Works great,
    Great now we got the wheels turning..........Almost like a bishop bag but for the whole shebang? Anyhow I like the thought of that. One bag instead of like 2 or three and compression so you can get the little bastich small enough to pack around.......

    Might have some experimenting to do......

    Thanks.

    I found a cheap compression socks that was about the same diameter as inside of my backpack, this allows me to compress it only as much as I need to carry my load. If I'm just going out for the night I can pretty much just leave it loose in my backpack and pack things around it. If it's going to be winter time with lots of cold weather gear or multiple day with lots of food, I can compress it down more without it bulging into my back too bad. And it make set up and take down super fast.
    By all means, let's argue about whether or not a hammock will hurt a tree. All the while ignoring the fact that there is an island of garbage the size of Texas floating in the Pacific ocean. Or how about the fact that over 75% of the world's nuclear reactors are leaking...

    Wait a second... there's a hammock, two quilts and a pillow in that tube? No way.

    You have my attention.

    I need to see a video of how you get the sleeve over lofted quilts, hammocks and suspensions.. I am visualizing a wrestling match.

    It's not as hard as you would think as long as it's down, you just squeeze the quilts to get the air out as you work the sleeves over them. But it does take a little work, that's the main reason I switched over to just a bungee cord and then stuff the whole Marianne into a bishop bag. That and when it's in a sleeve it's just solid enough to kind of be a pain to pack up, a long firm snake that you got to coil into your backpack without having bulges. I found it all being in one compression sack just rides better in my pack.
