Molly Mac Gear Store –> MMG Bivy Hammock
The Molly Mac Gear (MMG) bivy hammock is derived from the Mors Scarf, by Mors Kochanski. It is a hammock, a breathable bivy sack, an emergency coverall, a scarf, and more!
We thought about calling it The Western Hammock, or The Desert Hammock because you can use it as a hammock with trees, or as a bivvy sack under a tarp without trees. The last prototype was named survival hammock. With it’s public release — it is now known as the MMG Bivy Hammock.
If you know how to pitch your tarp on the ground, using hiking poles, then this hammock/bivvy will serve you well in many different types of terrain. I wish we had them in Big Bend National Park, where the Chisos Mountains offerred good places to hang, but the desert back country was completely devoid of trees.
Molly Mac Gear Shamu, Baby Orca and Jerry Chair synthetic underquilts, with silnylon outer layers, complement the MMG Bivy Hammock well in temperatures above freezing. They insulate your hammock in the air, as well as on the ground. It is no longer necessary to carry a foam pad just in case you have to go to ground.
