    Anyone have a source on a sturdy inexpensive bag to pack my disassembled stand into for storage and transport? (I've got 6' legs)

    The issue i see with using the mitered L fitting for the outside leg of a bipod stand is that it separates thd legs from eachother and puts some weird forces on the toprail. No idea what it would do...

    I leave mine on the hammock and just stuff it into the hammocks double ended stuff sack. If I just want the hammock deployed I just stuff the bugnet into the stuffsack at the end and cinch it up.
