First off, let me say that before I got a hammock for xmas, I had no idea there was this much activity and option around them. I am looking forward to the future of digging into this forum and actually getting a few nights in the woods in my new hammock.
With that being said...This may sound like a dumb question, but I am pretty confused when i look at the top quilts. aren't they just a sleeping bag unzippered most of the way? So is this mainly a weight thing or what? I look forward to all replies!!!
