    exactly.

    i always laugh as i see many on this forum endlessly jump from one product to another. or get wrapped up in every little technical aspect of what's just a simple sleep system. or go overboard on gadgets.

    my TTTG switchback and tarp gets a lot of use kayak camping and x-c hiking.
    the hammock is comfortable and durable.
    and it came with whoopies.
    i got the straps and beeners separately.
    the tarp is as good as any on the market.

    as far as my gear needs are concerned, there's no need to look elsewhere.

    Love my Switchback - I believe it was Shane in Texas that described it as "Hanging Nirvana"
    I can't think of a better description!

    Suspension is optional

    It came with straps, but they must be bought as an extra option. I personally like the idea. I do not like whoopies, they are not simple enough (whoopies and tree huggers, with straps it is all in same package).

    Of course one can think it is a way to make the price bit higher, but I think it is a way to serve Your customer by selling what one wants not what You think is the best option.

    Thanks...I agree

    I don't like to pay for something that I don't want or need.

    Do you like this better than your BB?

    I do not know yet

    I do not know yet. There are few problems with BB (I have two of them by the way and two quilt sets) which I think are solved with SB.

    - I like the idea of symmetry. At some places BB can not be hanged optimally for view or ground or both because of the asymmetrical design. Sometimes it would be nice to get in from both sides, or keep gear at other side and use the other side for going in and out and cooking for example.

    - As I said I try to build a system as good on ground as hanged. With SB I do not need extra bug net for ground use. (I think)

    - With BB there is usually some fiddling to do when using pad or two pads for under insulation. And sometimes that must be done even during night. It seems that with SB pads are easier to place and they probably stay at the right position without fiddling. With UQ BB is excellent, but UQ can not be used on ground.

    - I hope the view is better from SB. There is no view in BB when zipper is closed.

    But I have not used SB enough to be sure yet. Hopefully within this winter...

    (First thing I will test tomorrow after work day is the upside down SB, if that works it will be the one of the best features ever.)
