Only Foam Works For Me
I love my Z-Lite Torso on the ground and in the hammock. I only like my Thermarest X-Therm torso pad in the hammock. Inflatables are too tall for torso pads for me unless I have an internal fram...

Tarp Sounds Good
I think I found a solution, and it's thanks to you guys. I'm going to use my MLD Ultralight Hammock Tarp for this, using the bike as a "pole" on one end and then guying out the...

How much does a bivy augment a sleeping bag?
In response to the tarp thread I've got going, but a very different question: Looks like the average low in Washington is 41 in November. Knowing myself, I would sleep 6 hours in that using ...

Maybe I'm already set...?
Oh also, not to double-post, but do you think my MLD Ultralight hammock tarp is big enough / shaped well enough to use for this?

Thinking Creatively
Ok, hmm... So tarp looks like the way to go. I am extremely on board with this. Two problems: 1. I'm home for 1-3 weeks, not 8 weeks. I can't order new from MLD. 2. No poles. ...

Fit: This bag has a superb fit that places more pressure on your lower back, which distributes weight to the hips and keeps your upper back cool. I was impressed with how well this pack vented, even w...
