    Switchback Light Hiker fans

    who all has one? Real close to pulling the trigger. Not a lot of reviews out there. Looking for people's long term reviews and such. Pics in use would be nice too.

    Ordered a light hiker today. Hopefully will have it in the next week or so. Full review and pics coming. I've researched this pretty intensely and I'm looking forward to taking delivery of this core piece of gear.

    Can't speak for the light hiker but love the Switchback. Looking forward to your review.

    Took delivery today. Some teaser shots. I won't get to really mess with it till this evening. This whole weekend is crazy with a mtb trip to hills and such so I won't have more pics until Sunday or so. So far, I'm ecstatic!

    Always a good day when you get a box from TTTgear!


    Glad I didn't cut too deep in the box!


    Wrapped up in a nice silnylon stuff sack


    All you need is included, ready to hang!

    I messed around this evening and swapped out the stock tree straps with some AHE ones which are slightly narrower and got the overall weight to 29.1 oz. After looking over this hammock a bit, it's built like a tank. Construction and attention to detail are amazing. Can't wait to get out in the NC woods with it. Kudos to Dale and Co.!
