Large Torso, Large or Med Hipbelt.
Possible quilt trades if interested as well.
Haha.....I larks head as well due to my fascination with energy conservation....:lol:
FWIW OP if you choose to larks head around, when you lay in the hammock the Amsteel will tighten up and won't...
Im so bummed about this.
Not being able to adjust the whoopie slings when the trees were to close was my pet peeve big time.
Just wanted to vent a little....:rolleyes:
This is exactly why I went with a WL Snipe as my first.
Simple hammock that could be turned inside out to try either way.
That said... I was convinced I would be head left.... but actually Im more...
I would like to make it if I can as well.
Looked like a great time!!
How do you like the evos Shug?
are you using the tails?
im thinking about those or the ascents.
I use a small sheet of plastic to set my pack on.
Ive also used a contractor's clean up bag when I knew it would rain to put ALL my stuff in it...but thats kinda a overkill
When I was using a...
beat me to it....
(this thread should be a sticky.)
Let us know and have fun.
Arrow Head Equipment is my suggestion.
there could be others as well.
Definitely some wows there for your collection. :)
"Forty-two,” said Deep Thought, with infinite majesty and calm.
more good responses thank you....
My Wilderness Logics summer 45 TQ is 75'' long and 45'' wide....
My Mid Atlantic Mountain Works TQ 30 is 78'' long and 55'' wide so I really felt they would...
im a noob as well haha....only been at this hammock thing a year now.
the 30 degree was my first quilt and I was looking to stretch my season out from lower temps in winter with clothing and an UQP,...
thanks for the responses everybody....pretty much what I figured.
it can be done but gotta try it out to be absolutely sure.
worst case scenario ill bring my army bags.... cause ill be pulk'n...
Recently got myself a 0 degree incubator and was wondering if anyone had some opinions on whether the aforementioned TQ combination would get me down to zero or not.
I may or may not be able to try...
I don't know why the way you rigged up your tarp doors to velcro shut or the tops to open for ventilation isnt seen at any of the cottage shops.
Seems like a smart idea.
President Tree....sounds like it might be part of the group your thinking of and apparently not quite the tallest believe it or not.....but probably still illegal.
I for one wouldn't mind if he...
off topic but Ive been saving this for when you posted again.
thought you'd think it was cool.
yup....here it is.
Its an interesting theory.
Ive seen zpacks quilts... and they are made with cuben.... and they don't trap condensation.
The general concensus about UQ's and UQP is what silversurfer said though for...
those are really great...:laugh:
welp... i went red....this post pushed me that way. :)
pretty dang excited...:woot:
Thanks for the help Dutch...you da man :)
The red or blue are very tempting I have to say...
Ive been googling incubator colors to find them all day to no avail..haha
Nuts on the...
Im in the same boat and im torturing myself.....only 10 hours left :scared:
Most of my colors are pretty drab so Im thinking about changing it up and the threads concerning color are pretty...
oh ok....good deal....thanks for the info.
haha ok....i was briefly perusing that thread earlier.
didn't realize that was the tarp.
nice job btw.
Im interested in seeing what the outcome is....
outandbacks stuff is really nice as...
Nice....looks super fly to me.
With your trekking pole... how are you attaching to the tarp?
I assume the same general way but is anything else different?
Yup....Hardcore hangers :)
what tarp is that and how are the poles attached?
Kinda where my mind was with what the "over the top mod" could handle.
Now im sort of wondering what the...
Interesting thanks....Looks good to me.
Have you used this mod with any sort of a snow load btw?
I see a lot of folks who are pretty hardcore winter hangers using internal vertical poles.
Are those poles from WL as well?
How are you attaching the tarp to the CRL HK?
Yes wear from the poles on the tarp without the CRL to suspend it is was I was referring to for sure...
Good to hear you haven't had a problem with your rig with all that use.
If I were to try a...
shock cord between the two trees just to keep the poles up off the tarp right?
I know the CRL isn't recommended for the superfly so it got me thinking....and up till now I...
Specifically with the superfly.
Is the CRL a necessity?
My first instinct without ever actually doing it say it might be due to abrasion concerns on the tarp.
Just curious if anyone has any...
woot yukons for loaners.....not horrible hammocks but a few weeks later dutch released argon and polyD for around the same price.
yeah so I'm gonna be that guy and ask what knife you have and what sheath....and what that doohickey is on your other strap.
Gotcha....I have quite a few extra sets of whoopies Ive been hoarding to use as replacements for a while that I guess I'm not going to be using for thier intended purpose now.
How are people repurposing whoopie slings to use with these suckers?
NICE write up !!!
Looks like you had a great time.
thanks for sharing it.
Welcome from another upstater :)
Last winter I used my 30 degree TQ and the cold weather portion (black bag) of a military sleep system with my 20 degree underquilt and made it down to 9 degrees....
thats what i used in the past and it worked really well.
now I dont even bother though.
they just have their own ziplock.
never tried a pad due to what i read and i know i move a lot when i sleep so i saved up for a while and got an UQ.
so far zero issues with my hammock gear phoenix.
Has anyone mentioned Kick ***...
I've been putting off ordering one to see what the next colors would be.
anything but black.
got to much black stuff.
maroon sounds cool.
+ a bazillion on the dutch argon...just got mine and it is sssaaaahhhwweeeet.
plus BIAS nano buginators are on sale this month as well.
I was out last week for a few days with a similar situation.
close trees...continual loops directly to toggles on one side.
worked well enough...but I got to thinking if it rained would the toggle...
Sweet trip man...looks like you've gotten some new gear as well !
Just ordered an argon from dutch last night after watching your video and listening to your review...had to.
