Re: Lightweight hammock........

The stoves we are talking about are wood burning stoves -not gas.

You can look at them on titaniumgoat.com and kifaru -three dogs stoves are just a few small wood burning stoves.
If you have wood available -they are nice.

I bet the alps are beautiful -i'd like to hunt tahr someday..
Best of luck -Mike

Re: Lightweight hammock........

Hammocks do work in the cold. In the winter, pre-wolves, I used a hammock, winter bivy sack, space blancket and down bag. I put the space blanket under my bag inside the bivy sack. Now, with the wolves, my dogs can't just sleep on the snow, so I've been sleeping in a snow cave. Mtn. Hardwares Kiva or Black Diamonds Mega Mid is the way to go without carrying a tent.

Re: Lightweight hammock........

I'd rather sleep on the snow or sand than a hammock. And I don't really like either snow or sand. Just not for me - comfort wise. In addition if I'm on the ground, I don't have to worry about a bear reaching up and taking a bite out of my ***** in the middle of the night.

Re: Lightweight hammock........

I can almost gaurantee that you'll be able to hunt harder the next day if you can use a wood stove in your tent the night before to warm up in, dry off and cook dinner on. There's plenty of ventilation in a floorless tent or 'floating floor' design as in the link below. The CO goes up the chimney. I've spent many years mountaineering and own a couple of pretty hardcore expedition mountaineering tents. But for hunting in cold weather, if there's a burnable fuel supply, I'll take a woodstove heated tent over the hardcore expedition mountaineering tent any day!

Tents for backpacking...
