    roched again!

    roched-when u are influenced into a purchase.
    on this weekends hang Black Wolf gave me the demo of the Snipe hammock. I went to the website and punched the button. The first hammock on the market that allows adjustment of the lay while still in the haammock-too good to be true? How about a gathered in hammock that allows stomach lay? I wouldn't have believed it either but I saw Black Wolf lying fetal and on his stomach. But at the site I saw the double layer model and chose it. Time will tell.

    Here I figured it was where your wallet got torn apart by the awesomeness of the hammocks Roche limit !

    Anyway, keep us posted. That hammock sure does look nice! Thanks for sharing the video over in the Florida hang thread.

    The only reason that I have not pushed that same button several days ago is being unable to decide between the double layer Lite Owl and the single layer Snipe. Marty at WL e-mailed me back and said ther was no dif in comfort with the 3, and all have the adjustment feature. If that is the case, it only cost $20 and 1.5 oz to get the double layer for another 25 lb weight rating ( 225 vs 250) and the ability to use a pad though I really never do that except rarely with the BMBH.

    course, $20 is $20 and even 1.5 oz counts. I am under that 225 but not by a whole lot, especially with winter clothing and quilts.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    BillyBob--glad we have the same thought logic progression.
    and unlike some here I do plan on a ground B option whenever out there so I have that pad. The weight penalty of 1.5 ounces to lock that pad in between is a precious small price to pay in my opinion. Like I said (and thanks FLRider it is on the video), seeing Black Wolf dial it in was very nice--better than watching on vid.
    Now I'll tell you guys something straight up. A friend/fellow hanger/and in the business already (quilts) is also working on a mod for me and it will also address the foot box or lack there of on a favorite gathered end hammock of mine--different approach though---you know, the many ways to skin the cat. I'm looking forward to receiving both and comparing the two methods....so good to have options-one thing I love about the hammocksport.

    I love mine. My go to hammock for 3 season. I also can lay on my stomach.

    I don't think it's just the foot box that makes it comfortable. I really think it's the length of the hammock. Just about perfect for me. The foot box only makes a slight difference in that it helps to keep my feet from poping out of the hammock!

    MM, one thing - I don't think it will work as well as your Traveler inside your Peapod. Walls are pretty high.

    Let us know how you like it when you get yours.

    Sidewinder-noted on the PeaPod, thanks. Luckily its just a few times/year I use my pod since it has been super tricked out for the super extreme.
    What I'm more curious about is how asym I can get in it and still use the Snugfit. Use with the standard 2/3 3/4 uqs is a given I know.

    Wilderness Logics knows how to make a comfy hammock by focusing away from the standard "cookie cutter" hammock lengths available today. That added length is the way to go in my opinion... I have tried several other brands, but the Lite Owl is the one hanging in my garage to enjoy daily!

    And where does the term "Roched" come from? I don't get it.
