That seems awful heavy to me. Was he over estimating his weight or adding way to much stuff to his hammock. Yeah I know hard to say w/out knowing his setup.
I know my winter setup tent, 15° bag and pad weighs in at 4.75 lbs or 6.75 lbs if I use a -5° bag. It has been a while since I have used that though.
Was his weight normal for winter?
I think that 6-7 for winter is pretty good considering that in addition to off setting the winter bag and full winter pad, it also off sets the tent and ground cloth by including the hammock and tarp.
