RE: [Hammock Camping] sleeping bag
- For me, down bags are just plain warmer.
I have two that I use depending on the temps.
Normally I use a Feathered Friends Vireo and a jacket.
If it gets too cold I have Golite bag that goes to 0 F and has less down on
Either way, they are lighter and warmer than a synthetic bag or at least

I also have a HH SS, and have hiked in virtual constant rain, as well
as fallen over in a rushing creek. My bag was compressed in a 'water
resistant' stuff sack, in my pack. It has never gotten even slightly
damp. Condensation has never affected it either. Including my bike
packing, and from what I have read on various net postings, wet
sleeping bags are not very likely. You could double bag it, with the
outside bag being a new clean trash bag. Nashbar WP panniers have
never let me down.
- I would suggest putting the garbage bag on the inside. That way the
nylon stuff sack protects it from getting punctured.
There are also some ultra lightweight "dry bags" on the market from Sea
And the same thing as a whole pack liner
