    What bag do you use with your HH?

    I'm about to get a HH Exedition Asym. At some point, I'll also need a new bag. What works the best with the HH's? I was thinking a center zip would work well. Something with a pad sleeve like a BA? Bear in mind, I may need to ground pitch occasionally.

    I have an HH Explorer UL and Deluxe. I use a BA Lost Ranger +15(left zip) and find that it works well! Good Luck....

    The Rock Wren looks like what I had in mind. Are there any other companies that make a bag in that style?

    What temps will you be using the bag/quilt in?

    JRB No Sniv Quilt
    WM Summerlite, full zip (use it like a quilt when No Sniv is underquilt)
    I camp mostly in 40 degree and up temps.

    Around here you never know. Probably "never" lower than an occasional 20deg. I've been car camping for the last 4 years, and I'm trying best to whittle my pack weight down (on a (tight) budget).

    Either a Feathered Friends Rock Wren or Winter Wren. My Winter Wren has worked great with my Speer and would be at least as good with a HH.

    Whittle away... cut a bag into a quilt or get a quilt either way.... save the weight.... bags are not necessary in hammocks.

    A quilt will work on the ground as well.... Because .... the pad you are planning to use any way is the real bottom insulation in the hammock or on the ground.... BTW you will need side insulation jam pads, cross pads or someting else or you will be cold.

    I 'm biased when it comes to quilts.

    I will have to agree with Rasputen. I have a couple HH's, and a a couple ENO's. I use a BA Lost Ranger with a thermarest mil issue pad. I have used it down into the low 30's, and could easily hit the high 20's with comfort. Happy Hanging.
    I trust everyone, it is the devil in side them i dont trust.
