    Mod suggestion (to 2q and zq)

    This might have been discussed before, but I couldn't find it with a search, so I thought I would ask. Have you ever considered offering an option of replacing the stock Hennessy velcro closure with a better one, rather than just sewing it up? I get aggravated with my Hennessy velcro grabbing my baselayer or sock when I get in. Does Omnitape or some other type of hook and loop reduce this problem? I noticed you had a bunch of extra omnitape from doing other mods. I'm not sure I would send my hammock just to get this done, but I would certainly consider paying extra for the upgrade if I were getting a bug net mod or doors. Just a thought.

    We hear the same complaint with Omnitape as with velcro.... maybe not as much as hook and fuzz velcro but the nature of that type of closure system is somewhat prone to sticking to things and needing cleaned occasionally. Not much help I know. Sorry.
