It's cold outside - and with it the kind of outdoor adventures we experience are changing. Chilling in the hammock for hours? It works, but it's not for everyone. With a few tricks and tweaks it will still be a relaxed experience. We'll tell you how. And if you don't feel like going on outdoor adventures in autumn, we'll tell you how best to let HANG, DÄCKE and Co. spend the winter.

Casual outdoor adventures in autumn despite the frosty temperatures

Our feel-good temperature in the HANG is around 20 degrees. Unfortunately, we are currently quite a long way from that. What to do? Chilling in the hammock still works! Depending on how hardy you are, of course. Sure, you can actively harden yourself and take cold showers more often. But let's be honest: is that nice? Is not it! 🥶

Instead, just remember mom's advice from before and DRESS WARMLY. Singlet, t-shirt, sweater, jacket, scarf. It is important that you put on several layers. The air between the layers provides additional insulation and ensures that not so much body heat is lost. This also has the advantage that you can put on or take off any layer if it gets too warm.

Waterproof shoes are also a must! Or you can waterproof your favorite shoes (don't forget to refresh them regularly). Tested for you: With warm, dry feet, even rain and permanent gray are easier to endure.

Second tip for experiencing beautiful autumnal adventures in the HÄNG: Warm drinks. Maybe not mulled wine 😉 because alcohol widens the blood vessels and you lose more heat as a result. So it's better to switch to hot tea or cocoa. Tastes just as delicious and keeps you warm on the inside. Another advantage: You can warm your hands on it. Pro tip: thermos flask under the DÄCKE = camping heater for free. 

For anyone who wants to chill in the HÄNG for a longer period of time, even when the temperature is below zero, we definitely recommend an underquilt. This is a kind of sleeping bag for the hammock that you stretch underneath. It provides additional insulation and also keeps icy winds off your bum. And to make it nice and cuddly from above, we always use ours anyway TIRE with. It keeps you just as warm as a sleeping bag. And it can also be transformed into an underquilt in a few simple steps - like this:

By the way: The TIRE is DWR coated. Moisture doesn't stand a chance. And if the HÄNG gets a bit of rain, it dries again in a flash at home. Without a tumble dryer.

Make outdoor equipment winter-proof: you should pay attention to this

Don't feel like enjoying the golden autumn at HÄNG? 🍂🍁 It's okay as well. In that case, you can simply send your outdoor equipment to hibernation in a dry place.

Very important: Check beforehand that everything is really dry. Nothing is more annoying than being surprised by mold stains in spring. If in doubt, you can HANG air it through overnight beforehand to be on the safe side. Then just stow it in the stuff sack and off you go.

The TIRE best to take them out of their stuff sack and fold them up loosely, or pack them in a large pillowcase.
