    I watched MacEntyre's videos on this hammock and am wondering if you need drip strings attached to the shock cords that hold up the bug net since they extend out beyond tarp coverage? I'm really tempted to order one of these. Looks like a great hammock.

    Hey Pizza,

    I have never had a problem with rain water seeping down the shock cord. I actually hook my SC to the tarp ridge line right at the tarp. Hope this helps.

    Cheers, Dale

    Thanks Dale, hooking to the tarp ridgeline seems like a good idea. I'm thinking of getting one of these for a summer hammock. Seems like it would breathe really well since the bugnet goes down to the edge of the hammock.

    I've never had issue with water running down netting suspension either. I did however mod them. SC > adjustable length dyneema and I clip into hammock suspension right at the tree.

    At the recent FL hang last weekend sandykayak had hers. Several of us had never heard of it and were eager to try it out. The consensus was that it was more comfortable than the Hennessy and the Warbonnet. I was surprised with how flat the lay was and I like the spreader bars on the bug netting. It seemed very nice and I'm half tempted to buy one myself.

    I'll second that! As a side sleeper that tosses & turns, I found Sandykayaks' Switchback to be more comfortable than my WBBB.

    However, hers was the Switchback 1.9DL not the Light Hiker.

    The Light Hiker model is shorter length but the same width as the Original Switchback.
