Privet. :-) That is exactly what I'm thinking right now! BB 1.1 single layer and some of their large tarps.I have the Hennessy Hyperlight. While it is a great hammock, I prefer the Warbonnet Blackbird and a larger tarp. I carry a small pad, but I rely on the quilts to insulate.
Btw, how the fabric of Blackbird feels comparing to Hennessy Hyperlight? I heard that Hyperlight feels like silk. I think that is very important. And what about skeeters resistance of BB's fabric? What are other benefits of Blackbird?
I will use shipito.com to gather all my shipments in US and send them in one bunch to my home, so that is not a problem.If shipping costs to Russia are too great from two manufacturers, then get the MW3 and their Hex Tarp.
I also find that foot insulation is better in quilt form. If I wear socks my feet get cold, If I trust my UQ and TQ to keep me warm I'm better off. This is a hard lesson, but sometimes you've got to take your socks off, even in winter (note these were dry socks!).Got it.If you don't want to use a pad, you will need a full-length UQ. I have a 3/4 and a full-length UQ, and I can feel the difference on my legs.
That is my plan for last few hours. :-)In my opinion, if you get a JRB Wearable Quilt and a Hammock Gear Incubator, you will be warm in most conditions.
I have some tricky plan to have a basecamp, and then to take my hammock, tarp, TQ&UQ, some food and other stuff (everything up to ≈7lbs) and travel overnight to close interesting spots. So I want less things to manage and do it really quick, like few minutes and I'm ready to go.However, it sounds like you are base camping in one spot for a period of time and if that is the case, weight is not an issue, definitely go full length.
