    The following thread is a gear list for cold weather hangin.
    www.hammockforums.net/forum/showthread.php?t=345

    All I remeber is that my tent weight days were "Heavy."
    Now that I'm hangin and an ultralighter, my total overniter winter weight is
    around 14-16lbs. Including a liter of h2o and food.
    Weight would vary depending on expected lows and weather or not I had hanging company
    that would be borrowing some of my gear. Remember to plan for temps around 10 degrees lower
    than expected. Call it a safe, warm, comfort zone.

    Old ground days

    Tarp (including eight stakes, stuff sack, and cord) - 26 oz
    Drawstring bug shelter (including stuff sack and cord) - 5 oz
    Long Cat's Meow Bag (including stuff sack) - 50 oz
    8 section Z-Rest - 9 oz
    2 mil plastic ground cloth - 10 oz
    Total - 100 oz (6.3 lbs)

    Currently

    Hennessy ULB (including stuff sacks, tarp, stakes, huggers) - 33 oz
    Ray-Way top quilt (including stuff sack) - 28 oz
    Kickass underquilt (including stuff sack) - 30 oz
    Total - 91 oz (5.7 lbs)

    I would certainly knock a lot of weight off of that ground set-up now, probably about a pound and a half. I'm still more than happy with my current set-up and am actually going to add a bit of weight with a new tarp and possibly new, homemade hammock.

    Homemade hammock, JRB tarp, ropes, stakes 28 oz
    North Face Fisson 20 degree - Long 38 oz
    Marmot Pounder 40 degree - Regular 16 oz

    I use the Pounder as a quilt when temps get in the mid twenties or lower. The Fission is used peapod style around the hammock.

    5lbs 2oz total and to think my tent alone used to weigh more than this. My low with this setup is 13 degrees.

    HANGnOUT, I like the sound of that. Do you have any pictures? Isn't the Fission the one with the short zipper? Did you have to modify it to get it to wrap around?

    Modifications consist of a hole in the foot end and attachment cords on both ends. I just lay in the hammock and pull the bag up around me, attach the head end cord, and zip up. I experimented with several old bags before perfecting this setup without cold spots. The foot end is the problem spot when using a sleeping bag around the hammock. The Pounder used as a quilt helps with this. I have another bag with a full length zipper I use for camping on my property. It is more convenient but heavier. The Fission with the short zipper is one of those compromises to save weight on my hiking trips.

    I hate pads and getting in the sleeping bag inside the hammock. Next year I may try the nest/quilt route but for now I can use my current gear and stay warm.
