It couldn’t be simpler, yet more effective. The Lawson quilt is a multi-layered textile filled with super hi tech microfibre. I could not wait to test it.
We had a lot of snow lately and the tops were around -5 to -10 at night. I had very nice sunshine during the day while I walked to a nice spot I know right by a lake.
The pitching of the hammock went quick as ever and attaching the quilt to it is a breeze. Just attach it to the bars of the Lawson Blue Ridge hammock. I tested the hammock without a sleeping bag frist to see what difference the quilt makes. And what a difference it made. The microfibre filling is super effective. It could immediately feel it reflecting my body heat.
During the afternoon the air got more humid and the wind started blowing. Not problem at all. I stayed cozy in warm.
The quilt packs relatively small and is pretty light. The whole set with hammock, quilt and rope weighs around 2,4 kg / 5pounds, which for a backpacker is on the little heavier side, but it is worth the effort to carry this extra weight. However, winter touring is often with skis or snowshoes and a pulk, a little sled for the carriage which is pulled. Using a lawson hammock with a quilt certainly makes camping in winter much more comfortable and easy.

Hammock testing Steinbruvannet close in Oslo Groruddalen on october 14. 2017.
Det var en fantastisk solrik dag, og vi hadde mye moro. Noen av de besøkende kom fordi de hadde hørt om det på facebook, men også tilfeldig passerende ble nysgjerrige og kom bort for å se nærmere på hengekøyene. Dagens ord var “fantastisk” – dette var alles kommentar da de hadde lagt seg i hengekøyene vi hadde hengt opp. Telt er en ting fra fortiden, og moderne hengekøyer som Lawson Blue Ridge og Amok Draumr er veien å gå.
Vi har salg på begge akkurat nå – benytt muligheten til å skaffe deg en (eller begge) for den spesialprisen vi tilbyr i hele oktober. Bare ring oss på +47 97123033 for å arrangere en demonstrasjon hvis du gikk glipp av arrangementet 14. oktober.
It was a wonderful sunny day and we had a lot of fun. Some of the visitors came because they had heard about it on facebook, but other hikers & strollers got interested too … word of the day was “fantastic” – this was everybody’s comment when test-lying in the hammocks we had on “display”. Tents are a thing of the past and modern hammocks like the Lawson Blue Ridge and the Amok Draumr are the way to go.
We have a sale on both right now – make sure to get one (or both) for the special price we offer throughout October. Just give us a call on +47 97123033 to arrange a demonstration should you have missed the event on October 14.
