MY 1st set up and why!
Ok folks i pulled the trigger and my first basic set up is on its way should have everything by my next days off! this is what i bought and why
Snugpak jungle hammock $57 (outdoor bunker on amazon)
400lb rating and with bug net and suspension 20 oz. also with this i can afford to play and mod with and not out alot if somehow If it rips and runs on me :D
DD Hammocks 3m x3m tarp with 15' of 6mm line and snakeskins $92 ( $68-tarp $10-line $14-snakeskins)
wanted something more than a walmart and something lighter than a kelty or guide gear, I also thought this should last for at least one full year and well into winter, so thinking is here more mods to ridgline guy lines not the tarp.
Tarp snakeskins $16 from nkoutdoors ( hey its charity ) and because i thought it would be nice and i cant stop myself!
so total for first set up so far( yes i said so far) $165
with all that being said i have posted another thread in the suspension section some more questions if you can please check it out:confused: lol
looking forward to probably a sb 1.9 for winter and maybe a bigger lighter oes tarp..and yes and ug and tq well what about a gear hammock......lol
will post pics and reviews ( a noobs review)!
A good start... welcome to never waking up with a sore back!
Now get out and hang someplace close to home (I've hung more in my back yard than on the trail!) Be sure to take some pics and let us know how it works out!
I think Ive hung more in my living room than in the backyard, or out on the trail. Welcome aboard mountainhanger. Ill look forward to your upcoming review.

here it is everyone. I should write up a review, but feel like such a noob dontknow if i will besides, mostof it is in this video. I will say that it did hold me even pushing the limit, and while i look alot like a turtle on it's back i am sure i am gonna get the hang of this. I will say this it is definetly like no other way to lay :laugh: I am new to this backpacking and bought a tent right off. When i started watching Shug:D i started thinking and am glad I did. cant wait to use it officially when i go to Charles Deam Wilderness when my son graduates in May!
So Enjoy the video, Be patient with its quality, and really any and all suggestions would be appreciated as my head is swimming in the possibilities..
