I just got mine and took it to the Hoosier National Forest last Sunday and Monday. I love this hammock! Very comfortable.
Shug, great video---thanks! One question, is the snipe just a gathered end hammock with drawstrings on the sides, or do they do some thing different with the sides? (gather the ends so theres more slack etc) ?
FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )
Do not walk behind me, for I may not lead. Do not walk ahead of me, for I may not follow. Do not walk beside me, either, just leave me alone.
I recieved my Snipe couple of nites ago, and have slept in it for the last 2 nites in the house hung in the living room. I set the ridge line at 109 inches that I had installed, hung a 40 degree down UQ from Underground Quilts, house had thermostate on furnace set at 68 degrees, threw a new 50 degree down TQ from Underground over me and slept like a baby both nites with no leg problems, no nothing,,it was total bliss..all I can say is WOW! What a difference in lay, comfort, and sleep over the WB Traveler 1.7 single. I am super impressed and love this hammock. This is what I have been looking for. I really haven't had time to tweak or play with the RL or anything to find if there is any better sweet spot as where I set it is really the best lay I have ever had in any of the other 3 hammocks I have owned so far. I really think the length has everything to do with my perfect lay in this hammock. I won't get any time to play with this hammock until Sunday,,so will just keep sleeping in it with the way its setup as it rocks just the way it is. This is now my go-to hammock period and very happy with another great product from Wilderness Logics.
Cool deal Acer! Thats being very creative in "tree" selection. Can't wait to see the pics....

Hope to see you on the trail.
Here's the pics from Thursday nites late nite work setup at my Sports Show acct. Snipe hammock with 40 degree UQ and 50 degree TQ by Underground quilts. I left the UQ totally vented that nite and the building got down to about 40 degrees and was totally toasty warm as the our security police that nite was complaining how cold the building got. One of them was a friend of mine that said he considered stealing my TQ as I was snoring quite a bit as he drove by on his golf cart on his routes that nite..lol..I don't stay at a trade show that often,,but this particular show had me working 12 days straight to get it set as its a killer. Show is 350,000 sq ft in 7 buildings at the Indiana State Fairgrounds that runs 10 days straight. Very comfy setup and you could have set a bomb off when I finally crapped out in the hammock as was totally beat. The Snipe totally rocks for me as the most comfortable lay I have ever experienced. Awesome hammock in my opinion.
