What does that beauty weigh?
My WBBB is in 1.1dbl and I like it just fine. But my Traveler is 1.7sl, and I must admit I like the feel of it better. I originally wanted a double layer because of the ability to slip a pad in...
No problem. If you are moving to a 4 season setup, also keep in mind that the SF has a lot more coverage than the cuben (or at least the one I have). The difference between 8.5 and 10 feet of total...
i have cuben, spinn and sil tarps. the cuben is the lightest, but the sil packs smaller and is the heaviest. the spinn packs a little tighter than the cuben, but is also a little heavier. if pack...
Welcome to the madness for sure!
Sounds good - they are yours.
For sale is a perfect condition set of strap suspension that came off my Warbonnet Traveller. It is the newer style with triangles that do not need the half hitch tied behind them. $20 shipped...
I couldn't decide so I bought four -- one brand new Superfly and three others in the FS section. I love them all - a MacCat Delux with door mod in sil, a WB BMJ in spinn and most recently a Hammock...
I, the other guy from Radford, welcome you.
Can't resist. I'll take it. Thanks.
I have a set. And if it's just the triangles you need, then that's even better, because I'd love to keep the straps. Let me know.
If you can get it to va by thurs I'll take it. Do you know if USPS has that in them?
I'm in. Thanks.
These are also on 6pm.com if you missed the SC.
i have a pair and love them - i thought they would be a temporary til i could afford goretex or something more expensive. but, no, i love mine and plan to keep them.
Thanks - good info to have. I've not yet had to double up quilts, but probably will have to next month on a trip. This stuff is good to know. Thanks again.
Curious - how low have you gone with that setup? Or how low do you think it could go? Thanks.

Ridgeline ensures you get the proper sag in the hammock. You want the right sag, so that you can get a nice flat lay. To get proper tension, try to get trees about 15' apart, and then experiment...
Wow! That looks great - Good job!
No worries, thanks for the interest.
Oh, sorry, misunderstood. The widely published specs of down routinely do not state the amount of down used. Don't know why that is. I found on the Marmot website that a staff member responded to...
800 fill of goose down.
I have gained just a tad of weight, and I was on the border between medium and large anyway. So my medium is a little snug on me. I never took it in the woods - wore it around town for about three...
I'm also interested in this. I've found recently that I'm a cold sleeper, so I may have to stack.
Not familiar with that particular hammock, but, yes, most people avoid the banana hang and get on an angle. You may also want to check the sag in the hammock - it might be a little tight if you...
You will not be disappointed - with both your membership here, nor your decision to get off the ground. Welcome from Virginia.
Wow! One of the best looking hangs I've seen!
I think most of us can blame Shug for our interests in hammocking.
Now on to your topic - that is one awesome looking stand. That should keep you off the ground most any place you might go...
i'll take it. thanks.
I'm heading out this weekend, too, and I'm wondering if where I'm going is where the timber rattlers gather. Where are you going, if you don't mind me asking?
That's an awesome tarp - I haven't made the jump to Cuben yet, but when I do, that one will be at the top of my list. And I, too, use my tarps as gotoground pup tents when I camp with the kids, who...
that's a beauty!
your avatar is way cool - 'bout knocked my monitor over slapping at that bug!
i would get some zing it for the ridgeline - cheap and real good.
What kind of suspension you got on that bad boy?
stick with brandon - in my personal experience, he went above and beyond -- answering many inquiries very promptly, many emails in the middle of the night! he's a stand up guy -- and, goes without...
Yeah, I just pulled the trigger on a Garmin Oregon 450 - $249 plus a $50 rebate - much too good a deal to pass up. Glad I got one before they sold out.
I have a Yeti that I use most often, but I also have a JRB No Sniveller that can be rigged as a full length underquilt. And I have to say, for all out comfort, if you're not counting the grams, the...
Can't resist - I'll take the tarp. Just praying it gets here when wife is at work.
Wow! I've been following threads that address hanging sidebyside, because I'd love to get my son out in a hammock, but I'm afraid the only way he'd do it is if he was right next to me. This setup...
That is one sweet setup. What size tarp do you use for cover?
I compress wbbb, superfly, yeti no sniv tq and my clothes into a medium size sea to summit event compression sack. Works great.
That's a steal for an underquilt. I clicked through to check it out, but I can't find specs on it. Do you know what it weighs and how it packs? Thanks.
Good gosh, I just don't have any wilpower. I just hope it arrives when my wife's not home. I'll take it. Thanks.
+1 on this. I wonder how common it is that thunderstorms cause campers harm - whether in tent or hammock.
Quick question - I have a JRB No Sniv that I can also rig as an uq. Do you know if the tabs on this one are similar or have you ever rigged it as an UQ? Thanks.
My kids tore the bottom of my 1.0 dl bb - started with a 2 inch rip on the outer layer - I sail taped it and it didn't hold worth a darn - turned into a 20" rip from side to side. I ordered some...
I've used both, but prefer a quilt.
