    Default hammock warmth idea

    i am a devoted hennessey user. i was thinking of using a big agnes horse thief with an under quilt, maybe the 'nest' for my thru-hike attempt. does anyone have any suggestions?

    If you haven't bought a quilt yet, look at the Jacks 'R Better quilt.

    Default Hennessy Hammock

    I'm tentatively planning on an early northbound start, either late February or early March. How practical/impractical would the Hennessy Supershelter be for the weather I'll be encountering at that time.

    Yeah, I know it'll be cold. I live in Millinocket, Maine - at the north end of the trail, so I know cold - but I haven't used a Hennessy and I haven't hiked the southern or middle portions of the trail yet.

    Default Tent, then tarp

    Hi Magic City. I'll be starting late February this year. I've decided to go with my SD Lightyear tent for the cold months, and switch to my Hennessy Hammock at Mt. Rogers.
