Hello all, I finally got a chance to use my Summer Phoenix and Summer Burrow last night and I could not be happier. I ordered them in a custom color combination with green on top and grey on the bottom and they look super sexy. If you haven't had the chance to see Hammock Gear's work up close yet, let me tell you they are a work of art. All that's is great but how they perform is even better.
Last night was crystal clear, no cloud in the sky with a slight breeze out of the east. The temps got down into the low 60's, a perfect summer night. I started out with just the top quilt because I didn't think I would need the bottom. After a short while I started to get a touch of the cold butt so I strung up the under quilt for the first time in the dark. Easy as could be and I soon settled in for the best night's sleep I ever had in the woods. I only woke twice all night, once to see a man about a horse and the other due to a pack of coyotes making their close presence know around 3am. When I finally woke up in the morning, I was slightly sweaty with half of my top quilt pushed down to my feet. These things crank out the heat even though they are so small and light. I am a totally happy camper.
