    I didn't think about the buckle. I was using Dutch Buckles. He recommends tying a half hitch behind the buckle and I forgot to do that. Its been a year since I last used the hammock strap/dutch...

    I heard that Santa's hammock is self levitating which is a pretty nice feature. It involves high octane eggnog, gps, and intense belief that it will work. It's very difficult for ordinary people to...

    Me too. But I'm thinking of making my own pack with special features for my hammock gear that would save some weight and make life easier.

    Nice ideas. It's possible to isolate a wet tarp from the other gear and eliminate a stuff sack with this one. I also like the grab and go concept of everything you use daily within easy reach...

    How about a haul loop with Velcro or something like that to hang the pack from the hammock suspension? Using a caribiner to snap it on just adds a little weight to your load. How about an internal...

  27. Custom features hammockers would like in a backpack

    This question deals with something that would only apply to hammock campers. If you didn't have a hammock the question wouldn't apply, so I believe it's acceptable for hammock forums.

    So, if you...

    Thanks. I was going to look it up today. My tarp is many years old, so current dimensions may be different. I've been too lazy so far to pull out the tarp and measure it.

    I've bought from Dutch before and you're right, he's fast. Tadpole is a little under 8 feet wide and my Hennessey hex is a little over 9 (maybe 9.5) if I remember right. The tadpole doesn't seem...

    I think you missed the point. I need it for a trip in about 10 days. I ordered a quilt from them and got it a little early but it was nearly a month waiting time.
  37. Hex tarp needed - who has fast availability?

    Yeah, you can almost always find something. I hike with a bunch of tent campers, though, and typically the majority doesn't pick a campsite based on good trees for my hammock.
