    Well after my last trip I decided to make a few changes and the most important one was that my 'Bivi's' just weren't up to the challenge, I've had them since 1990 and they were seriously tired... Not to mention that my First Aid Kit needed to be upgraded, after what happened the last time... I...

    After spending most of my spare time and even more of my 'non spare time' (??) on here I decided to go outside, after all... Is that what we are all here for in the first place? First stop (after the bank) was the local surplus store... Where, yet again, they managed to prise me out of 140+...

    I believe tarps and hammocks are more versatile than a tent but I was wondering others opinions. Like in summer I know it's fine, but in bad weather like Raina DNA snow etc what do you guys think? I'm also debating what color tarp to buy and what the color advantages would be. Like if I had...

    Managed to have a little overnighter over the Chrissy break. It wasnt nearly as much time as i was planning, but with a young family i'll take what i can get. Me and a mate (lets call him J) decided we'd take a quick canoe trip down the Pallinup River which is about an hours drive east of...

    I bought a doublenest hammock a few months back, and am now looking for a bug net to go with it. I am aware that ENO makes tarps and bug nets to go with their hammocks (I have an ENO tarp in my cart on amazon) but it is around $60.00. I would rather NOT spend another $50.00ish on a bug net, so i...

    Its simple choose one or the other in the Poll then explain why below. Granted there are many other options aside from tents so I will add "Other" to the list as well. For me I chose hammock because I like the versatility of it. I tend to backpack in the mountains more than flat-lands so a...

    I've set aside 500 bucks for a hammock, finally. I've been doing some research, and it looks like I'm gonna settle for the clark jungle hammock. Does anybody have any gripes about these things? Their website claims that the four season "insulating pocket system" of the NX-250 eliminates the...

    i have started to look into hammock tents, as the terrain i am in certainly merits this type of cover. how many utilize these and are they worth the money. also how are they compared to a standard tent setup?

    Has anyone tried a Hennessy Hammock? They are kinda pricey at $120+ - but sometimes you get what you pay for. I am looking at buying a parachute hammock next weekend like what San Antonio posted about at this link. The parachute hammock is $20 compared to $120 for a Hennessy Hammock. My...
