    Post Sierra Designs Backcountry Bed

    Hey, so I stumbled upon an article from GearJunkie.com that talked about a new sleep system, due to come out at the beginning of next year.

    It's the new Sierra Designs Backcountry Bed and as soon as I saw it, I thought it would be perfect for winter/general hammock camping. It is completely zipper-less and basically acts as two top quilts that fit into one another.

    You can view the article here (http://gearjunkie.com/sierra-designs...d-sleeping-bag) if you want to check it out.

    The price tag for this seems crazy ($399 for 15* rating, $349 for 30* rating) but, if it could allow you to bring along a thinner UQ, and just use this as insulation as well as a TQ, I think it could be worth the money in the long run. It's supposed to weigh about 2lbs for the 30-degree bag and 2lbs, 7oz for the 15-degree.

    Let me know your thoughts!

    They still show it using a pad. IMO you are better off getting a dedicated UQ and TQ

    Interesting in that it uses a pad, and that the pad is attached to what is essentially a TQ. Would this mean that the pad would move with you in a hammock? The main problem with using pads in a hammock is that you move off of them and get cold spots. Might this prevent that?
