    you will need a tq for sure or a sleeping bag rated for those temps or at least a couple of good wool blankets with a beanie, gloves, socks, longjohns and a hot water bottle for good measure
    edit: the jrb hudson river is rated 25f

    For the main hammock its become a tossup between the Warbonnet blackbird double layer 1.1 or the Hennessy Explorer Ultralite. Now Im not aiming for this to be an ultralite setup, rather a comfortable and easy to use well thought out setup that i can just relax in after a long day of hiking. I am quite set on the Hennessy hex tarp in polyester rather than silnylon as it is only 120 grams more but is much cheaper and wont stretch which is important to me, I wanted the hex shape as I would appreciate the ability to still move around in rain and cook underneath whilst being in a sheltered environment.

    The Hennessy is slightly more expensive however you get the tarp with it and they have a promotion at the moment where you get a free small hammock and two sets of snake skins. I like the side foot box of the warbonnet but I wont let it be a deal breaker or maker as i dont mind too much, does anyone with experience think it makes too much difference?

    Im also wondering about all the customisable's such as the suspension system the tarp ridge line and so on. I know whoopie slings are meant to be the bees knees but i still cant figure out how they work, im also looking at the triglide setup from Jacks are better, for suspension. Other things im looking at include a continuos ridge line and some dutch clips to just simplify the setup.

    My main concerns are comfort and just being able to walk into camp in rain pull out the tarp chuck that up then get the hammock up in snake skins whilst cooking up a brew while the tent noobs get all wet and confined to their tents.
    this here is what i use

    Im settled on the MacCat deluxe.
    one other thing i havent considered was a top quilt, i like the look of the ones on, specifically the 20 degree burrow. Id like something with a nice big footbox to keep my size 12's nice and snug, but more so to keep my whole body nice and secure in the quilt so I dont wake up cold.
    Any suggestions on the quilts is appreciated =)
    You will love anthing you get from Hammock Gear. They make some awesome Quilts. I would suggest the 20* Phoenix & the 20* Burrow. I have these and stay nice and toasty at those temps.
