Merry Christmas !

And now that I have everyone's attention.............

I want a new quilt/sleeping bag (sack?) to use in my hammock.

So far I've looked at Enlightened Equipments Revelation X and Jacks"R"Better's High Sierra Sniveller.

Thoughts? Suggestions? I'm getting old and I get cold more easily so I want something the will keep me from shivering when it get's down to 20 or lower and yet can be opened up if it warms up.

Hammock is either a modified Hennessey or a War Bonnet double layer that I can slide insulation in.

Just got one of these http://www.golite.com/Adrenaline-800...ng-P46815.aspx to use in my hammock as a top quilt and doubles for use in my tent if necessary. I liked the center zipper but being a mummy it is a little tight for me,,,,,,,OK a lot tight. I'm 6' 3" and 240 lbs but I do fit in the bag its just zipping it all the way up comfortably is a little restricting, but it doesen't matter in my hammock being used as a top quilt

I considered one of these http://www.golite.com/UltraLite-800-...ar-P46823.aspx but wasn't sure about the padding sleeve and no center zipp

Excellent quality and price so its a keeper.

I bought one from Hammock Gear, the 0* incubator, for my ENO Doublenest. I think they make some for the non-gathered end hammocks too. Might check them out and when I get mine I can put some pictures up if you want.

I've got a HHExplDlx and use JRB Nest and Sierra Sniveler Long for bottom and top quilts. My arthritis keep me inside when the temps get into the 30's but I would still recommend JRB for the quilts.

Thumb Used my Henessey while doing the PCH

Used my Hennessy while going south from Vancouver to San Diego on the Pacific Coast Highway, keeping to the surf. Still have it in Guatemala as I continue on to Argentina, but camping has been scarce since then, and have used my little tent. Considering mailing it back home, but I'm still in love with it. Will probably lug it around the world regardless of how much I use it.

Lawson Review??

I have not seen anyone review the Lawson Blue Ridge Hammock. I own an ENO double nest and was looking for something of a hybrid and discovered the Lawson. Any feedback would be appreciated. ...
