    My wife's new trail lair

    I have been more than happy with my Trail Lair and I have found that hanging under one tarp using a spreader is 100X easier to set up if both of the hammocks are identical so I decided to surprise my wife with one on our last outing. She is not one to hide in the woods so we went with 1.6 HyperD in bright pink. and along with that added a blue Wooki to keep her nice and warm.
    Jared contacted me immediately and said regrettably that there was no thread that matched the pink and no complimentary colors either, what a great guy. I assured him that matching is not my wife's goal and the louder the better, she will be happy no matter what color the thread color. He even added a nice loud piece in the top corner of the head end.

    In a couple days the new pillow from Loco Libre will be here in neon yellow and she will be living back in the 80's.

    As usual with items from Jared it was early and we are happy.

    Very nice! I think the yellow actually complements the pink well. It's about as close as you'll come to a true complementary color to the pink.

    I have a new Streamliner out for delivery today, so I'm looking forward to that. Working with Jared is always super-easy, as anyone who has will attest.

    I love the color combo. I am slowly embracing bright colors instead of the stealth-y colors. Would love it if my hubby gave me such a beautiful hammock.

    Your wife is fortunate to have such a thoughtful hubby.

    I'm usually not a fan of bright colors, but if it helps get your wife out in the woods, anything goes. I like that stitching detail Jared did with the contrasting fabric and the color is kind of growing on me.

    From one Trail Lair owner (actually my second) I give it a thumbs up.

    Yes the Wooki fits any similar length hammock. You just have to add a small piece of cordage to the end of the quilt for a proper fit on the Trail Lair. When you lay in the hammock the Wooki rubber band should stretch a bit.

    Amazing! And the 80's are totally in in the fashion world this fall. Guess she doesn't have to worry about hunters in that!

    I love it. I have both stealth and happy colours. Happy colours are my great joy on grey days.

    You are a wise person, make your wife happy and your life is significantly easier.

    I love everything about Simply Light Designs.
