    Yeah, I made one of the hammocks out of the .90, and I also have one made from 1.6.

    Verdict: don't bother with the .90. Too stretchy to really be comfortable for more than lounging. The 1.6 still...

    I came here to say exactly this. Right after you show the Pop Tart to the camera, the look on your face is a perfect illustration of why we all do what we do.

    Another idea for the budget-conscious: make an UQ from 5.0 Climashield and some Wally World bargain bin nylon. For probably something like $35, you could have a proper beefy underquilt. Even if you...

    Anyone know if the huggers come in the new black webbing? Also, I'm assuming the difference between huggers and tree straps is the number of loops, 1 vs 2. Right?
