    Peapod attachment mod

    I have always hated tying the knots to attach my pods. Difficult to get the tension just right. So, I did the following...

    Grosgrain loops attached along the seam on each side on both ends in the unstuffed area. One side on each end has a cord tensioner. I used shock cord for my cord.
    It can then be clipped to a mini biner with prussick.

    Or just hung over the knot on a gathered end hammock.
    The adjustment is so easy now and attachment takes only seconds without having to tie the knots. The cinch cords are easily tied to seal or vent the ends as needed.

    One added bonus for me is it seems like the top drapes into the hammock more since the tension for attachment is on the sides.

    Gentle raindrops and mighty oceans...neither can exist without the other.
    Time heals all wounds...but it usually leaves a pretty big scar.
