So I am new to hanging and decided I would go all in and purchase solid gear from the start.. Was done with tenting...I can assure you it was well worth every dollar, good hammock, underquilt and tarp... I use a Canadian military extreme cold weather system as a top quilt.. the inner bag with liner works just just like a TQ and has a great cold weather rating down to at least -20*C..if I add the outer bag can get down to -40*C with ease... I tinkered with the set up in the garage and then first hang was a stealth hang in -3*C and it was the best sleep I have had... It could have been influenced by a consumption of little JD..none the less it was perfect...
When asked why I sleep with my shoes on? I don't need to out run a bear, just need to out run my camp mates.
