Pin of the Week #53- Hammock Underquilt

P.O.T.W.

So this past weekend I went camping at Hemmed-In Hollow in Compton, AR. I wanted to make sure I didn’t freeze to death in the middle of the woods. I didn’t want to spend $100+  on a legit underquilt for my hammock. So what do I always do? Make it myself! :) 

Hammock Underquilt

I bought basic $20, 45 degree rated, rectangle shaped sleeping bag and machine sewed elastic loops on to it. I didn’t want to actually damage the sleeping bag because we still could use it whenever we tent camp.

I stayed pretty warm and even sweated a little bit. But I should have brought something for my face. My nose got cold. 

Hauling all that gear down into a valley wasn’t the best idea because I had to haul it back up. But I did and I have the calves to prove it. I also didn’t freeze. :)
