  10. Tarp

    It depends on if i'm using my big Hammock Gear winter palace tarp...or a small tarp.

    The winter palace tarp can go over the top of the triangle no problem.

    But if i'm using a smaller tarp that...
  11. dynaglide adustment

    You adjust the length of the dynaglide (size of the triangle) with the marlin spike hitch :)

    So if the trees are close together...you can shrink the triangle up accordingly.

  16. Marlin spike hitch...or looped through webbing

    Note the loop used for the marlin spike hitch...for the sake of safety.

    And for those who prefer a lighter alternative...you can just go straight through the sewn loop of your strap too.

    Ok here we go.


    You see, as a noob, I found that I have a hard time dialing in my suspension to get a proper lay...too many adjustments...no doubt mostly due to lack of experience...but also I...
