Anyone using that method regularly?

I use binders but with a webbing suspension on my HHED. Webbing and chinch buckle to be exact.

Rumor has it there are entire sites dedicated to motorcycles too and folks post about "farkeling" them until they work like they want...weird huh?

I take it you have not tried hammock camping yet?

I hung at the ADV Old's School Rally at Blue Ridge Motorcycle Campground in Cruso, NC, the last weekend in April. It rained pretty much all weekend, and it got into the 30s both nights.

I stayed warn 'n' dry using my Warbonnet Superfly tarp over my Warbonnet Blackbird hammock with Hammockgear down underquilt and topquilt.





DocWells was there with his rig. Anybody else been out hanging?

Chris

Nice setup. Which underquilt are you using?

Thanks!

I have the Hammockgear 0-degree Incubator. Mine is a 2010 model. There have been some upgrades since then, but mine is an awesome underquilt. I use it year-round.

I've done a few local, in-the-afternoon hangs lately in my ENO Doublenest. I need to hang more.

It may be wet again, though.

Have fun,

Trying out my WBBB and Superfly setup for the first time away from the house at the Eastern/Rick's RV next weekend. That is, if WB gets my tarp shipped in time. Don't have an underquilt. Hoping I can make a sleeping bag work.

I'm really tossing around the 20-degree v. 0-degree incubator. I really want them to pack down small. I've got a sythetic "Jarbridge" now that's only 3/4 length, but still is pretty large when packed.

I want to try and get my entire hammock setup in one side of a ortleib dry saddlebag.




How small do your top quilt and bottom quilt pack down? (I'm assuming you've also got the 0 degree burrow?)

Booni, I stuffed them and took a pic with a 32-ounce Nalgene for size comparison. The 0-degree Incubator underquilt is on the left. The 0-degree Burrow topquilt is on the right. I don't use a compression sack for my quilts, just the stuff sacks. A buddy of mine compresses his quilts and gets them down to about half again the size of my bigger stuffsack.


Hope this helps,
Chris

I'm getting all my stuff ready for the RDV too. I can pack an entire shelter system (2 hammocks, rain fly, bug net, under quilt, and straps) in a bag the size of my tent body alone. I think it's going to work nicely.

Now to go hose everything now in Nikwax. The hell if I'm having a leaky Superfly this year when it shit pours on us.
