After seeing a few comments about people using hammocks while out bushcrafting I though I would share my hammock set up that Im using this winter.

A few pounds isn't bad but that has to take up some room eh? Sure looks comfy though....

Not as bad as may be though. All its all 850+ quality down in and the the rest is lightweights nylons which all compress pretty good. The summer set up is the best of course for size! :D

what a great set up, congrats mate. One question what sort of body weight range can it support?

Just wondering what make/model your hammock is?
I'm assuming that if it's from Warbonnet it's one of the 'Blackbird' range???

Very nice setup. I'm a newbie on this forum. As a hammock camper myself I can vouch for the comfort a hammy offers over tenting.

My latest setup is a Hammock Bliss skybed with a cheapy Escape long hiker self-inflating mat from Rays Outdoors. Suspension is straps and buckles. In very cold weather I suspend a TeWa 3/4 down underquilt (20deg F). Black Wolf Micron 250 SB on top as a quilt, which makes it a cozy get-away. If I need it, my termolite reactor SB liner added to the kit can take me down to as low as it gets in southern Aus. My tarp is a DD 3x3, which is big enough for a nice roomy porch pitch in bad weather, and can make a nice roomy tarp-tent if it's blowing a gale and going to ground is the best option.

I'll take some pics on my next trip and post them here as a comparison.
