    I think there was a kickstarter or something similar in a thread here a few months ago that did just that. It might be a European design, if I remember correctly. Didn't generate much interest on...

    Welcome to the forums, CabbagePatch. 24-foot python straps? That's way long. Most would be using, say, 12 to 15 footers on each end. You may have more strap than you need merely to hang a...

    I'm jealous of your week in the woods. From the photos it looks like you were prepared. I see a gear hammock, a bottom entry bugnet and I think we've got the same tarp.

    Welcome to the forums. Shug is sort of the gateway drug to hanging, isn't he? Hope you get out soon and enjoy an overnight in that Warbonnet. You've picked a very well made and versatile hammock.

    The only smell that seems to cling to my feathers is my own. So far, airing the quilt out after a trip has always taken care of it. I imagine washing would be the solution if ever that didn't work.

    Four of us just hiked the Foothills Trail the first week of May, and I took my bridge along despite the weight penalty of the spreader bars. I slept well every night and was glad I had it.
