The tieouts on the HH have little to do with extra fabric as I have experienced it. What the tieouts do is to define the shape. You can sleep in the HH without the tieouts and I have seen Brandon say the same about the blackbird. But the tieouts on the HH rather natrually settle you into a particular position and particular place. The HH tieouts have more impact on the bug net than the hammock body fabric. They can help align underquilts and such depending on the angle that you use to tie them out. Closer to horizontal tends to keep the sides of an underquilt higher and a steeper angle tends to allow the sides toi sag more. I don't know if the same is true for the BB or not.
