I was planning on a diy hammock and just hadn't found the right material
for it yet close to me. Just happend to check out wilderness logics website
over thanksgiving and they were running some pretty good deals so I ordered
one of the lite owls for not much more than I would have spent on diy setup.
I put some eyebolts in the wall so I could try it out and was thinking that
it might take awhile to get used to sleeping in a hammock but I have been
sleeping great every night for the last couple weeks in it.
Have been impressed with the quality of the hammock also and can't wait to
use it on my bikepacking trip of the colorado trail this summer. I think a good nights sleep during this adventure will really be important in being able to
make to the end. Just need to get a tarp and I'll have my sleep system
at around 3lbs complete I hope.
Sure am glad to have all the info of this site to help this newbie out.
