Exped Scout Hammock Combi | Backcountry Edge

As far as one-person shelters go this is not the lightest, but if you are planning on spending a lot of time camping in forested areas or where you need to sleep above the ground then it's as good as, or even better than, anything else I have tried. The addition of some lightweight pegs would have been nice. Aside from long term wear and tear on the suspension system and being careful with the zip I can't foresee there being much to go wrong with the Exped Scout Hammock Combi. It keeps the rain off, keeps the mosquitos (and midges) away and deals with the insulation problem. The main drawback is having to find suitable trees from which to hang it. In the treeless hills of Britian this is likely to be a major headache a lot of the time, and as such it's more suited to a lowland woodland context than to hillwalking.

We started using hammocks for Scout camps here in UK a couple of years ago. It really took off, first making their own simple hammocks / bivi systems learning all the skills you describe (and failing is important!). Then lately we invested in DD scout hammocks and tarps. Loads better then tents! Although tents still have a place in some situations
