    Hi there BlazeAway,

    I’ll buy one of those tarps when they come in more of a low profile color. You’ve got all the good gear, BlazeAway, verrrry nice! I spotted quite a few things that I’d like to add to my collection. That heat escape problem you talked about happens with 3 out of 4 of my hammocks (doesn't happen with the JRB, BMBH). It’s most noticeable when I lay on my back, legs straight and straight inline with the ridgeline. It is also noticeable if I lay on my side with my legs curled up. Positioning my legs to one side of the centre, completely fixes the problem (WBBB foot box for example). Heavy gauge shock cord on the suspension system and more tension than you would think necessary, reduces the problem quite a bit.

    Anyway BlazeAway, I enjoyed your “what’s in my pack” personal tour, thanks for posting it and I hope to see another video from you real soon!

    Nice Video Blaze, and welcome back. thanks.

    Any reason you don't leave the ridgeline connected to the tarp?

    I've been hanging it like you, but it occurred to me that I might as well just leave the ridgeline connected and hang it as one. I'll definitely do that once my snakeskins turn up.

    Good video Blaze.
    Man, that is some NICE gear for sure.
    I like all the light that cuben tarp lets in.

    I loved looking at those fallen damp leaves on the ground....Whooooo Buddy.
    As to the DutchFly....I find mine almost too small and if I have to move it I need my reading glasses. But it always holds. The edges on mine seem smooth though. But they were from an early batch.
    Since I use a 2/3 UQ I have never had the hammock ridge issue. Is it a full length UQ issue! I suppose so. Maybe a draft collar would be a cure.
    Love my HG cuben too. They are super light. But I know what you mean about a smaller Edge-Type tarp. My little black tarp misses going to the woods with me.
    I enjoyed watching this morning after a long night.

    Yes!!!! It may be just my computer....both the voice and film stutter greatly. The only way I can get it to run smoothly is to start the film then immediately pause it for a while. After I hit the start icon again it will run smoothly.

    I have no problems with other video sources such as youtube etc....only Vimeo. Can anyone suggest a solution to this problem since Vimeo is used by many.
