    I've used the Big Agnes seed house SL1. 2 pounds 9 oz fully packed or 2 pounds with just fly, poles, and foot print. Decently priced and well made.

    A hammock with a down underquilt and rainfly is nice if you have something to hang from, super comfortable, quick and easy to set up/tear down. They have their pros and cons, but they do have a place in your camping arsenal and once you learn to lay in them they are super comfortable, much so more than any sleeping pad I have tried.

    Here is a hang I did in AL on a spring turkey hunt.

    got a question drew a second season mule deer tag in area 34 in Colorado .this will be our first backcountry hunt(we have back country camped before just not that late in the year)we have hammocks now.but due to the time of year would have to buy under quilts and top quilts.been thinking about getting a tipi and a stove.
    the hammocks would be more comfortable to sleep in than on the ground but the heat from the stove and also being able to dry clothing with it has me leaning more twords the tipi.

    Only thinkg about hammocking is to have trees to hang in, so make sure of that.

    I only have a underquilt and sleep in below freezing temps with a 20 degree bag.

    I would like to have a tipi with a stove myself, my hunting buddy has mentioned getting one so hopefully he will! I just cannot spend the money on one right now.

    No telling what the weather will be like then. I think it is always better to err on the side of caution and be ready for winter conditions. A tipi with a stove sounds real cozy if it storms.

    I've been running a surplus Gore-Tex bivy. I roll my sleeping bag up in it while I'm on the move and it keeps everything dry. Put a sleeping pad inside with your sleeping bag when you make camp to keep from sliding off in the middle of the night. A good, light weight syl-nylon tarp like a Noah's Tarp to keep the rain/snow off and you've got a light weight, packable, compressible camp that is easy to set up. If you don't have trees for the tarp, trekking poles work or pick up a couple of limbs to use for hiking until you make a camp. This is also a very economical set up.

    I use either a small floorless 1/2 man shelter that is stove capable, or a hammock most of the time. For buggy and hot weather hammocks are tough to beat.
