Any input on lawson hammock sleep system I know it has spreader bars and a zippered entrance with bug net also has a Velcro rain fly. I know I will need a underquilt. Any recommendations on that and also a sleeping pad.

One of the great factors about hammock camping (as if light weigh and ease of use were’t enough) is that you can upgrade your hammock sleep system to fit your needs. I use an REI Flash 18 Bag to organize my Ultra Light Sleep System. Add tree straps to increase weight capacity and make hanging your hammock a breeze. Replace stock carabiners with climbing rated biners. This is great if your a climber, or work with ropes while out on an adventure. Add a rainfly to stay dry. Pack a light weight fleece blanket to line the hammock or cover up with. An inflatable camping mattress like a Therm-a-Rest can be used in the hammock to buffer your tail from the wind/cold. The great thing about developing a sleep system, is that it fits your needs to a “T”… AND, even the most tricked out Ultra Light Sleep System is smaller and lighter than a tent.

    Although they are a different species, a hammock system with tarp can still be used as a bivy tent, using a ground cloth like tyvek or other item to keep the hammy from abrasion, and hiking poles or sticks for uprights on the hammock ends. A hammock bug net and tarp is suspended from the hammock ends/hiking poles set up, and the body of the hammock on the ground, use the UQ/pad inside the hammy. The site selection would be the same as a tent set up.
    This advantage of a hammock system converted to ground use (when anchor points cannot be found) is not possible in reverse using a tent to be erected into the trees or anchor points.
    The hiking experience can be utilized by any method available using your imagination in conjunction with your abilities. The hammock is similar, “utilized by any method available using your imagination in conjunction with your abilities”.
    Really like the article and respect your openminded approach to hammocks.

      I am very interested in exploring this possibility. I am planning to hike the North Carolina Mountains To Sea Trail next summer and, thanks to this article series, would like to get outfitted with a hammock sleep system. The hammock system would work well throughout most of the trip except for the Outer Banks & coastal regions where there are insufficient trees or hammocks are not allowed. Would any particular hammocks and tarps be well suited for occasional rigging as a tarp+bivy setup?
