I have been hammocking on and off for about 2yrs. I still have no idea what my setup is.
Homemade HH-style rolled hammock
Ring Buckle Supports
WM Highlite $249 14.8oz (used as a quilt)
GG Thinlight 1/8" 3/4 Sleeping pad $9 2.2oz
9'x8' Catenary Cut Tarp Based on the BlackCat
$10 ~9oz ($1/yd 1.1oz Silnylon)
6 Titanium Stakes $15 1.3oz
Total $318 2.4lbs
ULA Conduit $125 21oz
Total Plus Pack $443 3.73lbs
I think that is the first time I put that down. I would say that is not too shabby. However, I still need to figure out a couple things. I was thinking of making a hammock sock and some python skins. Probably would add $20 and 8oz putting me at $463 and 4.23lbs.
However, this may all change in another month.
Also, with my wife we may be using a doubles hammock.
