    IX in double layer hammock

    Has anyone tried using the IX between the layers of a double bottom hammock? Is compression an issue with IX? It sounds like a layer or two or three (depending on temps) between the layers of a double layer hammock could be a great thing, but I'm not sure how much it would get compressed when you lay in it.

    IX does not perform well when compressed between the layers of a hammock.

    Wow .... It looks just like macs .... 5.0 ounces because I made it 34 inces wide and used heavier shock cord.

    And it's freaking hot! Of course, it's 70 degrees out with 70% humidity, but I couldn't lay in the HH for 15 seconds without starting to sweat.

    And the UQ, undercover, and hammock all slide right into the snake skins, no muss no fuss ...


    New life for the Exped.

    Whoopies, Dutch clips, stock huggers, space blanket, IX underpad, snake skins, soft shackles, Exped, and a sil stuff sack all for right at 3 lbs. I'm a happy little camper.
