    Welcome at the forums
    Try this Kelty http://www.austinkayak.com/products/...r-12-x-12.html
    I have the 9x9 and it works out just fine......

    CCF thickness?

    My current rig is as follows.

    ENO Single Nest $35 (used)
    ENO bug net $60
    25' of 3/16 Dyneema $15 (eBay)
    25' of 1" nylon tube webbing $12 (eBay)
    2 Rap Rings $4
    2 Metolius Carabiners $15
    25' of 2mm Dyneema for ridge line $10 (eBay)
    2 NiteEyez S-clips $4
    Kelty Noah's Tarp 9 (includes stakes) $40(eBay)
    2 six inch pieces of 3/8" aluminum bar stock to use as toggles $2

    Wow, I guess I really did spend nearly $200.

    But... I have no bottom insulation. I was thinking of CCF, but what thickness works well enough? Are we talking Yoga Mat (3/16") or ground pad (3/4")? Or somewhere in between?

    Where is the point of diminishing return?

    I'm a real noob! First Post.

    The info in this post has been very helpful. But it has also been very interesting to check out the gear being used in the profiles of you experienced folks that have posted.

    Re: Newbie Hammock Setups.

    Welcome to the forum. Tons of great ideas and ways to hang. I'm still trying new things. That's one of the thing I really like. It can keep you engaged.

    Looks like you have a great start rig working. Hang for a while and you'll know what you need, or want, when upgrading. Get it Get it Gone..............
