8969Re: hammock weight vs tent
- May 4, 2005When you get people's answers, make sure you compare apples to
apples. Mirage has given you the weight of a system that is good in
blowing rain and even blowing sleet, and is also bug proof. The
super UL guys will tend to quote stuff that is only good in certain
very specific not-too-bad situations. Ryan Jordan's photos of his
PCT hike were very illustrative as far as the level of comfort one
might expect in a tarp/poncho type setup in the rain. He is much
tougher than I am, smarter too, and better looking, so don't flame
me, please, Ryan's friends.
