I have been inspired from Shug's videos to try hammock camping. I recently had some knee surgery this past year and wanted to get back into backpacking. After evaluating my gear, I thought about lightening my gear but didnt want to sleep on the ground. So I found you guys and I just completed my setup.
Last night I slept in my backyard between my guava and orange tree. Temp was around 49*F.
ENO Pronest Hammock
Eno Profly Tarp
My suspension system consist of 3/4 inch webbing using 2 descending rings as a buckle
Kelty Light Year 40*xp
-I just got this bag in the long. It weighs 2lbs 1oz, I am only 5' 5" and setup the sleepingbag around the hammock. the Light Year series has a zipper foot vent that allows this.
Overall I was comfortable but need to make more insulation happening between the hammock and bottom portion on the sleeping bag wrap. I tried using a space blanket but still got cold butt. I will try using my Big Agnes pad for insulation tonight.
Let me know what you guys think of the setup and any suggestions would be great.
