    I couldn’t help but notice the underquilt at 27 oz. Wouldn’t that be cheaper upgrade than a topquilt? An HG Phoenix could save you 12 oz. add a sitpad for .98 oz. unless you’re married to full length.

    As I understand it, the only difference between a Bridge pullout and standard is that the bridge is more widely spaced, correct? This tarp would work fine with a non-bridge hammock also, yes?
