    First time Hanger long time... sleeper?

    I slapped up my WBBB 1.1dbl and had my first night outdoors in it a couple nights back. Snowy, rainy, windy... and oh so dry and comfortable! Good bye tents, I hope to never rely on your stiff hard and uncomfortable sheltering again...

    lay a few stripes of silicon(e) on the back of the SPE, it will provide some 'grip' against the nylon hammock.

    Silicone caulk from the tube. Same stuff you use for windows or tubs.
    Drizzle a few rows and smear it into the bottom fabric of the spe. A little dab'll do ya.
    If you need more (after it dries and you test it) add some more.
    The silicone will leave a nice sticky area and grip the hammock better.

    nice

    Great idea, I will have to give this a shot. Tonight I am placing the SPE between my layers in the dbl hammock, as well as deflating the pad completely. I will see how this goes Tomorrow I may end up caulking
