    Sounds like a slippery slope! Based on my sewing skills though, I wouldn't trust my gear not to fail! But that gives me some ideas to work up to! Thanks.

    Great thread! My kids love camping in a hammock. I go with the cheaper ones for them though, lol.

    My lab carries his food as well as a chuckit travel mat when it's cold. When he was a puppy I would use a long tether and put the mat under my foot end. He never wandered so now he just sleeps where I put the pad which is near the foot end under whatever tarp setup I may have. As for the kids, there are options like the Vertex which you might consider as well, especially if you go out with them often. BizzyBee

    That Chuckit mat is pretty bulky, how do you attach it to the dog's harness/pack so that it stays put and doesn't end up lopsided the whole way. It would sure help my ultralight aspirations to get that out of my pack.

    On a short trip it's food in one side of the pack and chuckit mashed into the other side. If we need both sides for food then we roll or fold it and stick it through the handle on the harness. He loves it...we have to pack his pack in the garage because he starts dancing around the house as soon as he sees it! I like that it works the same is a human pad providing insulation from the ground. He does fine even on snow with it provided the temp is not too cold or windy. In those conditions he is with one of us.
