    You are right! Actually, I uploaded them to a sort gallery that did not allow external links. That is cured.

    Both of the photos above show the quality of work.

    This shot shows the left side fully unzipped and tied back for ease of entry: It was hard to get a decent photo since the wind was 20-25 MPH at the time!

    Also, although they aren't very visible, the hammock was hanging between two Bois D'Arc trees that are about 3 feet in diameter!



    As I stated previously, the work is first class and I'm extremely pleased with the mod.
    They are showing up fine now.

    Any idea how much weight is added to the hammock with a full zip mod with the net completely removed?

    One complaint I have with a Hennessy is you can't use a hammock sock with it in the cold, this would certainly solve that problem

    3.7oz of added weight.

    Wouldn't some of that weight stay on the removed net?

    I did not know 2Questions wife was doing a completely removable net. I just thought that it unzipped 3/4 of the way and then was tied back.

    That's correct. The net gets secured on the one side not zippered.

    Thumbs up HH Bugnet Zip Mod

    Received my HH back today with the full size and half side mod. Fabulous workmanship without a doubt! Can't wait to get this out on a trip! Thanks for the tremendous work on this

    Glad to see the continued positive reviews. I have three hammocks in to 2Q for the full zipper mod (1 ExplorerUL and 2 Scouts) and can't wait to get 'em back!

    I got my ULBA back from 2Q and the ZQ today and I can't express how impressed I am with the quality of the work on this mod. ZQ's stitching looks as good or better than the factory stitching. It's like I got a new hammock

    I had been wanting to add a zipper to my HH for a long time but I just never never seemed to be able to find the time with all the other projects on my To Do list. It would have taken me probably 3-4 hours to complete and would not have looked nearly as good as ZQ's work.


    EDIT:

    I just hit 3,000 posts baby!!!!
