seeking hammock technique info on 02/01/2010 17:45:39 MST Print View

I've been wanting to try a hammock for a couple of years. This Spring I am going for it.

My hammock gear list so far:
ULTRALITE BACKPACKER A-SYM
No Sniveller quilt

Please point me to good hammock tip forums/discussions?

George,

hammockforums.net seems to be the definitive forum for hammocks. Lots of info there.
Regards,

I'll add this one for general technique: http://www.tothewoods.net/HammockCamping.html.

And here's the site of the Blackbird, one of the most popular hammocks out there right now: http://warbonnetoutdoors.com/blackbirds.php.

All of my hammock gear is from Warbonnet. I have the Blackbird, tarp, underquilt, and overquilt. He makes great stuff.

If you are taller than 5'6" the ULBA might be a tad claustrophobic. It works, but I had to move on to something else, and rather than getting a larger/heavier Hennessy I ended up with the Blackbird.

I also contemplated a bridge hammock. There's a lot more out there than Hennessy - you might find something else will suit you better, it's worth checking out the threads at HF to see what others say.
