    Pretty much this means post a photo of your complete sleep system for whenever you go camping. This includes winter systems as well.

    So the big white thing I use to tie everything together in the sled in the background. Works well to keep everything in place. Once I am at camp and unpacked, I throw it below everything like it is in this photo. Above that you can kind of see on the top right the corner of my Big Agnes Q-Core Sleeping Pad. Above that I put my jacket I use at the top, I like it being dark when I wake up so I have that above my eyes with my nose and mouth exposed to the air. It works nicely. The pillow is normally smaller and fleece, but that's to show I have a home pillow with me. If I can't get the sleeping bag I want off ebay next month, I'll be using this bag, which is inside out. And normally I have a wool blanket which I need to find at a thrift store. Holds in the heat well I think. The very top right of the photo is a grey thing, that's my summer bag I use alone.

    OR bivy sack, standard thermarest, blue tarp ground cloth and a 20 or 0 degree down bag. The 0 bag is from MEC the 20 is a kelty. Been using the same stuff for 20 years.

    Military modular sleep system for me as it has the two liners and the gore-tex breathable bivy sack.It's a bit heavy but worth the comfort,and you can remove or replace the liner/bags as needed according to the season.I slept in it in mid November,and early April,and was comfortable in it.I have another mummy bag,but I doubt I'll use that unless maybe June through August.Once in the compression bag that usually comes with the systems.it fits on top of my Trapper Nelson canvas pack.

    Mine is the same as @Flint_2016 has, and I usually have a tarp or poncho over me as well. Other than that I just use nature for a sleeping mat.

    Solo is as follows:
    Winter I am in my MSS on a wally mart self inflating pad, in my hammock with a double woobie underquilt, will be adding the eno ember to the mix this year. And I am looking for a down comforter to make a better uq out of.
    Spring/fall is hammock, eno ember 2 uq, Wool blanket and a woobie.
    Summer is hammock, single woobie uq with a woobie or wool blanket.
    Depending on weather I have a few tarps to cycle through, from my eagles nest diamond fly, a kelty 12' to a junky hardware store 12x16 which makes a good winter tarp/hammock tent.

    If I am with the kids I have mss for everyone, set up to match the weather, and we sleep on cheapo air mattresses in a cheapo amazon 4 person 3 season tent.

    This list is constantly evolving, as it tends to...

    here's one I use for quick/light trips- Apex Climashield quilt (rated to ~ 40)- about 14 oz, 20x40" 3/8" ccf pad- scored so it folds up and doubles as structure for a light pack-about 5 oz, eVENT bivy- adds warmth and keeps the elements out-about 11 oz

    Somebody needs to update their Photobucket account.
    I did say I'd post pix. I must find my camera and do it soon

    photobucket is dead- a couple of weeks ago they locked everyone's photos unless you were willing to pay them $399/year- from free to $399 they haven't had too many takers

    Wow I never saw that mentioned in the emails
    They won't get any money from me for sure, especially now this forum has plenty of storage for pix

    I made a debris bed with hemlock boughs,but not nearly enough were added.You must need about a three foot high pile to make it comfortable.I sandwiched the boughs inside an 6x8 tarp as eventually they'll probably be a home for ticks,and bugs of all sorts.In a year or two I'll remove the dead stuff,and replace them with more,plus some ferns or leaves in autumn.

    It has changed now but this is what I had about 2 years ago.

    [​IMG]

    My summer set up for "right now" is now more like 2.4 lbs because I would not even bring an underquilt and I changed the hammock to a single layer with outside bugnet (non-integral).

    I have a couple of setups. First is my small tent, next my new work in progress hammock setup. I have an Underquilt ordered but otherwise complete. I am also in the process of a hot tent set up and if I get that hammock deal right i will also upgrade that one to winter as well. BA Lost Ranger bag and I cant remember the name of the AirPad but it slips right into the BA bag. I plan on using the same bag with the hammock but as I mentioned the UQ with it. I use my BCUSA tarp for both and could ditch the tent and just use the tarp if there are no bugs.
