    After reading your post earlier, I also checked the closed threads in the WTB sub-forum, searching for "Snugpak" and that turned up empty as well.

    And if you flip the net over and reattach it, you've reversed the asym direction. Same goes for Chameleon and probably some others. I don't recall if you can flip the net on a Sparrow to reverse...

    You've got it right. The hammock itself is a symmetrical, rectangular piece of fabric, but because the asym bug net is not removable and only has a zipper on one side, it makes the package as a...

    What I'm guessing Mike is going to try, and you could do the same, would be just whipping 1 foot off one end of the 11' hammock and adding a continuous loop behind the whipping. Or if you want to...

    3/32" is a common choice. 1/16" is pretty scrawny and 1/8" seems like overkill for tarp tensioners. I don't know a breaking strength on the 3/32" but I know you can pull on it pretty hard after it's...
