I'm diving into my new hammock camping decision head first,
just bought a HH Hyperlight Asym zip,
Planning on 200mile AT section hike in July,
from (Bear Mountain) Hudson River NY, to MA/VT state line,
First a question,
What is recommended for under layer hammocking insulation for mid-summer in New England?
And to follow up,
Anyone can recommend a sleeping pad for the hyperlite?
Looking for optimal modifications I can complete in the next 2 weeks,
Dutch's ridgeline system
Tulle fabric tarp skins.
piece of tyvek for groundcloth,
I'm going to attempt this hike using the standard Hyperlite Rainfly 20D Silnylon that comes with the hammock. When I have more time I'll jump into the world of finding a larger tarp.
I have an unused roll of Reflectix and some HVAC tape, I can definitely make a torso pad, and can maybe make a fullsize pad out of it, would that be too much/too little for summer hiking in New England? Is the HH Radiant Double Bubble Pad the absolutel optimal size pad, I know plenty people here had attempted using the windshield reflectors that are generally much wider than the HH made one, are they cutting it down...
My other option on hand is a Thermarest Z Lite regular size, which I need to cut down to fit my pack, has anyone tried cutting out single panels and attaching them as wings to the Z Lite torso area? Idea coming from the Eno sleeping pad Wings adapter I saw on the forum.
Looking for any suggestions for any mods I don't know about, any veteran advice appreciated,
