    Winter Hammocking

    I read on WB that some guy had his basic winter setup for his hammock. He said it would hold him to about 15° to 20°. He also mentioned that the total weight was 6-7 lbs.

    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?
