    My youngest has been hanging since she was 3. My oldest (10) is set up for backpacking now with his own quilt set. The other two will be getting upgraded gear over the next couple of years.

    Be careful with a silnylon undercover. It won't allow moisture to escape, so you could end up lying in a puddle by morning.

    I'm a cold sleeper as well, and hate sleeping in clothes. I have a deep winter quilt set that should be able to take me down to the -50C range. I've used...

    With seven people in our clan of hangers, and four years of hanging, no one has yet fallen. Of more concern is what is above you. Make sure to check for widow-makers when setting up.
    Good to see...

    On my Hennessy I removed the stock suspension and added whoopies. On my wifes and sons I tied a knot in the suspension right above the hammock, and attached whoopies to that. Both work quite well.

    Top quilts are just worn on top of your body. My guess from the picture is that the blanket is either drying off, or was hung there to provide some protection from dew instead of using a tarp.

    I think the Explorer is made in China. We have two of them. Been using them for almost 4 years now. There is very little noticeable wear on them, and they get used a lot, 30 to 60+ times a year.

    The hike in isn't nearly as long as it looks. About a 15 minute hike. Still not the best time at midnight though, especially if you miss the campsite like a couple did last year.

    I love the bottom entry, lots of people don't. We have enough biting insects that it can be hard to see at times, so the bottom is great for getting in and leaving them out.
