    Dutchware Chameleon bugnet zipper pulls

    Just got my Dutchware Chameleon and the bugnet it has black pulls on one side of zipper and reflective on the other. Which do you put on inside/outside and why? Right now I'm thinking of putting the reflective to the outside to make it easier to find for getting in the hammock seeing as how reflective does no work that well up close if looking for pulls while in the hammock. Just looking to see if I'm overthinking this or is there something that I am not thinking about.

    Thanks

    I had some ReflectIt cordage in multiple colors, I put yellow pulls on the inside and blue on the outside of the bug net. I capped those off with the glow in the dark pull tabs from Dutch. You canít read by their light, but they can be seen until morning.

    It helps me when trying to find the pull when in the hammock and which pull to use when I zip up after my nightly walk to the closest tree.

    I have reflective side in the hammock so I can find the zipper when I want to get out in the middle of the night. You could do one in and one out and cover all bases.

    Dang Shug, you so smart! LOL never dawned on me that I could move them around. Seeing as I pretty much always enter on one side I may just move all the reflective to that side.

    Jeepmaxx, quantum physics aside, my guess is you are either inside or outside the hammock so you need some "find me" reflection cord for both cases. I'm not sure what you mean by "... move all the reflective to that side." and I don't know if the Chameleon zipper setup. But if I had only two reflective zipper pulls and I didn't want to buy more from REI or one of our cottage vendors, then - assuming you have a pull tab on both the inside and outside of the zipper, I'd put one on one of the inside pull and one on the outside pull. That way, with a light, whether inside or outside the hammock, youcould see one of the tabs, and the other would surely be nearby.
    In order to see what few have seen, you must go where few have gone. And DO what few have done.
