    I just wrote on my blog about hammock insulation (just started hammock-camping this year). I noticed insulated hammocks, but I didn’t know that they are alredy for sale. Thanks for this hint!

    Hi, just wanted to give a heads up about another similar product, the Tarseer. Made in Finland it has some design features that are different from a standard hammock setup. Personally I prefer the “normal” modularity of having separate hammock, tarp and insulation “building blocks” but it´s fun to see creative solutions.

      I like the analogy of building blocks. Yes, I agree with you that having the components separate provide a lot of modularity and personalization.

      Thanks for the link. I am familiar with MadTree and we’ve tried to set up a review but it hasn’t worked out yet.

      I’m familiar with the Tarseer too. The Sheltowee looks to be a hammock first, not a suspended sleeping bag which looks even less modular. I wouldn’t call the two similar.

      • Derek says:

        I agree. They are two different concepts with similar goals. The Tarseer also takes a different take on the hammock motif with a different style of hang. I would call it a hybrid hammock, but the “suspended sleeping bag” is a good visual.

    I’m looking for an indoor-only hammock, and we keep our heat off at night year-round, so this one sounds good, but is it possible that it might be too warm in the summer? If so, at what temperature? I don’t want to buy two hammocks.

    • Derek says:

      Sheltowee sells hammocks with different temperature ratings. If you just want it for inside, consider getting a hammock rated to 50°F or so. Contact them and see if they make something to suit your needs.
