    That's a sweet setup. Slingfin has something similar to it and I'm looking at, but it's not available at the moment. I talked to them and was told their waiting for the Fly. Also the offer a sweet discount for veterans to boot.

    This was the setup for my recent 3+ week tour of UT and CO. I prefer to sleep in a hammock but out west there are many places without suitable trees and hanging is frowned in many state and national parks. So I travel with a bit of non overlapping redundancy. Tent and sleeping pad for when i need to go to the ground and hammock, underquilt and tarp for a very comfortable hang. In Telluride a couple of weeks ago I was comfortable down to 28 degrees in the hammock. I find I get colder (and less comfortable) in the tent.

    So are you keeping both the tent and hammock sets with you for when you have to go to ground?

    I take both when going solo... 2up with 2 mats, bags, 2 chairs, 2 fishing rods, clothes for 2 etc and I still take the tarp.. So when solo, I have lots of room to add the hammock.
    The quilts can double for the hammock or tent sleeping.

    I bring a hammock with no frills when I solo to nap in. I sleep on the ground in a tent. The Hammock itself weighs about 2 lbs and rolls up the size of a soda can
