    Yes and I love it. It is great cause you put on your sleeping bag and then get in your hammock. Only downside is the my feet tend to get cold unless I wear down booties. It is slightly heavier than an ultralight bag but 2 extra zipper has to weigh something.

    I have the winter wren and it's one of my favrite pcs of kit.
    You can use it like peapod system and that is how I've used it in a hammock.

    Fourdog - I love that pic - it was the reason I decided to check out the FF Wren - and I've wanted one ever since. My thru is going to be (slightly to my dissatisfaction) a summer hike - and if I don't need a piece of kit for my thru - I can't afford it.

    But one day!

    the wren came in last night.

    FF was great to deal with - and i'm more than happy
    with its ability to function as a pod, as well as a top bag.

    the winter edition is burly and i look forward to many warm nights in
    the hammock, as well as around camp in blown-out jacket mode.

    to note, as a user of TQ's... i look forward the wren's ability to fully wrap the user up. i know the insulation properties are smashed beneath me, but that is what the pad or UQ is for. i think there is something to be said about how thermally efficient a fully enclosed bag w/ hood can be. and i especially like the ability to zip open the arm holes and not be confined like in a traditional bag. oh, and being able to pop open the bottom for easy exit is pretty cool too.

    all that said, i still very much like my Top Quilts, and have never really had a huge problem with drafts and gaps. my TQ set up is 10 oz. lighter, too, but i'm nonetheless happy to add to my insulation options, because frankly, i missed my sleeping bag
