How's it going? New to the forum, old to hammocks. I have had hammocks for years now, and just found your forum a while back. I started out with a generic nylon hammock and a Kelty Noah's Tarp 12.....works great when there aren't any skeeters. Next I bought a Byer's Moskito Hammock , it doesn't work well. Then, this month I found a Hennesy Hammock Expedition Asym Classic on sale for $80 at a store by Seneca Lake. It even came with Snake Skins. The price was right so I snagged it without any research. I set it up once and it looks nice. How easy is pad and sleeping bag use? It appears that it might be a struggle. I was camping a couple of weeks ago with the Scouts and it was in the upper 20's. No sweat with a blue pad and a zero degree bag. Both are no problem with my old school setup as it is wide open from the top. I am pumped to try it out ASAP...........cabin fever has set in already.
