Good day all,
First off my handle tinstar77... as Im in law enforcement and have been for several years, prior to that I was Military for a short time (Too hard on the family life).
I LOVE the outdoors and get out on day and over night hikes as often as I can without neglecting the fam. to much!!!
I am a new hanger!! I received my hammock from my wife for Christmas this year (as per my request)... I received a Hennesy Hammock with the Hex cover!! I love it so much I convinced a young officer in my office to get one to, we now hike together often!!
I was an avid ground sleeper until this year!! much happier now!!
HOWEVER, loving it a side I am (as well as my friend) are running into 1 issue...I believe its referred to as "Cold *** Syndrome"... haha
Its been cool at night this summer (5 degrees Celsius) , VERY hot during the day (30 degrees Celsius) !! the problem for me is I am fighting the suggestions for an under quilt etc. due to the added weight of several pounds, at present I am carrying around 30lb with my H2O and my pack is at max capacity!! are there any solutions that are light weight?? thanks all.
Glad to be part of the group!!
