    What nylon have you been using for your current hammock? 20D nylon has way more stretch than 70D nylon. The 1.2 oz MTN is actually a lot stretchier than a 70D ripstop nylon. I get back pain in a 1.2...

    The magic is in the design i.e. the pattern. Not so much the hammock body, but definitely the zippered net. It needs to be taut when you're lying in the hammock, but not so tight it rips or keeps you...

    Are you continually switching the net of your XLC to change the lay direction? The XLC is not a symmetrical hammock, so you would have to fiddle around a lot if you want to flip flop. My guess is, if...

    I damaged two 10D underquilts. Since then I prefer stronger fabrics. The Wooki I currently use most is 20D, but my 15D underquilt feels strong enough, too.

    You can attach it anyway you like. Mini biners work. Just make sure to add an extension, as the HG hammock is longer than the XLC. Otherwise you will bust the rubber band - or rip the Wooki.
