Can't believe this didn't get snapped up already.

Can't believe this didn't get snapped up already.
It looks like there are tension lines that are adjustable from the side.
I think this is pretty cool looking, but outside of being able to adjust the head and foot ends, not sure what it does that...
Kind of heavy, but it did look interesting when split for two people.
I might be interested in one for the back yard or car camping with the gf. Not sure I would get in on the kickstarter, would...
I recommend staying away from the Morakniv spoon knife unless you're good at sharpening. They come dull. I've sharpened mine some, but still not as much as I'd like.
you just need two jeeps, then you can sling any hammock you want between the two.
What is your definition of commercially manufactured? You could be limiting your best options with that statement.
Do you mind me asking why you're selling?
I would love to pick it up, but don't have it in the budget at the moment.
The Kickstarter $225 package has an upgrade for an additional $100 to add a Pares hammock.
Once the Kickstart is over, the list price for the nube, not including the Pares is $300.
Welcome to Hammock Forums!
The nube looks like a very intersting product. I enjoy seeing new ideas, and vendors that are willing to jump on the forums and answer questions.
I could be wrong, but I think the Nube itself is just the shelter (tarp/net/gear loft). You add your own hammock. They make a hammock, but I don't think it's included in this setup, which makes it...
I've used Tyvek tape for my tie outs on ground sheets/footprints. I've never made a Tyvek tarp though.
Take a pocket knife with you in case you need to cut your way out ;)
I have a huuuuge Mayan I use in my backyard. It's so deep it feels like I can't make it out sometimes.
Exactly. That style strap, regardless of material, is hard to tune for sleeping comfort. They are extremely appealing to people new to hammocks that want a super easy set up. They work fine for...
Last time I camped at Buck's Pocket, there was a mess of coyotes howling. When they got done, the owls started up. That place is loud at night ;)
Point taken, but the ability to find a hammock that is most comfortable to you and then slap on some insulation is more appealing to me
Maybe just the lack of fiddle factor and having to attach the quilt?
I would be curious to know if the insulation goes all the way up the sides
It's a neat idea, but doesn't provide a lot of...
The hennessy makes more sense all around.
The eno DN is a comfortable hammock, but their tarps and bug net design leave much to be desired.
you can run the webbing through the loop on the end to secure it around the post/tree, then run the webbing through the rings to connect it to the hammock.
a biner makes it quicker, but is not...
in Alabama, if you use that, you're likely to get poison oak in a spot you don't want it.
Hey LD, sorry for not responding in time to help.
I subscribed to the thread, but haven't received any updates in weeks.
As has already been stated, it was the diamond tarp included in the...
I would be careful buying a brazilian hammock, especially any of the larger ones. They can be deep, and hard to get out of
and she's back on the hike
my polar pod looks deflated now!!!
When I got back from Thanksgiving, I had a package in my garage!!!
When I pulled the hammock out of the box, I noticed a slight tear/cut on the stuff...
I just checked the spreadsheet, and was a little bit confused because the ship date shows it shipped on 10/19, but I'm assuming it meant 11/19.
I'm out of town for Thanksgiving, but heading home...
I saw a handful of faint ones and one really impressive one. But started nodding out around midnight
if you posted a picture, maybe others could help you identify the model.
I have one of the XXXXXXL ones or whatever
I think you could fit about 11 people on it. I usually end up laying sideways on it.
The problem with it being so wide is the depth. I need to...
I went about 15 ft apart with mine, and I had to make my attachment points around 6ft (or just over) to get a nice 30 degree suspension to my wbbb and eno dn.
the further you distance them apart,...
I'm not sure what the set amount of time for responding should be prior to the deal falling through, but it seems like it should be much more than two hours.
A while back I ordered a 50* flight jacket as a summer quilt (and to help reduce the cold spot at the top of my polar pod) and a 40* zeppelin.
I had the opportunity to try these out while on a...
Same here, amazon had them on prime
Sorry about the thread resurrection, I never came back to this one for some reason.
The "hosts" file is just a manual mapping of IP address to DNS name. The local hosts file is checked prior to...
I have two 6x6x12 buried 36" in concrete (a lot of concrete) and they're rock solid.
I've had several people in an XXL Mayan with me, and I'm a large dude. No issues so far.
I used some necked...
Count me in
I couldn't believe more people didn't take TTTG up on the switchback tour either.
What a fantastic idea for people to be able to try out a model without having to buy it.
if others aren't yet, i'm sure they will be soon
I would love try one out. Please include me on the list.
yours has the nipple cap underneath?
mine is on bottom, but on the side.
just weighed mine, same 12cm legs.
3.9oz w/ case
2.5oz w/o case
I've done this several times.
I was so low that I had to put my feet on the ground and walk the hammock back to a height I could stand up from.
depends on your hammocks i would think.
generally 14-15ft is the recommended distance
If its only a few sites you have issues with, you can put some static entries in the host file on your computer. (assuming they're not using dynamic DNS)
In all the pictures, it looks like the suspension has almost no angle to it.
It immediately makes me think of the hammock calculator, and wonder how much shear force this thing is putting on those...
I was wondering the same thing
It just kind of depends what you want to do.
In my opinion, the hammock is going to be deployed. The tarp is optional, depending on the weather. I like the idea of having the tarp ready to go,...
Add another satisfied mountaingoat customer. Love my tarp skins
Thread resurrection! This was a sale in 2011 ;)
Any chance the magnets alone could hold up a uq without attaching to the suspension?
