    I have a set coming today. I don't plan on them lasting long for that reason, but we'll see.

    Lights for Structural Ridge Line

    I've packed and unpacked mine a few times without any issues so far. The one thing I did was to add some heat shrink tubing at the very end... there were some exposed wires that I was worried would snag my bugnet. I ran my lights for 4-5 hours last weekend with seemingly no impact to my battery pack (4/4 bars both before & after).

    Same here. They wrap nicely around the ridgeline. Batteries are cheap and these last a long time so I just run them around dark til bedtime. But I've found it just attracts bugs under the tarp...even in late December on a 52 day. This may become a true winter-only item going forward.

    Am I understanding this? Do you use these lights on your ridgeline with the bug net deployed?

    I use the $2 battery operated light that I got from Ikea. Mine are attached to my tarp ridgeline (running underneath tarp) and not the hammock ridgeline.

    No bugnet. I'm rarely out when the bugs are bad enough to need a net.

    That's the best option IMO, but I don't use a single tarp ridgeline.

    The same thing happened to me in my garage one night. I actually fell onto the hood of my wife's car when I got up to go pee in the middle of the night. I think it has to do with having the foot end of the hammock higher. The blood rushes to your head while you sleep. Then when you get up, it all rushes back down. I didn't feel dizzy, but couldn't balance for the life of me.

    I have a string of lights wrapped around my hammock ridgeline, which is under the integrated bugnet. They DO attract bugs if they're on. The last time I used them, the underside of my tarp was fairly well covered with insects... so I have to choose when to flip the switch.
