    Hi from Sweden!

    Hi! I'm Jimmy from Sweden. Me and my wife have just got us a pair of Hennessy Ultralite Backpacker Hammocks and we are now trying to figure out how to optimize the comfort when it's getting colder and harsh. Have to get better sleepingbags and a insulation system before winter comes (right now it's still quite cosy). Hope to learn from you pros and I'm going to upload some pics from our trips here in Sweden and Europe.

    Regards!

    Welcome! There are lots of helpful folks here, and tons of great advice. I'm a newbie myself, but I suggest checking out the stickies in the Hammock camping section, especially on Top Insulation, Bottom Insulation, and Weather Protection - they are amazingly informative. And if you haven't read it yet, Youngblood's thread on vapor barriers is a vital primer, or at least so it seemed to me.

    Welcome and enjoy!

    But now I've finished Beavering, I don't know what to do
    I'm growing old and feeble, and I can Beaver no more
    So I'm going to work my ticket if I can!

    I don't remember where I saw it, but you might check out the honeymoon tarp. That way yall can both hang under the same tarp.

    Welcome from Florida! You will find lots of insulation help in the sub-forums on "top insulation" and "bottom insulation". Pay special attention to "bottom insulation."
