    I don't know what material Wookies are made from, but my 10D and 7D EE Revolt UQs are quite stuffable. Also, I have the suspension adjusted, with stopper knots on the LL3s, such that all I do is clip them in on each end and they're adjusted properly. I don't use any quilt hooks or other gizmos to hold them in place. Just seems to work. I'm 5'9" and I find the coverage with a 55" Revolt to be surprisingly good on the diagonal. As mentioned by cbm9000, I use my little foam sit pad under my heels and that works for me.

    In the summer I use a 36 liter pack and my warm weather kit fits in it with room to spare. Last night I had my shoulder season kit out and used my 52 liter pack and had a huge amount of space left over.

    Here's a summer setup that weighs about 2.5 lb for hammock, DCF tarp, and both quilts, incl all suspension, guy lines etc.


    I just wanted to say, that is pic, where ever it is, amazing. What a beautiful place to hang. I apologize, as I know this post has nothing of merit to add to this thread, I just wanted to comment on the pic.

    Thanks! That's not far off the AT, just north of Island Pond in Harriman State Park, NY.

    I think I can bring a 30 degree insulated hammock in between 1.5 - 1.75 lb. I'll let you know how that comes out.
    The Sheltowee/Bonfire Whisper came in @ 1.9# with a little overstuff.

    I haven't found the 11' HF DCF hex to have any significant volume penalty when folded, compared to my 12' AHE Toxaway/snake skins.
