Cure for the common cold butt

Cure for the common cold butt

 “Cold Butt Syndrome” happens when you lay in a hammock with only a sleeping bag. Even a very warm sleeping bag gets crushed under your back, legs, shoulder and butt, making it impossible to stay warm. Pads are one option, but they slide around, add bulk, and don’t usually keep shoulders warm. And who wants to inflate those after a long day on the trail? Under quilts are another option, but most add setup complexity, tend to slide off and may result in cold drafts. 

So what is the perfect solution for Cold Butt Syndrome?

What Customers Are Saying

"The [Superior] hammock is fantastic! I took it on a 6 day backpacking trip through the high Sierra where it was getting into the mid-20's at night and it was warm and cozy! I was with two friends who shared a tent...needless to say, I slept really well and they did not! They were intrigued by the hammock and were very jealous that I was floating on a bed of down while they had to sleep on the rocks."

"The material is so much softer than my other hammocks and that made it much nicer to lay in, and at the same time it was not too slippery or stuffy. The fabric breathed nicely and I didn't have any issues with it being sticky or clingy. The insulation is great too..The Strap System is something that really impressed me- the custom aluminum buckles made the attachment system super lightweight, and they were quite intuitive to use, making setup really quick and easy. Not to mention, the buckles are pretty stylish, making the whole setup look rad."

"I really like the products you are offering. In my opinion, they have made hammock camping more accessible and enjoyable. The Universal Comforter is amazing. The fact it can attached to the bottom of the Superior Hammock and make a winter rated hammock, or attached to the top to create a multi-season pod system that allows for an uncompromised diagonal lay, or simply used as a stand alone top quilt is amazing and there is nothing on the market as versatile or as reasonably priced."

Highly recommend the Daylite hammock, was exactly the item I needed for the end of a long day of hiking. You will not find a lighter, better made hammock anywhere.
