I suppose I should have created 2 threads, one for each question, but here goes (I have a Claytor Jungle Hammock and Fly):
1) Should I have a spreader bar for both ends of the mosquito net? It would seem that I only need one at the head end, but that one at the foot end might be nice but non-essential.
2) Which side do you prefer the hammock zip to be on? The reason for asking this is I need to buy a sleeping bag, so I need to know whether to get a right zip or left zip. I know the hammock can be hung either way, but the sleeping bag can be used only one way. I am right-handed, but I have not actually used the hammock yet, so I don't have a feel for what is 'the right way'. Please reply with your preference, stated as if you were lying on your back in the hammock (i.e. 'right' means the hammock zip is at your right).
