Re: UL under insulation
What hammock weighs nearly two pounds that you're taking backpacking? In any case, I've tucked items under my legs, including my pack. This is a good combination with a short length unde...

Re: Re: Ultralight HOT Summer Quilt Material
I can't seem to find any that are less than a pound, all closer to 1.5 which is a 3-season bag weight for me. However, it looks pretty similar to my current ideas: - A thin cotton sheet trim...
