I never had the hammock in question in my hands, but if I'm not completely off: any underquilt made for a gathered end hammock should fit.
The question between a full length or shorter seems to be...
Sounds like the game already dug you in deep :-)
Wow, stunning photos!
Never tried a full length quilt. Mine is about 3/4 for me. I usually lay on it from head or shoulders, so it goes down to the knees or calves. In summer that's it. When colder some kind of pad or the...
1. I don't, but that's subjective. You'll have to try for yourself. Just climb in the hammock without the pad, then you'll get to know. An uq won't change so much about that feel, which is one reason...
Ups, funny what autocorrect makes you post....
Didn't know about issues with a park, don't they wanna have the publicity? Anyways, whatever it is I sure hope it can be solved!
Nice footage, here in Germany you don't see anything like that. I'm a bit jealous but at the same time am pretty sure I would have been scared shirtless...
I think though I already saw that video,...
Although AustriAlpin without doubt produces great, solid products (one or the other biner in my climbing rack is from them), I don't see any hammock related use. There's so much options in lighter...
My hat's off to you - what a piece of work. Enjoy it!
Welcome to the madness!
You gonna find all you you're searching for (and much more).
My understanding is that they fashion their quilt a bit longer than usual. This is so can cover your head if it gets colder than expected. I hear the owner is very nice, maybe shoot him a mail.
Maybe check out www.astucas.com for the curve at the head-end. Their quilts are cut so that it's longer in the middle (the exact opposite to your plan). Not saying one is better than the other, I...
Sounds like something good, but I don't know what 3rd to 1st ID means ;-)
P.s.: sorry for all the off-topic, gonna cut it now
Wow, thanks a lot. If that trip ever happens (I do hope so), I'll make sure to hook up with you!
Cool, your generosity is much appreciated!
I hope playing from outside the US is fair game? I if not please just ignore my post.
Coming from Germany, a very dense settled country, with little "wild" places between all the towns and...
You're right, the sock will shield you from bugs.
The jacket will only work on top of, since it'll compress if laid under you and this will nearly zero it's insulation qualities. Those pads will...
Just some quick pointers:
* hammocks: I'd consider double layer for both when going to south east Asia, so the biting insects won't bite you in the b***
* speaking of underneath: have you thought...
Just tried out - no problem at all via phone (read mobile version of web page) from Germany.
I just use my spare clothes in their stuffsack, or just the fleece, or just the puffy, or... Some shockcord to the head end so it doesn't get lost during the night comes in handy.
Thx for Link, got it already from Schakalaka :cool:
I'm resting my bones in the beautiful city of Hamburg. The first German hang took place without me, I'm still hoping for some pics to pop up ;-)
Moin, willkommen auf hammockforums!
Die Hängematte sieht gut aus.
Enjoy the madness [emoji6]
Sounds delicious, if I had the money I'd be all over that [emoji14]
Weight being one.
Nice one, my first was yellow also - great color for lounging in the park :-)
Sweet before/after-pics. Gonna watch the vid tonight, looking forward to it.
Moin und Willkommen.
Most of us here are crazy for pics of diy-projects (little hint ;-))
I do so with fleece, but not with ripstop material.
The Fronkey-net will seal against your uq, so no biting through there.
Looking forward to built threads with many many pics.
Good work in these, and nice weight.
What do you (or others with similar gear) think about usable temp range?
How did you do the footbox on the tq, is that a zipper?
Hi Kyle, are you still only shipping this within the US? Cause I know a German fellow who'd like himself one ;-)
I can only speak about Silnylon, as that 's all I have on my tarps. It does stretch quite a bit over night, especially if damp or wet. The lighter the fabric, the more it stretches. I consider 1.1 a...
It does depend on the shape of the tarp imho. I successfully used a 3x2.9m (roughly 10x10) with a 11 hammock in a thunderstorm with serious rain one time. Because of it being square (well, almost) I...
Wow! Thanks so much Alana and Dutch!
You can't go wrong to sing this song
we're so truly blessed, I must confess
to have a Dutch, thanks so much!
I'll stick to my wish from the last raffle:
Thanks for the nice suggestion, but traveling ain't the thing holding me back, that's family obligations. The mentioned nice pm came from her BTW [emoji6]
Have a great time and enjoy the hang!
I am on the small side here - I got two hammocks in my gear box. One simple diy I made way before I found this forum which is perfect for napping, but a little bit on the small side for a nights...
Voted multiple times in a row from one device through once connection today (phone w/ wlan). So it may be worth to just try, seems the "24h-rule" ain't always working (or is working in our favor...).
Just found this thread, thru a very nice pm. I can't come but wish y'all a great time!
I'd suggest a fronkey-style net. Easy to DIY, inexpensive and really good bug protection.
You can search the site for it, Fronkey did an excellent how to video and there are several build threads.
Hey Trevor, you just gained one vote. Watching you on survivor man would be so much fun dude!
Quite comfy it looks this one.
That's what I'd suggest too. Easy to do, works with almost any line, no hardware, foolproof. Once I dryed my laundry right at the ocean (like a few meters from the water) like this. Despite quite...
What you describes sounds like synthetics to me. Only thing not entirely within your requirements would be volume.
On the other hand there are multiple sorts of treated down on the marked, which...
This was fun, all the idea, the own tinkering - thank you Dutch!
UFDIGGA: Congrats and I,m looking forward to a built-threat and many pics :shades:
Thumbs up Dutch for doing this awesome raffle!
I would like to go a little lighter, while increasing comfort and ease of setup at the same time.
For this I'd like a 11" NylonD 1.0 hammock with...
Have you tried contacting wilderness logics directly? They should have the answers you're looking for [emoji6]
The weight of their old line of products put me off buying gear from them, looks like they did some minor improvement there.
But I did buy amsteel once and got it the next day (from UK to Germany)!
