    I just don't hang near a campfire. I also never pitched a tent near a campfire. When winds are 20 mph an ember can travel quite a distance.

    It's really hard to believe Hammock Gear would recommend folding. It's impractical and downright impossible with any wind.

    No way I'm folding cuben fiber (or any other material). That assumes no wind. I just roll it up in the snakeskins and hit the road.

    I did the velcro thing for a while, but it was a pain in the butt. I'd be rolling up the tarp and the wind would catch it and unroll it, and I'd have to start all over again. It got old quick.
