Being Headquartered here in Northern Utah, we have quite the business backdrop to take advantage of on a daily basis. Green Armadillo's backyard is a 14,000+ ft. giant and it's only a quick 15 minute drive to mouth of four different canyons that lead into world class outdoor venues like Snowbird, Park City, and Alta. And although it's hard to think of a location that would suit the outdoor enthusiast's cup of tea better, I still have a bucket list of other areas out there, waiting for me right here in our own good old' US of A. One of those places is the Appalachian mountains. Ranging from Eastern Canada all the way down to nearly the Gulf coast, there's enough real estate to keep you busy in the outdoor arena for years. There are literally thousands of trails lining the range from Maine to Georgia, but the one that's got my eye, naturally, is the 150 year old Appalachian trail. Almost 2,200 miles winding through 14 states, you may need to add a few accessories to your Green Armadillo Double Hammock in order to stay alive. I'll get there someday, maybe next week. Call me, we'll plan a trip.

There have been several questions concerning insulating your Green Armadillo Backpacker Hammock. When you sleep on the ground heat gets trapped between your body and the ground. If you are sleeping in a hammock, that heat is lost because the distance between you and the ground increases therefore causing you to lose that important body heat..well here is a simple solution to fix this! The easiest way to keep your hammock insulated is to put your sleeping pad at the bottom of the hammock before you get in with your sleeping bag. We also recommend using a ultralight backpacking pillow for increased heat retention and comfort. When you do this, the heat will now be trapped between you and the sleeping pad. For those of you who just can't wait until summer to get out to the back country, this is a simple solution for you to stay toasty on those cold spring nights. As always, thanks for choosing Green Armadillo Gear for your outdoor adventures!
