    Hammocks?

    How many of you have used a Hammock in the backcountry? My wife will use hers on my scouting trips, she will stay at camp and read when I am out glassing. If you have some pictures, they would be great!

    I do. Hammocks have their strengths and weaknesses. Major points are that you have to have some knowledge and gear to keep warm, plus side is they are extremely comfortable.

    I've got my eye on one with a Kelty tarp. My draw back will be trees. We have mostly junipers where I hunt.

    I used a hammock a lot last year. I plan to use it more this year. I want to drop some weight with a cuben tarp and EE quilts (under and over).

    I have a couple Hennessy hammocks. Very comfortable. Only draw back is I get cold without having a pad underneath me. I think quilts below and on top would be a good solution. Super comfortable
