    Point me in the right direction

    Ok I have taken the first steps to hanging. Now I need a little more help!!

    I have purchased a Blackbird Double Layer 1.1(Olive Brown) and the Woopiesling All-in one.

    I plan on using my sleeping bag (45 kelty Light Year) as a Over Quilt.

    I plan on purchasing:
    Speer SleepPad or a Hennessy “Radiant Double Bubble Pad XL”

    And as a trap a http://www.zpacks.com/shelter/hammock_tarps.shtml

    I am neither a cold or warm sleeper.

    This setup I plan on using in Southern VA & TN during July and Aug.
    Now will the CCF pad be enough to keep me warm? What are the pros and Cons of the two. The Speer is a lot lighter and smaller so that is a plus. Did I miss anything?

    You should be just fine in summer with that set-up. The may 45 kelty Light Year may let you down in an mountain-top chill....but you can always add clothes.
    Pads may make you a bit sweaty....depending on you. But you will be warm enough.
    Carry forth....
    I did a video series that may give some insight......http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=15516

    I can't say....don't have either. I would lean towards the JRB one though.
