Congrats & Thanks!
Double, but for a different reason - mosquitoes.
I have a 12 and a 16, treated both with the walmart tent spray and they have been 100%waterproof in even south La. downpours.
I live in Louisiana, so I never, ever go out without a tarp. I do set it up "porch" style fairly often, but want it set up almost every night. As far as what to buy, I have a Hennessy Hex, but I...
I also have one of the 2QZQ Grizz Beaks that works wonders when I need a tarp door. Together they keep the wind and rain out and everything else clean.
I have a breathable 2QZQ Hammock Specialties UQP and love it. I didn't want the potential condensation, but the protection and cut in the breeze is great.
I use the Hex with my Explorer because I love the extra room. And because it rains here all of the time. I have never been wet (yet) even in downpours. I didn't think that the OEM tarp covered...
I'm 6'1" / 200lbs and fit perfectly in my HH Explorer Deluxe Zip too. There is plenty of room.
I use a Hex and love it. I mostly camp with Scouts within an easy hike of the truck, so weight is not that big a deal to me.
Just seeing this - fantastic! I have some scouts who will love it.
Enter Me in the Giveaway - Another Scout dad who knos some kids that would love this. And thanks!
And you guys think that adjusting your underquilt is a PITA...:scared::lol:
This^^ One of the things that led me to hammocks in the first place was the natural "A/C" effect. We camp at least once a year in late spring & early fall when the temps remain above 70 and its...
In Louisiana we have 2 seasons - more bug season and less bug season....
Howdy from another relative noob right down the road.
I agree with Goose 1 - you are missing the point. I bought one for $33, cut the zipper out and have a very small, very light TQ that will work year round down here.
I love my Dutch Buckles and am glad that I got a set before "the incident". :scared::shades:
^^ This. No need to have an unnecessary impact.
I would be more worried about feral pigs down here. I have had them go right through camps. You probably had either a deer or a raccoon taking a sniff.
Congrats and thanks for the shot!
I'll take the other one.
Same here. But thanks to the OP for the heads up.
True. I got a couple when they were $33.
For that kind of $$ and work, why not just buy a good UQ from one of the vendors here?
Cutting the airflow by lowering my hammock/tarp to almost the ground helps because it cuts the wind.
If you want dual use, try a Big Agnes bag and insulated pad. I used mine and its a great combo in a hammock and on the ground. Just don't fully inflate the pad - about 1/2 full is fine.
You guys think that it's any better than one of the Wal-Mart down bags with the zipper cut out?
I'll take the SS at the agreed upon PM price. $$ on the way now. Thanks.
Thanks - I need something that will go down below freezing.
I need one in a dark color preferably. Let me know what you have and what you want for it shipped to Baton Rouge. Thanks!
I bought 2 while they were cheap. I cut the zipper out of one and I am going to double the ribbon that is there already and sew it down. I may also sew across and cut the hood off, but haven't yet....
Cool - Thanks!
Both now Sold - Thanks!
I live and camp in a swamp. I want a UQ for cold (cooler) weather. Full length. Any recommendations for humid conditions?
In! And Merry Christmas!
Nice! Merry Christmas!
I tried the rings, and the worked okay, but I switched to a Dutchware Buckle Suspension with Dutch Clips and it is far easier to deal with, holds tight, is smaller & lighter... simply better and...
Thanks! One down, one to go...
Another bump - $35 shipped.
How about a small price reduction = anyone have a full length UQ that they want to trade? (of course I'll be adding $$...) Let me know!
These won't be comfortable for you as they are just too short in my opinion.
Both new - 1 still in the plastic, 1 set up once to let my kids try it in the back yard. I bought 2 because I thought that my kids would like them, but they prefer their tent. The steel hooks are...
I'll take them. Just send me your PP.
I'll take the pillow and a set of whoopies. Great seller folks - buy with confidence.
The Dutch HH replacement set with whoopies is fantastic.
I'll take the grizz beaks - pm inbound
I bought a couple on eBay for $20 to the door in great shape. Just be patient.
That along with weight is what promoted me to make the switch. The rings can be a PITA to get loose and to adjust compared to the whoopie/Dutchbuckle which is just plain easy.
I'm in - Thanks!
