Chinook Sleeping Bags
- I would like to know if anyone here has experience with the Chinook
series of light sleeping bags. I am trying to make a very light pack
in which I intend to use a hammock and the most compressible sleeping
bag that I can get within my paltry budget. The closest thing that I
can find up until this point are some of the bags made by Chinook.
Specifically the Palm, Big Knuckle and Travelite. From what I can
tell, these all pretty much compress down to the same size and are
rated for 40 to 50 degrees, which should suit my needs for summer
camping in the Southeastern US. Since these bags are approx $50, I am
somewhat concerned abut their quality and accuracy of their
temperature rating. Also, it seems that most people use sleeping pads
in their hammock and I am not sure if a lite sleeping bag alone will
be enough to keep warm in even the mildest conditions. Any input on
this would be appreciated.

Try this backpacking talk group for that discussion. You may find it
more relevant to what you are looking for.
We just had a good discussion about hammocking and bags not to long
ago. Most folks over there are tree hangers anyways.
