Im working on my setup currently. I even have a cheap one for napping in other than my hennessy, which btw offers a side zip version.

A little pricey is pretty conservative. With what Ill have in this I wouldnt be too far off from a Kifaru setup. So far as mentioned, way more comfort than a solo mountain hardware tent I have. Guys are even getting tarps with stove jacks these days.

Man every time I see this thread I think ...this is the one and ONLY thing in my life I was doing before 99% of the population. I love my Hennessy and the technology has come a long way. Sleeping in a hammock and the comfort is what pushed me over the edge to move to saddle hunting. And 'my watch has begun' on the Tethrd wait list.

NOTHING like sleeping in a hammock ...in the wilderness!

I bought an ENO one link system and the ENO Ember 2 underquilt for my boundary waters trip this year. We went in the middle of May and the overnight temp dropped to 38 degrees on a couple nights and low 40's the rest of the time, it also rained one night.I had a 40 degree sleeping bag and a thin fleece liner. I never was cold and never wet. It took my some minor adjustments over the trip to get it set up so I didnt slide down to my foot end . Once I figured out high high my foot end needed to be compared to my head end I stopped sliding down the hammock. Sure beat sleeping on the ground. I really enjoyed my first site in the morning being a sunrise over a lake.
God gave us 2 ears and 1 mouth. That means we should listen twice as much as we talk.
