learn to brave the elements of cold weather hammock camping

I used to think cold weather hammock setups were bulkier than a tent and sleeping bag but it’s not as bad as you think, especially if you go the under quilt route instead of a foam pad.

Speer PolarPod | Best Cold Weather Hammock

F.O.B (Forward Operating Bivy) in olive drab. Fully enclosed with ripstop nylon. A 2 way zippered door and window allow more ventilation when open or trap heat on a cold night. An inside bed liner holds a closed cell foam pad for added insulation. Full length side pockets provide storage for clothing and gear and add insulation during cold weather hammock camping.

I sleep year round in a hammock, even in 30 degree weather. The trick to cold weather hammock camping is insulating you’re back from the cold air. When you rig 2 hammocks together, not only get a little extra support, but you can use the bottom layer hammock for an insulation layer. On this trip, I used a full windshield visor and my hunting camo outer shell (jacket and pants) as my insulation later. I am also sleeping in a SlumberJack 30 degree mummy sleeping bag. The temperature dipped down to 29 degrees Friday night, and 37 degrees Saturday night… staying warm was not a problem. However getting out of the warm sleeping bag early am was tough.
