When it is dark and you are climbing into the hammock, be sure (absolutely sure) that what you are preparing to sit on is actually the hammock and not the underquilt.
Haha - happened to me on the Foothills Trail...but I rolled out like a Ninja and came out looking tough anyway.
Happened to Erik (using my gear) at Mt Rogers in January. He sat on the underquilt and broke the shockcord on one side of the underquilt suspension...then climbed in and went to sleep anyway. Didn't even complain about being cold, either. Dude's a machine.
