    The green is the hammock body.

    The blue looks like an under quilt and the green is the hammock.

    but what kind of material is it? I know the green is the hammock with the blue underquilt. What is the green material in the first picture with the trekking poles spreading the hammock open.

    is it a satin, silk, nylon, etc

    I think that's Tim's new Peapod, so I would guess that it's some form of nylon. Probably 1.1 or 1.9 oz. DWR, whatever Ed uses.

    the 1st picture you posted (message 22) is the pea pod which is rip stop. it's an older model w/ 550 down & sewn through construction.
    as far as the trekking pole goes, lay in your hammock & reach up w/ your hands & spread the top edges apart. it doesn't take much force & it gives you a more roomy feel in the hammock & allows you to better view the world around you.

    the 2nd picture (message 30) is the insulated hammock (synthetic). the dark green inside is the hammock body (probably about 1.9 oz material) & the blue is the outer shell (about 1.1 oz).
    both came from the $1.00 bin.

    maybe i'm too late to chime in on this one :(

    I've got the original Speer PeaPod, and the newer 30degree model.
    The older model is now a home bed quilt, the newer model rules the world for speer type hammocks.....i use 2 systems, the HH light racer with various underquilts by JrB dependind on temp in spring/summer/fall and the speer with the pod in late fall/winter/early spring...I have never slept in the peapod without something between me and the top of the hammoc/peapod, that usually means a top quilt-I use Nunatak, either the Ghost,Alpinist, or Arc depending on temp....but i have slept in the peapod with just my clothes, specifically montbell parka and pants and this was cozy to 32-34F...so i was carrying these anyway, also carried the top quilt but forgot to unstuff it...of course site selection was good and i was using the mccat deluxe so little wind got my way.
    Bottom line, if you are carrying a jacket of significance--like a WM Flight or the Montbell Thermawrap you may not need to carry a top quilt...
    Sorry I was late.

    Tim, thanks for the info. The reason I asked is that the material didn't look like rip stop. It looked like some other type of material.

    the material on the speer pea pod is rip stop, but both the green & the blue stuff on the insulated hammock is not... just $1.00 nylon from wal-mart.
