    Traveler Hammock with separate bug net first hang impressions

    Purchased a Traveler 1.1 SL Hammock with webbing/buckles April 27 and arrived May 14 (impressive given the fact they got slammed with orders and I am in Canada)
    Last night I got it all setup for a backyard test hang and it worked great
    I went this route as I am wanting something modular and small for minimizing pack space that is consumed.
    The Traveler is a wide 61" x 100" RL hammock and it is very very comfortable.
    I went with the 1.1 SL as I will never use a pad and the matching bug net will keep bugs away from the Hammock 360*. I want no extra layers between me and the UQ. The 200lbs rating far exceeds my skeletal self.
    Having the Hennessy DJ XL I find the extra layer to possibly be problematic with quilt use by creating air gaps between fabric layers and sucking heat away from my leg area... besides down works best close to ones body with minimal stuff between.
    For comfort the Traveler does slightly exceed the Hennessy. Less ankle squish(which is what I was after) and in general a little less Fajita squish. Length is here nor there really.
    The separate bug net allows me to go topless when the bugs are not around and again less pack space used if not required.
    If your always dealing with bugs on your hangs a integrated bug net is much much easier to deal with.
    This bug net being completely enclosed allows you to store things in the bottom (within reason).
    Some pull tabs on the zippers would be nice.

    As for the Webbing buckles ...I know some complain about there use (getting them to release) but too me they are easy peasy
    And if you do order with the webbing get the pair of Carabiners as it does not come with them

    Looking forward too many nights with the stars above

    Bug net is in the red stuff sack....can compress that done to at least 1/3rd the size
    Hanging with a Hennessy Monsoon Tarp without the doors

    Yah I am stuck in this Rabbit Hole ...dang you people...

    Good stuff. Happy hanging!
    Adult tree frogs are insectivores that eat flies, ants, crickets, beetles, moths, and other small invertebrates. However, most of them start off their lives as herbivores in the tadpole stage.

    Looks like a nice set-up!
    Did you get hit with any brokerage fees or taxes getting it shipped to Canada?

    GST, PST and the 9$ something Canada post fee...added nearly 30$ more to the price. You get lucky with no PST...for now..hahaha

    Loving the bug net.....can leave the UQ attached to the Hammy and the TQ/SB in place and un-hook from the trees and stuff the whole thing into ??? whatever you want... For setup is just reverse and ready to get comfy in 30 sec.
