    Why do so many people use a Tarp/Hammock setup instead of a normal Tent/Sleeping bag?

    I'm new to the whole bushcraft thing and all I seem to hear about are tarps and hammocks and not very much on tents.. Why do so many people perfer hammocks? Is it purely to do with the whole 'not sleeping on the floor' thing? If so it doesn't bother me, I've spent a few nights on a...

    Cheap Hammocking

    I've got forty quid left over from Christmas... I want to get some kit for hammocking I've seen a lot of recommendations for DD hammocks because of their cheapness and relatively good quality. So should I buy a camping hammock, cheap tarp and some paracord or should I save up for some better...

    Underblanket and Quilt Minimum Temperature?

    What's the coldest that anyone has used their underblanket and quilt combo down to? I've used mine to about -8 / -10, but as it's likely to get a fair bit colder than that in Sweden I might have to resort to ground dwelling. I tend to sleep quite warm, and I also wear my clothes to sleep in...

    Hammock Question

    I keep flirting with the idea of a hammock. But just not sure how comfy they are, and it's a lot of money to spend on just finding out. Now, one of things I don't like about the look of a hammock is how it seems to wrap up along the sides too tightly,making the enclosed look like a fly in a...

    DD Camping Hammock

    I received my first hammock this week, a DD camping hammock. Both ends have a length of webbing through the channel, obviously giving me two loose ends at each end. How do i use this? Do i pull it almost all the way through and tie the short end to the long (i.e. make a loop out of the short...

    Hammock Advice

    Mmm...I keep thinking about getting a hammock. To be specific, one of the DD Travel Hammocks. There are two things I'd like to know, though. Fistly, the weight capacity. A friend has one and I always think they look quite delicate. He has said I could try it, but I'm scared of getting in it...

    Hennesy Hammock mods ?

    Has anyone in the UK had their HH modded. What i mean by modded is the entry slit stitched up and zips added to the mozzy net so you can roll it up when not in use ? I know from the hammock forums site that there is a place in the US that does these mods, but was wondering if there is...
