  • Re: vapor barriers, I agree with the earlier posts. Here's my story. One night on the Foothills trail I slept in silkweight thermals, a fleece jacket, and my waterproof breathable rain jacket. My fleece was damp in the morning. The next night in similar conditions, I moved the fleece to the outside...silkweights, rain jacket, then fleece. I was much warmer that night and the fleece...

I made one with the 3 oz can and another with the Red Bull can. Just to see how it would work being that light. It boiled but it's pretty flimsy. Jeff

From the link Ralph posted. http://jwbasecamp.com/Articles/SuperCat/index.html That 4 min was with tap water, so barely under room temp, and was in my garage with no wind. Still...just over 4 min is a good time. I usually carry the JetBoil when I hike, though. I like that I can cook from...

  • Hey y'all - it's been a while since I've had time to check all the forums I used to have so much fun on, but the holidays have given some time to drop in on a few of them. This list really started me into hammock camping, so it's great to see many of the same names still posting! Glad to see the good ideas are still flowing! I also took some time to finally update my website a bit...

  • This thread motivated me to make my first cat stove. I made one from a steel 3oz can I had in the cabinet and a Red Bull can. Boiled 16 oz water in just over 4 min...probably the fastest I've ever had with an alcohol stove. I like that I don't need a pot stand with it...this may replace my JetBoil on some hikes. Maybe... :D Jeff

Then you'll surely want a larger tarp than the one that comes standard with the HH. There are several option available...Speer has an 8'x10' and an 11'x10' Winter Tarp, JRB has an 11'x10', and MacCat has a few models you may be interested in...

  • Here's a hammock tent with a built-in stove jack for a TiGoat woodburning stove. I think he's been to -40F in this one. http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/showthread.php? t=2244&highlight=stove+jack And here's Grizz's DIY tarptent for his bridge hammock. http://www.hammockforums.net/gallery/showimage.php? i=2494&catid=searchresults&searchid=11334 Here's a hammock with insulation...

I wonder how long Risk has been using his down hammock. I've only got a handful of nights in my insulated models so they're probably not good test cases. I think it depends on the construction, though...I haven't had...

  • I'm not sure elastic needs to run all the way across the underquilt. I've thought about putting a ~12" piece of lightweight elastic to the top layer of my JRB Nest. Just stitching it right to the outer piece of the black fabric right about where my knees are, since that's really the only place I've had problems. I think that's all it would take, at least for that design. One plan...
