Good point. I updated the post to exclude the canister. Yes, this is the model with the color changing thing on the side. I actually haven't tested the color change in a while. I can do a boil...

Awesome looking tarp. Great job.
Oops. I just realized this was the Dream hammock specific forum. My bad.
This page from Warbonnet covers their thoughts on weight ratings, layers and comfort:
Regarding feeling the layers...
If you want to do winter hammocking I'd get the 4 season UQ. A 4 season UQ will work for both 3 and 4 season stuff. Regarding your top insulation, if you were farther south you might be able to use...
I have a warbonnet blackbird 1.7 dbl I'm interested in selling. I've used 3 or 4 times. It did have a small rip in a seam, but I sent it back to Warbonnet and Brandon repaired it.
It is in...
I have this TQ and am interested in selling, but mine is a long. It has 3oz of overfill.
Welcome to the forums. There are lots of meet ups in TX -> https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/forumdisplay.php/115-Southwest
If you're a cold sleeper I'd have a 20 degree UQ and 40 degree top quilt. Extra clothing doesn't help as well with bottom insulation because it compresses when you lay on it.
I've always put my feet on my pack, and I use 40 below down booties when it gets really cold. They've been great.
I'm not sure if it was already mentioned or not, but this approach seems like it would help in cold weather. If you used an 20 - 40 degree UQ under the 2.5oz of Apex, that would help eliminate...
Well, I'm bowing out. I caught a cold this week. I was hoping I would be over it by today, but it's hanging around. As much fun as this looks it's tough to get motivated to drive 5 hours to hike up...
+1 for this. I don't plan on hiking too far Friday night.
My Thanksgiving plans have changed, and I may be able to make this hang. If so, looking forward to it.
edit: If I do make it I'll be heading down Friday night, and spending Friday night at the...
My questions is more about the effect of putting the pad between the hammock and UQ. I believe most people put the pad above the hammock.
I have a 20* and 40* UQ.
Letting someone borrow my 20* and temps for my planned trip reach 32* at the lowest.
I don't really like using thinlight between my back and the hammock since it...
With the compression at the ends and the amount of insulation in there quilting loops help to ensure the insulation stays flat and uniform throughout the underquilt.
Sweet. I'll send it in. Thanks for the responses folks.
I'm decent at sewing, but I'm not sure what the best way to repair this is. Originally, this patch was sewn in the seem between the two sheets of ripstop. I don't think I can tuck it back into that...
This is my first hammock, and I've had it for a bit, but it's starting to rip in the place shown below. I don't believe that this would effect the hammock's ability to support weight, but want to be...
The larks head is how I had been doing it as well.
The mitten hooks are fueled by pure laziness. I can now avoid the enormous calorie expenditure of having to use a second hand to get my stuff...
+1 for backpack under the legs. Did this two weekends ago at 20* F. Works great in an enclosed (bug net) hammock.
If you're not in an enclosed hammock just slip a small (~ 1.5' x 2.5') piece of...
Thanks for the positive responses. I'm glad to be able to contribute something of value.
Now, try not sew your thumbs together :D
Not sure if this has already been done, but it seemed like a simple solution. By sewing in the mitten hooks, this sack doubles as a ridgeline bag and requires no additional connectors. The hooks are...
Too many stuff sacks.
You only need one for food, another for your clothes (doubles as pillow), and your Misc/First Aid sack (goes on ridgline). Everything else just gets stuffed in the pack...
My pack goes under my legs in the hammock.
In the winter this acts as my lower body insulation.
In warmer temps this saves me from wondering what crawled into my pack overnight.
Killing this thread. Going to sell elsewhere. You can always PM to check on this, but this no longer officially for sale here.
Poor jacket just sits there, uncompressed, in the top of my closet.
It looks so lonely.
huh. go figure. lighter stuff + stuff already used for hammocks = heavier fabric.
If this has already been discussed please point me to the thread, but this fabric seems like it would have some potential for hammocks.
bump. Only weighs ~16oz.
If I get a little chill on my back/butt I put the small pad directly under my back (between the hammock and my back) to cover from my shoulders to my butt.
You can always throw in a small 2' x 3' cut down pad (thinlight or z-light) in and use it as pack support in your back for added insurance. 3 - 4 oz weight penalty.
It's a weight penalty, but another solution is to carry a silk bag liner like this one:
Your bed at home is essentially a -50 degree UQ.
When you get too hot, you just throw the covers off.
I remember seeing that reflectix has an r-value of 1.1.
CCF depending on the thickness has as much as 2.5 r-value.
You should be fine with 2.5 CA. If you sleep reasonably warm, and wear your puffy to bed I think 40* is fine. I've done it, but that's definitely the low end. Here is a thread from thru-hiker.com...
Ha. That was the MB Frostline Parka - the, "I can't put my arms down" jacket.
Yup, had a great time. It was nice to meet all the locals and I'm looking forward to the next hang.
Here is a picture.
Yes, it has a hood.
