Re: hammock through sleeping bag
You beat me to the punch. My eagles nest outfitters doublenest
setup comes as hammock, bug net, and rain fly separately. The idea
of slipping the sleeping bag around the hammock was something I was
going to try this spring when the mercury rose a little higher.
The hanging bug net solves the issue of annoying critters so flesh
exposure isn't an issue in summer time either.
I am curious; this forum seems to surround the Hennessey type set up
with the hammock/net integrated design. Does my set up have
problems on the trail? I can find very few reviews on the
doublenest and it is not discussed in this forum that I can find.

I have updated the instructions with that info, and the cost
estimates as well.
Eventually, I'll get some pictures in there too.
