    Double Layer Eldorado + Suspension was under the limit when having to pay customs. Had to be bought. Now I just really have to sell one hammock to justify this to myself ��

    Oh I see. Didn't think of that.. Placing stuff under the ocf pad you can only add warmth for your butt and back.

    Oh yeah I have the Borg too to compare :) Yes looks good. Smaller than I thought. I think the smaller Draumr actually comes in bigger package but I guess it cannot be much more bigger than the XL.
