    I dabbled with a 3/4 UQ (WB Yeti) and I must say, I prefer using a pad with my double-layer WBBB.

    When you a use pad (say, a Z-rest) it under the double layer, it tends to stay put throughout the...

    I was on the Timp Pass on a muggy day back in September, in that sort of swampy valley near the Herbert Mine, and alarmed a LARGE rattler. He gave me a...

    I would say upgrading a sleeping bag to a TQ is the least worthwhile if you've already got a bag. A good down mummy bag doubles as a topquilt when unzipped (you'll note that TQ's are cut much like an...

    That's an interesting idea.

    I wrote a thread a while back about how the bars actually broke in half under my weight when I essentially hung the hammock from paracord tied to the bars. It became...

    No I never did, but I estimate the two bars add up to around a pound together, maybe a little more. So I guess without the bars, it's around 3ish lbs, maybe a bit more? Unfortunately there's no way...

    This is actually really interesting -- so, tie the cords tighter in the center of the spreader bar, to reduce the sag? If this works, it could breathe new life in the LBRH... but the instability...
