Hi all, new poster here.
I am curious what people advice for someone like me. I have lots of camping experience but no hammock experience.
I am currently thinking of buying the warbonnet blackbird 1.7 double layer hammock, and am debating about whether or not to buy the yeti bottom and top quilt plus tarp at the same time.
I am planning to camp in the valleys of some low mountains in all seasons including this autumn and winter. I expect it could get quite cold but snow doesn't fall that often in these areas even in the mountains. There are rivers and streams that cool down the valleys quite a bit though.
Does anyone have any advice for me?
I live in Tokyo Japan so shipping from the USA is expensive if everything is sent from different manufacturers at different times..if I order it all from one place it saves me a lot of money. Japan makes great products sometimes but camping gear is not one of them unfortunately, camping in Japan means having a barbeque 2 hours from the city and going home the next day for most people.
Again the things I'm considering and would like advice about:
Warbonnet 1.7 double layer hammock
Warbonnet yeti and top quilt
Budget is not really a big deal for me but I don't like wasting money if I can get the same performance out of something cheaper. Weight is a bit of an issue as I am also hauling around gold prospecting equipment to my camp location.
