Agnes even existed. The Neve, made by Macpac <www.macpac.co.nz>.
One night on the AT in New York State it was a warm evening as I took
advantage of my hammock, a Hennessy original, and set up camp on a
steep hillside not far from a major road. The next morning things
seemed strange, both quiet and dark. The tarp over my hammock was
covered with snow and it was still snowing. I was nice and
comfortable in my Macpac Neve with a foam mattess underneath. The
system worked beautifully.
The Neve has changed over the years, there's a lighter Pinnacle, and
I don't know how they compare with the Big Agnes bags. But the basic
design seems to work very well in a hammock. --David
