Does anyone use a hammock? Do you have a recommendation on what setup to get?

    Get the nylon straps unless you are knowledgeable with knots is my 2 cents.

    Make sure you get an underquilt or at least a sleeping pad. You lose a lot of heat through the bottom. ENO makes awesome slap straps and there are tarps/skeeter nets to help in those climates.

    Hennessy Explorer Deluxe Zip. Its a nice all in one with attached mosquito netting. There used to be a seller on ebay that will upgrade to a large tarp for free and add in snake skins. I prefer to use it with straps and carabiners vs their knot method. Wise Owl brand on amazon (similar to Eno atlas straps) have worked well.

    I would definitely recommend tree straps as the first investment, then an under quilt there is a brand called One Tigris that is actually good and priced well). Do not underestimate the importance of an under quilt in sub-70 degree temps. Just save the headache and hassle and buy it.

    From there, a bug net, and lastly, maybe a tarp, like a Kelty Noah's 12.

    My personal setup is- ENO Doublenest, ENO bug net, Kelty Noah's Tarp 12, and the aforementioned One Tigris underquilt.

    I agree! Don't jump in with both feet! It may not be for me! Only good for the zombie back sleepers! I move around way too much…..

    Never seen a hammock at a motorcycle rally. But I have spent a week in a tent during a rain storm

    For an under quilt a military woobie/poncho liner has always worked well for me and if you can find them they are usually cheap.

    Good Lord. Hammocks, campers, air conditioning. BS. A mummy bag and MAYBE a shelter half. Anymore than that you need to stay home. You're not a biker.

    Thanks to everyone for some good advice. I ordered a set up that wasn't too cheap but hopefully useable. Planning on a trip around Lake Superior second week of July. Going to do the hammock/tent this year instead of hotel room.

    Lay down on a bedroll under your warm pipes. Let the tick tick as they cool lull you to sleep.

    Make sure you get the angle of the hammock right. It makes all the difference.

    Have continuous loops on both ends, connect them to tree straps using the toggle method. Hardly any knots necessary that way.

    If you use carabiner as a toggle, you can hang your bag offs off the ground.

    A hangle (30 degree angle) and other accessories from dutchware really work and make things easier.

    Also. I would suggest an adjustable Ridgeline.
