My plans on gear (hammock+tarp+TQ+UQ), please help to decide :-)
I'm new to hanging and I want to buy all-new gear: hammock, tarp, TQ and UQ. I have in mind 5 setups, here they are with some calculations. Have to mention that I will use no pad and will take this setup for overnight trips from basecamp. I will carry on my shoulder this gear and some other stuff (≈4 lbs).
I think I should explain how I plan to setup it. Here is a video and original post by BearChaser (Tarp, rigdeline and webbing straps are in snake skins, and hammock and quilts are in bishop bag. First setup tarp, and then attach hammock to knots on ridgeline.
What will you say? :-)
I'm 5'9"/132lbs, night temperatures are 40-60 (rarely up to 70). Clothes might get wet, so I don't rely on it as an insulation (but of course I will have dry socks :-)).
