    Does the Traveler have a head/foot end?

    I'm curious: does it matter in which direction I lie in the Traveler? Is there a head end? In case it matters: I have 1.7 DL Traveler.

    Doesn't matter in the least.

    There is no dedicated head or foot end...
    You can lay any direction you want in the traveler...

    The foot end on my Traveler is what ever one I set about 8" to 10" higher than the other and the Adjustable Webbing on that end is set short too. Love my Traveler and now cold has made the no netting possible it will be getting out in the woods more, great hammock.
    Mark is the name and If there is more than one way to understand what I just said....I meant the good one.

    Well for me it does but it has nothing to do with the hammock itself.
    I tend to have my head end up an inch or so. I like to drain the lymph fluid
    out of the legs while I'm sleeping.

    Thanks; I thought I had read somewhere that the ends are whipped differently. Must have been another hammock then.
