    Anti-gravity powder.

    Seriously, elastic shockcord works better than AGP.

    If you see in my photo, there are suspension lines, adjust them til it's snug. it's all shock cord btw. since I took that pic I replaced the suspension lines and repaired the draw string at the foot and it all snugs up nicely now. Now there's no adj needed, just clip it on and it's done. If it's too warm I can let it out some .......

    i've been using a synthetic 20 degree bag as a peapod , and it's just darn uncomfortable ,so i've been thinking about cutting it up , sewing it up and adding some shock cord and runners to my ridgline and using it as an UQ. i'll get some pictures up if all goes well. im sure others have done this before...

    Kycamper,

    I use the setup you describe.
    bottom to top: open cell foam
    zipped down sleeping bag (30 degree)
    space blanket


    So the sleeping bag is sandwiched between the open cell foam and the space blanket.

    The down compresses a bit, but still adds a lot of warmth to the system.
    I sleep comfortably down into single digits with this setup.

    FYI, I use a 15 degree bag inside the hammock.


    try it and see how it works for you...

    did you see the pics of mine earlier in this thread?
    I did exactly what you're about to do.
    I sewed on loops as attachment points for the shock cord.
    carabiners quick connect it all ......
