hammock bottoms is important. This would allow the use of varying
thicknesses of insulation.
I am having good luck and little hassle with a 6'x8.5' tarp with loops
at the corners and a drawstring at the foot end. I can connect it
within a minute to either a Hennessey or a Speer. (just keep the
attachment lines on the hammock body) The footend draw string is used
to take up the slack in between.
For my annual AT section hike starting this afternoon, I have decided
to use the Speer Hammock with the 8x10 tarp, the Garlington Insulator,
and wrap the hammock body & GI shell with snakeskins.
