Even though we offer this zipper mod service, I must say that I still use my entry slit from time to time. The zipper adds another dimension of flexibility to the hammock. For instance, when the side is unzipped, I can load or unload the hammock much easier, especially in the rain when I'm trying to stay under the fly. I use quilts now instead of my CCf pad, but I remember the days of trying to stuff the pad in the slit. Not much fun. The side zipper eliminates some stress in so many ways. Again, let me be quick to mention that if I'm trying to stay ahead of the skeeters though, the slit is quicker and more effective....assuming everything I want has been loaded and ready to go. Lastly, when I hang really high to catch a breeze or span a stream, the slit is the only way in!
