I'll take it
Insulation is found, still looking for the tarp
The title says it all
Cuben Fiber Hex Tarp
Phoenix 40 (preferably with overstuff)
Just making it clear that I came across the reviews, I didn't post them
Glad to know someone agrees. Thank you
How about the fact that they changed their account's personal information after they were called out. Why would a fanboy do that? I don't see why they would want to hide their love for the company....
Okay sorry for the inconvenience
Its different from a commercial. They are pretending to be consumers that bought the product.
So maybe if you are stuck between one of their products versus someone else's, think about what kind of company you are buying from.
But they aren't "reviewing" their products. They are just putting 5 star reviews. This tells us something about their character. I'm not trying to shock all of you, I know people do this. But from a...
I just came across it.

TheTurtle will retract his post. Hammock still up for grabs
It is blue
I've got a Grand Trunk Ultralight Hammock. It is only the hammock, but I still have the s-hooks if you still want those with it. It has only been used about 3 times in the backyard, but it still...
Nice hammock! What fabric are you using?
What kind if underquilt were you using?
I prefer the only long piece because it is just easier to deploy. Instead of having to remove one half, then go to the other side, you can just do it all at once
I ordered an asym tarp that took 15 days
The 90 is theoretically more durable so that is an added bonus
The wilderness logic summer series quilts are a good option
+1 on reflectix. A cheaper alternative is a car windshield reflector from Walmart. They are pretty much made out of the same stuff and only the exact amount you need
When I took it out on the trip was the first time I slept in it and I thought it was pretty comfortable. So yeah, I think I could. I might eventually switch from bed to hammock too
+1 on dogbones. They are really light and inexpensive too
I got this tarp as a birthday gift and I absolutely love. Definitely worth the money
I made a belt out of an extra tree strap I had so whenever this happens, I can just attach my belt
I also like the side entry because I can relax in the hammock without the bug net, but still have it attached to the hammock, while with bottom entry, I have to either get in the bug net, or detach...
For the side that I cinch closed, it stays perfectly fine because I can always get it really tightly closed. The side that the suspension feeds through also is fine because I just tie it closed with...
It is 90" long by 40" tall. Here is a look at the opening for the suspension. I just sewed in some leftover argon 90http://img.tapatalk.com/d/14/09/03/jyqyde7u.jpg
With a compression sack you should be able to get it down to 1/3 of it's original size with no damage.
Haven't made any purchases yet but am planning on get a new top and under quilt
Nice! This will be my first winter season since I've gotten into hiking and I can't wait
How wide is your hammock?
I've actually had the same question. The only thing I can think of is simplicity. It might also prevent the damage because of the smooth titanium
I know this is old, but I can make a set of tulle snakeskins that work just as well with a little extra care.
That is quite the deal. Thanks for sharing
I use tulle snakeskins and they have been working out great
After the trip all the gear held up very well. I'm definitely loving it! I would recommend using tulle because everything I've heard about it being weak so far has been false
You are correct. The other end is tapered and the side in the picture is the drawcord. The tulle held up very well with zero signs of damage after the trip.
Going on an overnighter through the rollercoaster on the AT tomorrow (Saturday) so I'll give an update when I get back
So pretty much silnylon is the way to go
1.1 ripstop may have a DWR but that's only water repellent, while silnylon is waterproof. Silnylon's finished weight is usually 1.4oz/sqyd
I bought it off of amazon. I can't remember the seller's name. I got it because it was 108" wide
The tulle is definitely not as strong as noseeum, but is actually surprisingly strong. It takes a decent amount of force to tear it. I've also tested how easy it can be punctured, and it again isn't...
I made a down underquilt, and I use a fleece sleeping bag. I am planning on getting a top quilt later on. As for the nylon straps, they work just as well as polyester and zero stretch.
I can also put out more pictures of specific gear if requested
After doing lots of research on this forum, I came across SGT. Rock's sub 13 oz setup. That inspired me to make my own, so here it is! Feedback would be greatly appreciated.
(Also keep in mind,...
I know this thread is really old, but just in case someone reads this, I actually had success with my tulle snakeskins. Just make sure you sew on reinforcement nylon on both the edges
If you have the skills, go DIY. The wilderness logic tadpole with a for mod is a good option too
