    seems to me that the #4 snake skins are going to be way to big for the mac cat tarp. and for the single ENO hammock too... even w/ the bug net.
    but if you were going to be using an under quilt & leaving it on the hammock when you slide the skins, the #4 may be about right. ...tim

    I am trying to not think about winter yet until I get hooked and comfortable setting up. THEN I won't mind the extra weight! There are so many options as far as keeping warm. SO I KNOW I am going to a down bag...I wanna test out a ccf and down sleeping bag then see if I wanna try a UQ. Thanks for the advice though I will remember it for future reference! And most thanks for the mesh tarp skin contribution! The minute I read that I was like YES my tarp can dry out more easily! You hangrs are tho thmart!

    Am I correct in understanding that a HH a-sym ultralight and a JRB Nest will fit into #4 skins?

    Thanks,
    I've read pros and cons to using skins. It seems like it would be a quick way to pack the hammock and underquilt and stuff it in the pack. I like the idea of leaving the tarp on the outside of my pack.

    With HH Exployer ultralight per the JRB dimensions they fit, but it is a tight fit. Adding a couple inches or width made them really easy to get on and off.
    Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

    Does anyone make them or is it a do-it-yourself item? That would be like the #6 mentioned above?

    Hennessy sells skins, but I don't think they make any that big. I might be wrong on that though. Either way, nobody else sells them because Hennessy has patents out the ying-yang. JRB was selling Python skins for a while (pretty much what you're looking for), but they ran into issues with Hennessy and had to stop.
