Im starting an AT thru-hike on April 8th. I currently have an MSR Hubba Hubba tent, but after talking to some friends and reading some reviews, i think im going to join the ranks, go with a hammock and thank god for the return policy at REI.
After reading alot of stuff on the internet, im thinkin about going with a Warbonnet Blackbird 1.1. It sounds great, but im having trouble figuring out what i should do for a UQ and TQ. Ill be starting in GA in april, so im hopin the temps wont be too cold for too long.When it comes to quilts, I see alot of DIY stuff and more brand names and abbreviations than you could shake a stick at.
Im not lookin to spend alot of cash. Every extra dollar spent on an insulation system is one less beer when i come into town. I appreciate any suggestions at all. Thanks!
