    Get the full zip mods from Z2Q2 and you can unzip and stow aay the bug bar when you do not need it.

    I definitely agree with this. Velcro will sop up all that beautiful detritus.

    You can buy a Grand Trunk Ultralight at Campmor for $18. Add some whoopie slings and you're topless-- and light

    Dale Gribble: I'm thinking, "new hammock." For me, laying and swaying in a hammock is like a steady morphine drip without the risk of renal failure.

    Have you checked 2QZQ's prices and compared them to the cost of Velcro?

    Velcro doesn't just grab forest litter but it will snag most everything else (socks, fleece pants, quilts, etc). It's also hard to get lined back up and sealed in the dark. You'll be really pissed off after you answer that 3am call of nature in buggy territory and don't get the netting sealed back up correctly.....waking up covered in welts is not fun. It's also scratchy so dragging a bare leg over velcro isn't much fun either (another reason I got rid of the slash opening).

    I've got the 2QZQ mod and love it. I would have let them sew up the slot entry but zippers can fail. I'd rather not be stuck in my hammock and have to rip the netting because a little piece of plastic broke.

    +1 on getting the cheap parachute hammock for "topless" hanging. I've got a castaway parachute hammock coming from STP ($13 and change with coupon). That will be my son's play hammock or my topless hanger. I think that's a lot cheaper/easier than hacking up my HH.

    Save the the money and do the mod, sew a zipper yourself, or get another hammock.

    Haven't actually done it myself, just spitballin...
    If you are looking to DIY and keep prices down, you can probably pick up a slleeping bag at a garage sale for next to nothing and use the zipper from it and get the material for an UQ in the bargain. The UQ mightn't be the latest and greatest but it would be cheap, errr, inexpensive!
