Episode 79: The Great Debate: Hammocks VS Tents

On this episode we put and end to the debate of which sleep system is better. Hammocks or Tents? We share what we have learned through years of backpacking and give you a huge pro tip at the end to help you stay a bit warmer if you choose a hammock. We also have a case study at which sleep system is cost effective at camp with a 32 degree night?

By the way you can always join in on the discussion our Trust The Trail Facebook Group If you want to hang out with us just go to:

What we talk about:

  • With Hammocks, insulation is the key
  • There really is no debate
  • Cost comparison when temps get cold
  • Scott fell out of a hammock one time
  • Pro Tip: refletix
  • It’s all about the lifestyle
