  4. Hammock gear Incubator 20F Long Overstuff Under Quilt

    It's a sad day to post this UQ. It's my favorite piece of hammock gear, but we're leaving the US for Cambodia, and I definitely won't be using it there. It's less than 2 years old, so it's not...

  9. Who uses a tarp in addition to the one over your hammock?

    Pillow preference

    gear storage

    Once things dry up, I keep most things in my pack, but during the wet seasons, it's pretty spread out and in different containers. I REALLY need to part with some things to simplify.

    Uncomfortable using BB as a chair?

    Whenever I'm sitting in my BB, the open edge ALWAYS seems to be much "tighter" than the rest of the hammock. I just can't get it to sit comfortably no matter how much fiddling I do.
