ZPacks (Made by Goose Feet) hood is excellent.
I've used it several times in conjunction with both quilts and jackets. 1.3oz, 900FP, Pertex Quantum. I used shock cord through the loops on front and back and under my arms to secure it ...

Integrate hammock and pad with snaps?
Has anybody tried adding a few good snaps to their hammock and underquilt and using that to attach them to each other directly? It seems like that could be both lighter and more reliable than the s...
