Great review Shug! That snipe looks mighty comfy! Like the idea of the shock cords, hate having my sleeping bag fall out, tried sleeping in a GT ultralight, had a hard time sleeping, kept thinking I was falling out! Dig the boomerang, haven't played with one of those in years. Good idea chucking it on the lake, something to do while icefishing!
Boomerang is perfect on an icy lake! Yes...the Snipe truly is.

Worth a looky-see for sure.

I've only test two or three gathered end hammocks, but I've never been in one that lays anywhere near that flat.
Can you see anything in particular in that design that makes it so bloody flat? Where's the magic?
I think the magic is in the length.

Maybe, just maybe.
Travelers seek Snipes.

More than likely on a Trip Report video.......

I still can't see any real difference between a $100 Traveler and a $20 GTUL - but the Snipe is really cool. Never even considered WL for a hammock because their site didn't do nearly as clear of job of explaining the features as this video does. Now I might. They need to put you on the payroll Shug.

Worth a look for sure if looking for a simple open top hammy.....
