I'm a lightweight backpacker in New England and interested in trying out life in a hammock. The White Mountains here are really rocky, and while I love my tarptent contrail setup (Marmot Hydrogen and Neoair short) it's often a pain to find a decent place to set up (especially after dark). With lots of trees in the area, hammocks hold a certain appeal...
I've been trying to do research into what kind of rig would work for my summers in this region, but there are lots of options and I'm simply unfamiliar with them. A key will be keeping weight to an absolute minimum while not making the experience harsh and discouraging. Here's what I'm considering:
WBBB 1.0 DL w/ line/strap susp. (22.5oz)
WB Yeti underquilt (12.5oz)
WB Asym-Diamond sil tarp (7.5oz)
Does this setup sound reasonable for a 6' 180lb male with fairly broad shoulders? Are there other options that I should consider? Am I missing any key pieces that I'd need in order to make the transition? I'd love to test a couple of systems, but probably best to know what's likely to work well before I start begging and borrowing!
Thanks in advance!
