    Sleeping in riding gear sounds like more of a pain than packing a top quilt...not to mention the eventual unbearable stench. I'd recommend a DIY or cottage industry TQ and sorting out how to pack the...

    I am 6-3ish and 275ish. While my first hammocks were 10' and comfortable the 11' Warbonnet Blackbird XLC made for a big improvement. I say this not to turn you toward the WB but to consider that...

    Well in case there is any doubt; I am 6-3, 270ish and while the standard worked the XLC is superior comfort wise. Got rid of all my standard hammocks.

    I have a set of the Cinch Bugs and have used several sets of the Warbonnet Adjustable webbing. Much prefer the Cinch Bugs though adjusting the WB is not a big deal once you get used to it.

    I put a cord lock on one end and added a micro biner on the UQP side to give me a bit more adjustment. Works like a charm.
