However, I'll definitely end up using the travel blanket as insulation for a dog bed once it gets cold enough for it.
I`m in clarke nx 250 for summer Kifaru woobie x2 one under one over , for winter Carinthia survival down sleeping bag plus down exped mat never been cold even below 28 c
Total summer rig $700
Total winter extreme rig $850 pricey but quick simple and 100% never cold not heavy not bulky . Tarp for the summer etc is mountain laurels cuban fiber , and the winter is the clarkes vertex aghh! comfort cheers
OK. I'll give it a try.
BIAS WW Hammock/Suspension 65.00 ~ 12 oz
Knotty Mods 20.00 ~ 2 oz
Toxaway Tarp 95.00 ~ 14 oz
Tarp Ridgeline + Tie outs 26.00 ~ .70 oz
CCF Blue Pad 6.00 ~ 7 oz
$212.00 ~ 2.975 lb
*You can go cheaper on the Tarp RL. Prices & Specs on TRL taken from Sgt Rock's kit, so you probably can't go any, better or lighter. Thnx Rock!
So this is very close to a $200 dollar, Sub 3 lb kit w/o bugnet sans top insulation.

This place you say your lookin' for
It might have washed out with the rain
Might not be there anymore
Might not be the same
Top that rise and face the pain
That comes to $194.99. Not bad!
My gear on the cheap:
- Hammock: Butt In A Sling Weight Weenie Hammock with suspension kit and ridgeline: $55 (8.5 oz. hammock + 4 oz. for suspension = 12.5 oz.).
- Net: BIAS Buginator Net - $60 (8.8 oz.)
- Tarp: Hammock Bliss Shelter - $50 (17 oz.)
- Bottom insulation - CCF Pad - $10 (7 oz.)
Total - $175/2.83 lbs.
Now carrying the Mini Tattoo Stove!
Light weight. Low prices. Great gear.
Great thread and good sound advise and info all around, thanks all for contributing.
I am looking for the cheapest hammock with a insect net. So far, I am considering the Byer of Maine Moskito Traveller Hammock for about $40 and the Grand Trunk Ultralight Skeeter Beeter Hammock for about $60. Are their cheaper alternatives with a net?
I also plan on getting a camo tarp; any suggestions? Thanks.
After my purchases and trial & error, I think DIY is the way to go, unless you can find a used setup somewhere.
