    Lazyness, comfort and ease of use

    Friends of suspended rest,

    I got tired of hauling gear AND a super duper 4-season tent And crawling on the ground. When I read an ultra light back packing book about hammocks I googeled my fingers raw. Thanks Shug (woohee budy) and others.

    Trying to find something to buy all I found domestically was the Exped Ergo.
    So I got some. Yes, its heavy and just long enough for me (5'11" / 179cm)
    but it IS a lot lighter then my tents.
    No more crawling or looking for flat ground.
    Since I got it last fall I got more then 30 nights hanging.
    Over the weekend my son and I was snug through a snow blizzard in Denmark.
    I have replaced stock suspention and ridge line with dyneema. When its raining i set the tarp first with seperate tree slings.

    I use sleeping pads for insulation and cover the inside with a 1/8" s 3mm EVA foam to avoid cold spots. I use regular (down) sleeping bags.

    Saving more weight and a faster setup is a priority.
    Retaining comfort in 4 seasons is a must

    Got lots to learn.
    All the best,

    Just checked on your images MAD777.
    Very impressive.
    Especially like cuben tarp and the light weight OQ and UQ.
    My hat is off to you
    (For winter (N55) I carry a 3lbs hammock system, 2lbs of insulation and a 3 lbs sleeping bag) Man, sometimes I miss Florida ...
