    I sleep cold and I am used to tent camping. The hammock that works best for me is a double layer RR with the Spindrift two door. I leave the Spindrift on year round. In warm weather, I can leave...

    I use a 25" wide thermarest in my RR and inflate it well more than half way. Flat lay and no shoulder squeeze. If it's cold outside, I add a Lynx underquilt. Works fine for me.

    I think a 30" zipper at the head end only would be fine for an inflatable pad. Only reason for a zipper at the foot end too is in case you might want to use a CCF pad and it would be easier to...

    The Spindrift is sort of difficult to put on and take off, so, once I have it on, I like to keep it on if possible. I typically use a pad and that is another challenge with the Spindrift on the...

    Brandon seems to suggest that if you use the Spindrift on the RR you can get away with a smaller tarp, if you wish.
