    Trying to use the sale to get a couple of new people into hammock camping. Defnitely worth the switch and not enough awareness among young people, IMO.

    It depends on what you're looking for really, that's why there's different models.

    I came across the idea of hammock camping when I was looking into ultralight backpacking, and it immediately appealed to me, since it solves all the issues with tents that I don't like (pack volume,...

    I guess I wasn't clear (also I meant "layers" not "liners"), but I meant to say he might have stayed warm more easily (with all the same gear) by wearing fewer clothes inside his sleeping bag, and...

    I haven't gone down to temperatures that low myself, but it looks like you're wearing an awful lot of liners inside your bag. If you had a synthetic, high-loft bag with that much insulation...

    It's a down/synthetic hybrid, with synthetic material for the back, footbox and hood, while the top is a layer of synthetic over a layer of down for loft. It's weird, but I've never seen this kind of...

    Ah. I've got a -20C bag (roughly -5F), but it only weighs about 4.4 lb and packs down to 15L. But hey, I'm Canadian, so it's just easier/cheaper for me to get ahold of that kind of gear.

    Kind of a newbie question here, but wouldn't it be easier to take the system down to lower temperatures just by beefing up your sleeping bag? I recently used an HH to well below freezing with no...

    Currently debating with myself whether or not this is worth it. I don't do much winter camping, but this would be a great lightweight/compact alternative to a sleeping pad.
