18758Re: [Hammock Camping] Is there room to store my backpack inside with me?
- Feb 9, 2008Hi Adam,
I have a Hennessey Backpacker utralight a-sym--slightly smaller than the
Explorer. I'm 5'3", but about your weight. I've learned that I really
don't like to have anything else in the hammock with me. Sometimes,
even the quilt is a hassle (which is why I almost immediately went for
an underquilt). Things hooked on the ridgeline tend to slide down and
bonk me on the head (and yes, I do know about and use the loops on the
ends of the ridge lines).
I also had one case where I had something hooked to my ridgeline with
webbing. This created enough of an opening in the velcro to let in a
large cricket. Let me tell you, I really do not have enough room inside
my hammock for a cricket!
As for knowing when something touches your hammock? You will definitely
feel the slightest thing: acorns falling, birds landing and taking off,
people tripping over your fly lines.
