    Color choice

    Do you guys notice a difference in temperature solely based off of light or dark color in the hammock...

    Only if I'm in the direct sun---which is rare.

    Of folding up a noisy day
    In quiet covers, cool and gray.

    I was wondering the same thing. With the plethora of choices on the DangerBird I was wondering whether a light or a dark color might make some difference on a hot (or cold) day.

    I've never personally seen any difference, but some people report that dark colors help a great deal in drying out things like overcovers, tarps, quilts, etc.

    I know they say darker colors attract mosquitoes more that lighter colors.

    I had not thought about that... That in and of itself makes a white hammock almost seem doable... But i am thinking silver...
