    That's not that bad, look at some of the selections Grand Trunk has for their Ultralight series Blue or Red Hawaiian Print

    Not sure if this counts, it was my first hammock setup.

    Coyote Brown, WBBB1.0
    Grey MaCat Standard
    Sliverish Molly Mac Orca UQ
    Purplish/Eggplant color Western Mountaineering Highlight bag being used as a TQ

    I miss my 4.8Lb base weight as a ground dweller...But I sure DON'T MISS the ground.

    My forum name is Fish<><; I'm in the navy; and I hate sleeping on the ground. If I didn't need ground to walk on or measure resistance to, I think I could happily give it up.

    Here is a vid from my first attempt at hammock camping...
    The hammock is an old-school wwII jungle hammock, with an old blanket sleeping bag as a UQ

    I think it's actually a thing of beauty, but some seem to be "put off" by it? (It could be the fact that I might be standing next to it in a kilt?)

    I've got a matching top quilt. Now...If I could just find a matching tarp!

    If you ain't havin' fun, you're doin' it wrong
