OK, I know to use the drip lines. I was careless and forgot and got wet. ( full story in my PeaPod review).
I added some nylon cords hanging down from the webbing, but I'm not sure that stopped the water completely. Though it helped.
I have never had this problem with my HH. I think that's because I use snake skins over the ropes, and because when I tighten up the RL, it is more level than using my Speer without a RL, like I was today. So I have a steeper line for water to run down. I am going to add the snake skins. I may or may not go back to a structural RL.
Any way, just looking for any general tips on stopping water down the webbing on a stock Speer. I know, change the suspension to ring buckle. But what worked best before this approach? What makes the best drip line?
