IMPOSSIBLE JUST TAKES LONGER
im all for my SRL. it takes out all my guess work, i hang stuff from it, keeps my bugnet out of my face, i use it to climb out/ reposition sometimes. plus i LOVE me a saggy hammock.
I still have a SRL on my WBBB for the bugnet and to hang gear. I removed it on my Traveler and ENO DN. I use these two for dayhikes so I just need the hammock for short term lounging and sitting. I throw it up quick for a snack break or for lunch and I can eyeball the sag pretty accurately. I just found the SRL getting in the way when sitting up in them.
Thinking of adding a structural ridgeline to my DD.
Finally hit the "sweet spot" for my body when camping about a week ago. Thought I could easily match it by sight when hanging again, but found out last night it's not that easy.
Was up at 2:30AM letting out the head suspension to give more sag & lower my head. Got comfort with that adjustment, but didn't think of measuring the distance for a ridgeline until after I'd stowed the hammock this morning. Next trip I'm taking along something to make a detachable structural ridgeline! (not sure how difficult the bug net on the DD Frontline will make attaching it, but hopefully I can use it to suspend the net, too.)
