Superman wants to be Bo when he grows up
Man, what an awesome outing!
The best of times, for sure. He will always remember Dad taking time for these things.
We create a legacy whether we mean to, or not. You're ensuring that yours...
I usually have a thin, torso-sized pad to fold up as a sit pad or to supplement my UQ. It wouldn't be comfy on the ground but, on top of leaves I might sleep a little.
This thread makes me want...
Yeah, tyvek has good strength relative to weight.
But you better make this the last weight test of your garage door track!
Thinning the herd.....

Pinhoti Trail, Northern AL - Cheaha.
Not the highest, but it's nice and it's close.
Given that you're a warm sleeper, assuming you know how to hang the UQ properly and abide by Paul's advice for your lower parts, you should be absolutely fine.
You'll have a warm jacket to...
Store your hammock with the net on.
Any particular reason you're not doing this already?
I like the baffle design! Well, I like the whole thing!
You did a really nice job.
Not to mention that with Arrowhead you are dealing with a top-notch vendor who will take care of your and enhance your experience.
Thanks for taking your time to do the review.
This doesn't look like a winner by any means. However, I have had great luck with my BRS3000t stove, a flashlight, and a couple of other small items....
You're all a bunch of terrible people!!!! :)
Now that I have that out of the way....
Google Sin50 quilt. Nice design.
Me Me Me!
I'd like to see pics of your creation.
I didn't read all the responses but...
... Cowboy Swingin'?
Weight isn't the reason to get the Ti. It's higher heat resistance makes it withstand wood fires for cooking or a small campfire.
I have an Exped and a Montbell. Forgot all about the Exped til you reminded me!
Well after several attempts a pillow is still the only thing that works while both legs are straight.
So for me an inflatable pillow it is. Any super light ones out there that are durable and...
Yeah, if I switch to laying that way it's my left knee that hyper-extends.
I've brought this up to some smart folks who told me I was wrong - Sil doesn't absorb water!!!
I too, shake and even wipe w/a camp towel a bit but it's still a good bit heavier than dry weight. ...
For me the determining factor is gravity.
Gravity pulls down DOWN. Therefore, when tossing & turning, the down migrates off me and to the sides in my TQ - NOT fun. I believe quilts that use...
An overquilt (don't know if it's a real term but I've heard it used :) ) is just a quilt that is used over another quilt or bag. It increases your bag/quilt's temp rating and should be cut larger...
I don't try.
I just turn my shoes upside down and beat them together/on the ground before I put them on.
Besides, if you tickle spiders under the chin they won't bite.
I like that your intent was to "keep it real".
Cute pup too.
Liners are the Devil's spawn.
I think the added insulation claims are exaggerated. They become like a net that snags everything in the ocean and can't be stopped - tangling happens unless you are...
Specifically, a sock or a slightly larger 2.5 Climashield "overquilt". I want to supplement my current system for lower temps.
One is lighter and protects the UQ from wind; the other should...
Funny....'cause HF has cost me more money than my house and three daughters:lol::lol::lol:
While I've always hung a g/e hammock's foot end higher than the head, it sounds like trying it even higher is in order.
I am enjoying the responses and thank you all!!
I think it's a great deal, but there's NO WAY 3/8" Climashield is warm below 40, let alone freezing!
I agree that it doesn't look stable.
Kudos to the dude, though...I like the found spreader-pole option with no stakes!
I know this is an old topic, but I'm starting a new thread to see if there are new (to me) developments in the last few years (I have been using a bridge exclusively for several years this was always...
Only wash ANYTHING when needed.
If airing it out won't remove the funk, it's time to wash.
Glad you saw such great scenery.
That looks puffy - nice!
I spend more time on the ground than the trees and sleep fine. What inner are you using with that shelter?
Nice work. That's a lot of 850 down for a quilt that size - you're gonna love it!!!
You should be proud.
Encouraging words! Thank you folks.
There is another thread about these and folks are snapping them up.
Will be short, but would make a nice (but not super-light) quilt. Could add a panel at the foot end for a footbox from...
Like the title says, will it work on a bridge hammock?
I'll take # 6 & 7.
The finest down comes from ducks: Eider down. Cost is WAAAAAAY out of reach for this ole boy!
Fill power is fill power and both work equally well.
Goose down is somehow sexier, hence the...

Absolutely fantastic writeup! Loved the pics too.
Your planning was excellent. To have the right amount of food is a challenge for most of us.
