A few pictures of my hammock hangin in the woods

just a quick hang and run overnight with a handful of people at Fahnestock State park in NY.
My Dutch Chameleon hammock with Hammock Gear short 10 degree premium burrow under quilt and a Hammock Gear DCF standard tarp (no doors). I also used my EE 20 degree Enigma top quilt. Packed all in my Gossamer Gear Kumo. Temps went to 15 degrees overnight and I was cozy, never had a clue it was cold out!!Dec 3, 2019 at 5:37 pm #3621344Jenny ABPL Member

Nice setup. Nothing better than knowing it’s cold out but being snug and warm despite it.Dec 3, 2019 at 10:54 pm #3621375obx hikerBPL Member
So what did you use for your lower legs/feet with the short underquilt? I got cold feet in much warmer temps in a very warm nunatak alpine footbox using a very warm Locolibre 3/4 underquilt until I pulled the 1/2″ plastazote backpad out of my pack. That solved it. What’s your approach?Dec 3, 2019 at 11:52 pm #3621378
Honestly, my feet were pretty much protected by my under quilt. I am 5 ft 10.. The under quilt is a premium incubator.. size small..Up to 5 ft 7. My head does not get protected, but it’s fine. I also put my small airflow sit lite pad from Gossamer Gear under my feet.. though it was not needed but I had it with my kumo, so figured I may as well use it. This will be my third year of winter camping in my hammock and so far it works.
I will say, when the temperature drops to O degrees or below, I use my O degree under quilt, and that one is a regular length!!Dec 3, 2019 at 11:53 pm #3621379
Yes Jenny A.. That’s for sure!! Thanks😁😁😁Dec 14, 2019 at 12:19 pm #3622824Hoosier TBPL Member
Very nice! I love winter camping, and even more so in a hammock. This was a 5 degree night and we got some snow. One of the most serene nights I’ve ever had outside.Dec 14, 2019 at 4:21 pm #3622842
Awesome @ Hoosier T. Nice picture of you in your hammock with some snow in background!! Gotta love it!
