    That one special piece of gear?

    I thought it would be fun if everyone shared what their favorite piece of hammock related gear is. That special piece of gear that keeps you comfortable and happy in some way. That one piece you wouldn't want to hammock camp without. (I'd say let's not include the actual hammock here, but rather any sort of hammock related gear: TQs, UQs, UQPs, tarps, socks, weathershields, suspension, pads, etc etc etc).

    I'll start. For me it is my 0*+ Incubator UQ from Hammock Gear. It is very rare for me to spend so much money on one piece of gear, but it was worth every single penny. While I haven't tested it in extreme conditions, I have been down to 26* F with it and it kept me toasty warm. During milder weather it does not overheat me. It weighs less than 2 lbs and packs so small. I truly love it and it makes hammock camping for this gal (with a worn out thyroid) not only doable but insanely comfortable!

    What's your one special piece of hammock related gear?
    With a radical sense of hope, I strive for the seemingly impossible.

    HG 0* Burrow. Heavenly!
    Grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, the strength to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.

    Great question! Do backpacks count? If so, I absolutly love my new arc blast---its crazy light, comfortable, and a real joy to use! (early christmas present from the wife! ) A very close second will be my hammock gear 20 degree burrow. Its just a beautiful piece of gear--a work of art!

    My WBBB SL 1.7. I take it on all my trips. It's just become the old reliable for me. I do want to get an XLC and RR and a Dream hammock one day but funds require me to be more reserved in my gear buying and the BB has served and is serving me well.

    I'm just a simpleton - HH Hammock/tarp, a pad and a sleeping bag.
    I am playing with a DIU Tyvek sock and Jarbridge Apex UQ - maybe these will pop up to the top of the list after mote testing.
    Enjoying the simple things in life.

    When trying to pack light everything becomes essential, but if i had to choose, my JRB HRQ would have to be up there as it was my first TQ and there's a special bond with it. Also my OES black MacCat Deluxe and Bushbuddy stove. You see, hard to name one.
