it in for me as I laid down in it. I slept very nice no cold spots and well it was a awesome nights rest. Cold was 37 degrees.

I will take it on the 25 miler. 2 nights. It's colder now. It should take me down to 20 degree's.

It's fun. Always trying something new while backpacking. I bought the underquilt used for 100.00 bucks.

What's the weight differential of the hammock and under quilt vs your normal setup? Interested to hear how it goes.

I have always wanted to try camping with a hammock and tarp. In the summer it would be great around here but not too good for the winter we get so much rain and wind. It would be way better then carrying a full tent.

well minus the pad weight and only 2 stakes it saves a pound. Not a big savings. bulk wise it saves room.
some guys camp in -20 in these things.

I've hammocked in the teens. use a pair of gator clips to clip 1 side of a wool blanket, then wrapped it under then over. Cocooned myself and slept fine.
