    What a great weekend!

    Spent two nights in the woods this weekend - weather was superb.

    I was excited to find that my jungle sleeping bag is the perfect size for an under quilt on my Lawson.

    That's an interesting idea - using a hammcok as an underblanket for your...er...hammock.
    I suppose you could go and buy a dead cheapy for the purpose since it would be taking any weight.
    Did you put something sandwiched between the two hammocks?

    It wasn't actually a hammock - it was a British Army Jungle Sleeping bag, which I purchased for the sum of 15. The sleeping bag has little ties sewn in, so it was really easy to attach. I shall carry on trying this as I suspect there will be insufficient insulation as we approach autumn and winter.

    If folks are interested, I'll get some more detailed photos next time I'm out.

    Cheers,

    I used to use an xl cheap bivy bag (Gelert I think) as a pod. Cut a hole in the bottom and used a static ridge line over the hammock to keep it off me. Also quite often use a poncho liner strung under the hammock as an underblanket.
