Seriously, can these HH clones sit as well as a Speer? I often like to sit in my hammock. It seems the ridgeline would interfere while sitting.
That's why these clones have a removeable ridgeline, so you can remove it if it becomes uncomfortable.
So are you guys using load bearing biners for the ridgeline or or what? I should be getting my fabric in today. I just might try this HH clone deal
There is a pic of me lounging in the hammock. It sits great by just unattaching the side tie out, much like a HH, and if the ridge line bothers me I can undo it also. Because the side of this hammock are looser than a Speer type I think it sits better than my Speers.

Do you think the netting could be attached using Velcro instead of a zipper? I wonder if the weight savings would even be worth the effort of attaching the bug netting every time you get in. I could have a zipper on just one side. This way I can roll it to one side. Hmmmm.

I wonder if the velcro would make a good enough seal. Any force on the netting could pull it loose letting the crawlys in.
Is that too much to ask? Girls with frikkin' lasers on their heads?

That is what I was asking in fact. I would have already done it if I was confident it would work.
