    This is a good way of converting current gear to work but if you are going to buy something I would strongly consider the nest/quilt route. I need a 90 inch long bag with an 8 ft hammock to make a good fit without coldspots. I have had my friends use my extra setups and this seems to be the optimum size. A regular size sleeping bag just has never worked for me using it this way with the hammock. I had a couple worn out bags I used for testing before cutting a hole in my Fission bag. Just to state the obvious, this is for speer style hammocks. Also when using a bag around the hammock it limits how much you can lay aysm in the hammock. I suggest testing at the house before getting out on the trail!

    That sounds like a great set-up and you've done it very light. Got any pictures?
