    Heavy Duty would be my guess.

    The Trail Designs stakes are just a wee bit heavier duty than the run of the mill Amazon ones. 3.5mm diameter for TD vs 3mm for the TiTo ones (for example).

    When outdoors, do you normally hang the head and foot ends of the hammocks at the same height? It looks like that's the case in your photo. Hanging the foot end higher helps with getting into and...

    What cmoulder said. There's one cinch on each of the top corners of the quilt laid flat. That means when it's snapped you lay on top of them. The one thing I don't like about the Bandit.
