    Or I guess you could use one to fasten a line so you can pull it up when you want to reach something in it. If you hang it under the hammock, that is.

    A glimpse of Sweden

    I don't find a forum for off topic (for everyone), so I post this here.

    Swedish television is live-streaming from a moose migration, for several weeks it seems, beginning today.

    Gear Sling

    I don't have a DD Hammock, I have a Hennessy, but I bought the DD gear sling. I can't figure out what the woven loops that are sewn to the sides of the sling are for. A special DD feature? :confused:...

    There are some examples here of pitching a standard Hennessy on the ground. I guess that should work with any other hammock of the same type as well.

    There's also a bit about centering the left side tie-out between one's shoulder and elbow. Maybe there's some advantage in lying with your body between the tie-out points?

    Odd though Hennessy give so explicit directions. Zipper to the right, head to the left, feet to the right. Maybe it's meant just as an example of how to lie diagonally.
