    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

    Thanks it keeps me dry in the worst of rain and it's been tested... It also opens up nice so I can sit in my hammock and chill... This years hike is going to be about JUST THAT... 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.
