    I use 1.75mm Zingit on all of my hammocks. I have half a dozen. Some have a fixed RL and some have an adjustable.

    I weight about 190-ish.

    I've tried that.. problem is it is only a one way trip. Since you can't fit them in your pack or under the tarp, you have to either deflate them or jettison them once you get to camp.

    I can only make feeble guess as to how the tarp was used and cared for prior buying it. Fruitless to try to figure it out.

    I don't want to hack-job it. Best to let HG figure it out.

    Just don't want to going hit and miss. I examined the seam once everything was dry and I can't tell where it's infiltrating.




    No seam sealing on a cuben fiber tarp.

    I agree with 100 Ton.. if you're trying to pull the extra side fabric in you're creating extra tension at the side hems and a deep bucket in the hammock body. I'd never be able to get out of that. ...
