Actually it is very comfy due to its size. But thats its achilles heel too. To big for small tarps and to heavy. I still use it when the bugs are running. When the bugs are gone I use the cheapie Grand Trunk UL, kind of makes me laugh to think I perfer that one at only $15.00. I bought it when one of my kids wanted to hang but I find myself using it more than not. 10 oz ohhh yea
Sigh. On day eight from the shipping conformation. Seems like forever.
I already received my webbing and cinch buckles from AEI (thanks Paul). Can't wait to try it out.
I had to wait 14 days. Hard to find another (turn key) set-up like it though. Where abouts are you in Florida?

Are you planning on sticking with the stock suspension, or changing to something fancier? I actually kind of like the stock suspension, I might be the only one here who does. ( can't beat the cost and weight ) I am still using the stock on one end of my Claytor No Net after 2+ years now. BUT, if you do decide to use it in rainy weather, be sure to- at the least- put some extra over hand knots just a few inches from the hammock, one each on left and right side of the channel on each end. Otherwise, you will get soaked in a good rain. ( there are also other ways to deal with this, but this is the simplest, probably)
EDTT: OOPS! Never mind, I see you are changing the suspension! Good deal, that will work!
Apparently, signature that I used from 2006 no longer tolerated so now deleted.
Update. It made it and I've already taken the mid day nap. I added teh AHE cinch buckle set up right away. I did not realize it was ripstop nylon just like my GI poncho but that's no problem at all for me. Since this is my first tarp I need some practice but it provided enough shade in this 105 heat index Florida weather. The mosquitos were mean and after I killed off the ones that snuck in when I got in it was great. I am a side sleeper at home and was able to do so in this but found I laid on my back just as comfortable.
The fly came with 10 foot ropes, has anyone replaced these for longer ones?
Congrats on your new Claytor Jungle!
Can't offer any advice at all, since I'm currently waiting for my own to arrive
I hate waiting!
Hope to see some pics of your new setup.
