    I suppose it depends on your height and width, but I think you will really like the trailwinder. If he was willing to make them with 850 hyperdry down, they would be perfect. It fits me and my...

    I don't have an adult size HH. But for $35 and 10 oz, the open cell pad seems like something you could add to any hammock, and with a 2qzq uqp as a replacement for the undercover, you save a drop of...

    Sounds like either would fit in it fine, but probably not at the same time. Depending on the weight of the cpap, one nice thing about the sling is that you can tighten it to the ridgeline or loosen...

    I really like the 1.3. Less stretch than the 1.6 hyperD for me (I'm 150#) and less weight. I like the 1.6 too, but prefer less stretch and less weight. They do feel different, but it doesn't bother...
