    I generally do both, without problem. I would recommend either using a top quilt or opening up your sleeping bag and using like a quilt. That makes it much easier to toss and turn, so to speak.

    I'm asking the Mrs. for a DH Thunderbird for Christmas. Randy gives a huge range of width. Will going wider effect the performance of my JRB Greylock 3?

    Trail Medic, have you tried this in cold weather? I can see the underside being nice and warm, but there seems to be a ton of air space above you that your body would need to heat.

    That's a bit of an exaggeration. There are a lot of variables (i.e., type of rope; knot you've tied). But when it comes to any knot used for climbing, the only knot that gets that low is a bowline....

    That's a nice looking hammock. Ignorant question here, but I'm assuming you need a tarp in addition to weather shield in steady rain?

    I was considering a similar setup until someone pointed out to me that if you're "wearing" your tarp, how do you hang your hammock in the rain? Same goes for accessing your pack to get at food, etc.
