PLEASE, ENTER ME, US IN THE GIVE AWAY. Thanks!
Hi neighbor. I'm in Davis. My hammock system is pretty light, but more important is the comfort. I don't like bending and crawling into a tent anymore. I like swinging myself to sleep. Check out...
Thanks for everyone's comments. Just saw the doctor and he thinks I must have pulled something during the trip. Hopefully the pain will go away, and next time I will try putting some clothes under my...
it is strange. I switched to the hammock because of old age...ha! I have a ridgeline and it is loose when I set it up. Once I get in it is tight. Is this correct or should I set up with the ridgeline...
It's a diy ghost hammock (Sgt Rock design) 1.1 ripstop. I'm 210 and definitely has stretch. I have used it the last 2 year and felt fine. The lower back ache started this season.
Hi All. I'm getting lower back pains from sleeping in my hammock. My setup seems right...30 degrees, diagonal lay. Any ideas?
I have a tarp with doors and hugging the ground. Would this give me more warmth than a Hennessey asym tarp?
Would a tarp with doors give me any warmth at all?
Trintiy sounds good.
Great idea. I'm in for snow camping too..but there's no snow.
The material seems light. Does it block the wind and still increase the temps inside 10-15 degrees?
What's your preference? Do you have 2 tarps...one for cold/rainy weather (tarp with doors) and one for good weather (lightweight, no doors)? If you had to keep one, which one? I've used a hammock...
A hammock sock will give you at least another 10-15 degrees.
Two weeks ago I made the decision to not use a tarp or a bug net and use my 1.1 sock. The lows was supposed to be around 50-55F. I had a Jarbridge UQ and a fleece topquilt and the sock. The temps ran...
I will be using an UQ and I totally forgot, I have a light hammock sock (1.0 material). I think I will be ok. What do you guys think?
The low temps will be about 50F. Anyone have experience with a fleece TQ. Would it work for this temp. What's the lowest temp you have used a fleece TQ.
Going to make a bug net. What is a good source for shock cord. Also, what cord thickness is good for a bug net. Thanks.
Not sure if I had purple on the list, but blue is good if I did.
I'll take 2 pairs. Thanks.
PM sent, Thanks for your consideration.
That's amazing...18.5 lbs total.
The low temps will be in the 40s. The mosquitoes are coming out. I'm thinking to leave my bug net home and just keeping my lightweight sock (1.0 ACU very light and breathable). Any thoughts? Also,...
I'm in for 20...if it's not too late.
I have a light weight (magna 1.0 camo) hammock sock. Now that it's getting warmer but still cool at night, I'm thinking to not bring a bug net and not bring a tarp and just use the sock. What do...
Double layer, double the weight.
I'm about 210 and holds me fine. 1.1 single layer. 3rd season. I always check my setup before I take it out. So far it looks good.
Interesting. Anyone know if there is a list with the fabric and their max weight capacity. Like for ripstop....1.0, 1.1, 1.7, 2, etc.
is it over? a day late...again.
I am looking at the comfort rating of different weights of fabrics. This website
http://www.dream-hammock.com/ComfortRating.html shows weight capacity of each fabric. The yellow represents "Loss of...
So..I should not use the relectix and UQ?
I have read that you get condensation sleeping on reflectix. Some say yes, and some say no. What is it? I use an UQ and I plan to have the reflectix on top of the hammock and I will sleep on top of...
That's what I thought. Time to make some gear.
If I have jarbridge UQ and winter tarp with doors, would a sock be overkill? The temps can range from 0-40F.
I have some 1.1 and I was thinking to make a hammock sock. At what temps would a sock made of 1.1 be useful?
I made a ghost hammock last year and have used it about 8 weekends. It's made out of Magna ACU 1.1 30D which is really 1.0
I weigh about 210#. It stretches a bit but works fine for me. I'm just...
Henry Coe State Park in Morgan Hill. You'll have to study the terrain before heading out to make sure there a trees where you want to settle for the night. About an hour south of San Jose. You cannot...
Welcome and have a good time.
Pics of Middle Loch Leven Lakes in Tahoe National Forest.
I've gone to the Loch Leven Lakes in Tahoe National Forest. Stayed twice at the Middle Lake and once at the High Lake. I liked it a lot. There's also Woods Lake in Eldorado National Forest. I...
Do you put the reflectix between the hammock and UQ or is it on top of the hammock?
The weather is going to be around 25F-35F. Right now, I have a DIY hammock. Jarbridge w/emergency blanket and a 20 degree bag that I use as TQ. Tarp with doors. Cap, pants, shirt and a set of...
I have a Jarbridge UQ. The temps might drop into the 20s. Would a car shade in addition with the Jarbridge help to increase warmth? Is so, should I put it in between the UQ and hammock or on top of...
Always wanted to head out there. What length of straps do you recommend for those trees?
Count me in...Thanks.
I made the fronkey bug net out of tulle. Cost less than $5. Very light but very fragile. After a few uses I somehow poked a hole in it...how I don't know. Maybe I snagged it on something. Anyway, I...
I have a ridgeline and I guess...either way....it's close enough.
I have been reading that the suggested suspension angle should be 30 degrees. Is that 30 degrees measured with hammock occupied or unoccupied?
I'm a diabetic too. I used a Jarbridge and a full length thermarest at 7F and was fine. I also put a cheap emergency blanket between me and the UQ and threw a blanket on top of the ridgeline to give...
At what temps are you using this setup?
Welcome from Davis. You will want some kind of bottom insulation. Could be an air mattress or a cheap WM blue pad. Practice before you go out.
