Yesterday I took the plunge and ordered what I hoipe is a complete hammocking sleep system to get me started.
But being a complete noob I thought I'd check with you folks to make sure I did not leave anything out, as non of this stuff can be sourced locally. So I do not wan't to lay siege to the mail box for a week, only to find out I forgot to order something essential, and will have to wait another week before I get to play with the goodies :-)
Oh, and tips about nice to have stuff is also appreciated :-)
Okay here is what I got on my list:
A hammock - TW Bivi Hornet XL (1,8m wide)
Under quilt - DD Snugpak under blanket
Tarp - DD XL Coyote Brown 4,5x3m
hammock suspension: Amsteel whoopie slings and trehuggers + carabiniers
300 ft of 550 paracord for tarp suspension, ridgelines etc...
Sleeping bag: Isbjørn Jan mayen (Comfort -22*C, extreme -40*C)
Else I got a Jerven bag, a Norwegian made bivi/survival bag that is like a space blanket on steroids. It zips up like a sleeping bag, with zippers on 3 sides and is insulated. That should get me out of the weather if it turns to muck on me...plus a couple of foam sleeping pads...
Anything I may have forgotten?
