    Winter hammock setup, beginning with oversize synthetic, modified mummy bag. Hole cut in bottom of sleeping bag to allow hammock to be pulled through. Bag then wraps around hammock like a peapod, putting insulation outside and preventing insulation from being compressed by body weight. Beneath hammock and inside of bag is a layer of Reflectix foil faced bubble wrap insulation, with wings at shoulder height to provide insulation where hammock presses against shoulders. Hammock and bag are then strung inside a cotton canvas sock made from shrunk painter's drop cloths. Over the sleeping bag as a final layer of insulation is a down quilt. I have slept comfortably warm down to -2 deg. F with this rig. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    This is my homemade setup:

    10' 1.7oz HyperD hammock
    12'x9' SilNylon tarp
    Whoopie Sling and tree strap suspension
    Full length 50 degree bottom and top quilts, ClimaShield
    3/4 length 10 degree under and full top quilts, ClimaShield

    I'm using 2 sets of quilts for winter due to my "winter" 10 degree quilts were the first I ever made and aren't the greatest.

    I love how that cotton canvas sock blends your set up into the surrounding environment . Stealth camp !

    Really nice set up. Huge pat on the back for making all of your equipment. Wish I had those skills. I just have no clue how to use a sewing machine.

    Be safe.

    I fought hammock camping for years, decades actually, and finally tried it this past year! I'm completely hooked! I've managed to put in almost 3 weeks worth of overnights in my setup last year from warm summer nights to a low of 17 degrees and I haven't been cold or uncomfortable yet!

    My setup is an Esup Double hammock with an Eastern Ridge Hex Tarp.

    That tarp believe it or not is a tent rain fly. I didn't have the money to spend on a good one. This is from an 8 day trip by myself in South Eastern ny IMG_20140425_105639234.jpg IMG_20140425_105656620.jpg IMG_20140425_105705466.jpg

Not how many miles but how much CHILLIN I can do. I may only hike a few miles in and do my standard week hike just sitting there lol

    It's actually a rain fly for an 8 person Coleman tent.... I got it as a warehouse deal on Amazon which means damaged packaging for 15$ it's 3 years old..
    And thanks I like my cheap stuff as long as it works...

    The Wooki is pretty flippin' nice...truly no fiddling around with the underquilt...set it and forget it. I had an Incubator which was ok but I seemed to be endlessly trying to dial it in.

    Nice, I've been eyeing them for a while but I've known Adam since he was sewing in his garage and I just feel like I'm cheating lol. But this year may be the year, that looks really nice and I'm really lazy.

    The Wookie.... Awesome!! I love mine. I used an incubator for years and loved it as well but the no fiddle factor of the Wookie has me in a tight grip. Set it and forget it you won’t regret it!

    Mine is a Tingguian Tribe Sierra. Made in the Philippines. With bug net, integrated ridge line, paracord end loops, pocket, flat ropes and a quick-deploy tube pouch. Added drip lines for good measure. Could fit 6'2" guys with spaces to spare. Wide enough to sleep diagonally.

    From last weekend. You guys here sold me on the wookie and I picked a couple up this past spring.

    You were absolutely right. It's a game changer. Windproof and 0 adjustments.

    Using it with a dutch chameleon in that photo.

    i knew there was a reason for collecting segmented tent poles

    the arch provided sure looks roomy w/o sacrificing weather protection much at all

    Look at 'JustBill', Bill Townsend. He makes a 'Big Guy' and a Luxury hammock for bigger guys. A bridge hammock. I have one, they are nice.

    Absolutely. Warbonnet superfly tarp, warbonnetXLC hammock double layer, hammock gear burrow 20 top quilt, hammock gear incubator 20 under quilt, hammock gear ridgeline organizer, eno atlas tree straps. Slowly I pieced it all together over a couple years because all together it’s pretty pricey. I started with the hammock, under quilt, and tarp, then slowly upgraded the rest

    Apparently I don't have any pictures of my new set up... here is my old one. Out of this whole set up I only kept the top quilt, and my pillow, though I do miss the tarp a lot.

    My first hang, my setup is an Etowah 10x10 tarp, and a Grand Trunk Double Hammock. My butt was chewed up by the mosquitoes so I'm going to invest in a pre-made Fronkey bugnet, I'm debating if I should go with BIAS Buginator or the bottom entry bugnet from Dutchware.

    I paddled Fisheating Creek located on the West side of Lake Okeechobee, I camped at Fisheating Creek Outpost, the water was low so I had to get out and push my kayak when the water was really low.

    Here’s my daughter sleeping in her Amok Draumr 3.0. It was -13F that day. I took the picture from my Draumr 3.0. We spent 9 days sleeping outside to test her setup as there’s no better time or place than home to test out gear before heading into the woods! Mines been through all kinds of weather from 5 weeks in Hawaii, Vegas to the redwoods in California. It’s never failed me yet!
    Ends up it was to warm as she always had to open her quilt up.
    We both used our Amok Draumr 3.0.
    Both have Hammock gear burrow 0 degree quilts. Both had a pillow and both our mats were the Exped Quattro TT 9 synmat. Worked out perfect! We tried the same setup at a later time when it was teens at night and 20’s during the day and was good and I tried my 20 degree burrow quilt and was perfect! Love these gammons. No shoulder squeeze at all. I use it in recliner mode often! Don’t get me wrong. I love my warbonnet XLC and Ridgerunner but the Amok Draumr 3.0 seems to go on more trips these days.
    Not the best pictures but I only had my phone at the time. B4514266-ECAC-4831-9F82-3A4E958279A0.jpeg B01F9809-1BEB-4216-A1AB-CAD5E154C08C.jpeg 59B4C017-E51E-4903-A365-ECF3AA82E246.jpeg 2BC461FA-7E06-4DA6-9530-D3919EECB8A9.jpeg 30E85E27-2FF7-4400-BBB2-A56F98455014.jpeg

    Here is a rare shot of mine set up in my backyard campsite. I have been down to -22*F with the same hammock, but more insulation. 0329191931.jpg
