    I was paying attention, just not enough!

    Yup, pull-outs would change the picture. Thing is, that hammock is a BBXLC and the pullouts are on the net, not the hammock body (and the net was AWOL.) Wouldn't have happened with the net on.

    Never could get excited about those bottom-entry HHs.

    Same here: I was paying attention as well, just not enough. I think I grabbed the opposite side Pea Pod (or UQ ) edge thinking I was grabbing the opposite side hammock edge. Both times when getting back in during the middle of the night. I did not learn my lesson first time and decided to try it again couple of years later. Worked out just the same. Ouch.

    There was a sleeping bag in the hammock keeping it spread-yeah. Broad daylight, cold sober, on my back. Nothing hurt.
    It was a dark and moonless night. i tried to make certain to get in the hammock not the UQ.I finally got out the flashlight and found the UQ inside the hammock. Don't know when it flipped, but this a good argument for different colors for hammock and quilt-maybe one bright safety yellow.

    My adventure included a Fronkey style net. Among other issues, my deductive reasoning was impaired by adult refreshments, so it took awhile. Amazingly, the only damage was to my pride.

    Probably softened the impact!

    And one more reason that I like integrated nets over Fronkeys. Wouldn't have happened with my net zipped on.

    I probably do that stunt once a year... But never with an integrated hammock so far.
