    New hanger from Texas

    Hi fellows and ladies, just wanted to introduce myself.I'm an avid outdoorsman and I just ordered an ENO Doublenest,this will be my first hammock.I just found this websight and was somewhat overwelmed.I don't know any of the terminology yet so I have a lot of reading and learning to do. Where should I start reading on here?

    Hi and Welcome.

    There is so much information here it'll make one's head spin. Consider, as a starting point this: Acronyms Link

    - Why not find out about different types of hammocks? Bridge.. Gathered-end , and how the designs effects the lay?
    - Why not look into pad vs under quilt?
    - Why not look at the different manufactures / services? http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/forumdisplay.php?f=2

    Enjoy!!!

    Welcome from the Heart of Texas

    It's hot down here so I start with a good hammock and weather/sun protection (good tarp), then I work on bottom insulation (it get chill at night sometimes), pad is cheap but underquilt so comfy! There is no need for top quilt for me right now, you can always improvise something from your gears. That's really all you needed.

    Enjoy and have fun.
