    New hammocker from North Carllolina! Looking for advice on setup

    Hey everyone, just got into backpacking this year and just realized how comfy and convenient hammocking can be. Got some items in my cart right now at warbonnent and I'm about to pull the trigger. Does this sounds like a good setup?

    BB XLC 40D(w/ 15 ft becket straps for lightweight versatility)

    Minifly 20d sipoly(mostly fair weather use, hoping the occasional rainstorm will not get my UQ wet as I don't plan on using a UQP)

    10 Wooki UQ 10D(i mostly do 3 season camping but would also like to winter camp. In spring and fall it can also get quite cold in the mountains, planning on suspending the UQ at the end a few inches during warm nights to vent)

    Thanks for any input!

    Sounds perfect but don't forget the top quilt.

    I have a 30 marmot sleeping bag that I was planning on using for now. Planning on ordering a winter TQ later in the year.

    I have a 10 degree UQ that I used year round, too. Venting works well, and I never felt too warm. The mid 70's or higher seems to be the spot where I can sleep without it. After you enjoy these purchases for a season, you will want to look at Simply Light Design's TrailWinder insulated UQ. Be careful.... the rabbit hole is deep.
    Happy Hangin'
