My SwitchBack is coming!
These are a quite slow pages compared to Warbonnet section. I do not like these announcements, but in this case I thought it would be nice to have a new post here.
So, maybe in little over week I will be hanging on my new DL 1.9 SB with strap suspension.
The switchback is still the best hammock that I own. I have a wbbb, a jrb bridge, light owl and 2 or 3 others. The switchback is still my go to hammock, and the one that I sleep the best in. Enjoy. dave
yep.. i've been thru a slew of X-hammocks, but the TTTG SBLH still hangs in my closet--- RW Mod and all.
congrats! on your new hammock. enjoy it! well built, and comfort trumps.
Hopefully I'll be enjoying my SB soon--haven't had it out in a while other than out at the park playing with my kids. They are great hammocks. Enjoy!

I paid customs today
So it should be here tomorrow or wednesday at least.
I have been thinking SB should be a perfect companion to my MLD TrailsStar.
- Suspension can be hanged lower than BB, less interference with tarp and tarp can be hanged lower if in need to get a better wind protection (wind protection is problem with TrailStar in hammock use).
- Due to it's structure SB can be used as a mosquito netting when sleeping on ground under TrailStar, BB is not good for ground use.
- Winter and autumn time I can flip it over if the weather is warm and still enough and enjoy open space around me and better views. (Mosquito netting protects from wind and keeps warmth around, not much but it is noticeable at face area in cold season)
My own thread about TrailStar: http://www.hammockforums.net/forum/s...ad.php?t=24852
I do not know how, but it feels just like I have always imagined hammock should.
Even when loaded with Exped SynMat DLX 9 and 14 mm full sized CCF pad and Wiggy's Antarctic with over bag everything just fits in and settles automagically right in the best spot. With BB there was always something to adjust to get everything in the right position for sleeping.
Comfort and simplicity! That is what I was looking for.
Glad you like it, i'm impressed with mine too.
I noticed the website says suspension sold separately. I think they started with Whoopie then went to strap/buckles. Did yours come with straps or were they extra?
