    Thumbs up Simplify for Winter Camping!

    I just went camping and it was 5 degrees below zero (a warm spell for Shug!) and tested my Superfly modifications. I converted all of my Superfly tie outs to LineLocs and use Dutch Biners for the tree attachment. The LineLocs work great for centering and tensioning the Superfly! The stake tie outs are also LineLocs and work great, everything can be adjusted with gloves on. The best modification I did was adding the 2QZQ pole pockets this gives room under the tarp without hassling with tarp pull outs, and can't recommend enough. The next change was converting my hammock suspension to the Dutchware Cinch Buckel Suspension Kit simple and easy to adjust!!
    Everything is simple and easy to set up!

    Yeah it is great to not have to take off your gloves when setting up and tearing down. Cinch Buckle is my winter set up too.

    I just ordered some linelocks for the same reason. Simple in winter and you can use them with gloves on.
