- Jan 2, 2009Hi,
Check out one of these wood stoves from Titanium Goat. Look at the lightest version. Just over 1 pound.
If you had something like a tent around and over your hammock one of these might work.
If it was setup right you might be able to feed the stove without getting out of your hammock.

My son spent a couple of days in Maine camping out in 10 degree
weather. I asked him how he keep warm and he told me he used an
emergeny car powerstart battery assy. and plugged in his small heater
set on 500 watts and it lasted two 8 hr nights. Here's another thought,
use a winter tarp with a Zodi propane heater. Lugging around Powerstart
car batteries and Zodi heaters only adds a couple of more pounds
conpared with lugging around underquits and more padding. Each style of
camping will have different sets of parameters. The style of camping
using heaters and winter tents will only appeal to campers who pull
small sleds while snowshoeing in on flat terrain and could care less
about adding an extra couple of pounds. I think using special designed
winter hammocks is the way to go for winter hammocking rather then
modifing a 3 season hammock for winter conditions. Just my thoughts and
nothing is set in stone.
