So while hammock and tent sleeping are still practical the Paria 1P bivy is also handy. What makes the 2Go and SP uncomfortable is that finding the right position so that I can zip up takes time and effort. By the time I got it completed I was sweating and that does not make for a good night's sleep in Florida.
With a nice breeze and a blanket, optional foam pad, a hammock makes for a comfortable shelter. Having the Paria bivy means sleeping on the ground is also possible if there are no trees. I like the options because there are simply times when one or the other just does not work. So sharing components makes better sense.
My system for now:
- tarp - the size depends. I think I can get away with a seamless 5x9.
- Paria bivy
- hammock with long straps
- cordage, poles and stakes
- blanket, foam insulation and pillow
- bugnet or bug sock
One system I want to try:
- tarp, poles, cordage
- blanket, pillow, some kindof mattress
