Default Hammocks

Anyone else rocking one these days?

I had a HH Exlporer Asym Deluxe but hated so much I never tried hammocks again for almost 8 years. Now I'm back into hammocks again but this time with a mixture of hammock gear from La Siesta, ENO, Dutchware, Arrowhead, Kelty, and DIY stuff. That you can mix and match hanging equipment inexpensively is partly why I decided to give Hammocks another go.

I recently started using an HH Explorer Asym and have been sleeping great. My only trouble is getting my blue foam sleeping pad in the right spot. I've noticed that HH sells a sleeping pad though that clips in to the hammock, which keeps it in place, and I'll likely be picking one of those up. Also I use a quilt style sleeping bag, which I think fits the hammock sleeping style a lot better.

Try using an underquilt rather than a pad although it may be a bit problematic using one if your HH is bottom entry.

Underquilts are the best. Love my Hammock Gear UQ. Keeps me toasty warm and does not make me sweat like the pads did. If my feet get chilly I just toss a small sit pad under them.

The new HH have optional side zippers now, mine does and I love it.

By the way, any local hikes (within 3hr drive of lower mainland) that is hammock friendly?

I've done a bit of hammocking, though back to tent for backpacking right now due to lower gear weights when with a partner, and a few trails that aren't necessarily hammock friendly. But I've hammocked on multiple trips visiting relatives, and find the hammock more comfortable than the guest beds, not to mention I end up able to sleep in a lot longer.

Anything above the treeline isn't going to be great hammock country but stuff like Lindeman/Greendrop Lake trail or Golden Ears with a hang at Alder Flats campsite would work. Cheakamous Lake would also work well for Hammocks. I think Garbibaldi Lake orTaylor Meadows might work. Strike Like in Manning and Skagit river Trail are good for hammocking. The lower Stein would be ok for hammocks.
