    OK...I just got my first hammock (WBBB) yesterday from the "For Sale" section on this wonderful site. Got the Superfly too.

    My question would be: when the fly is wet and I stuff it in the bag the fly came with, all of the excess moisture will seep out of the bag (bag not waterproof) onto my backpack (even if I bungee it on the outside), how does everyone deal with a wet fly in the mesh snake skins?

    I'm going to try using fishnet stockings for snake skins when my Superfly arrives. Anyone try this yet?

    Not the lightest solution, but more durable than panty hose. In my experience, Velcro and the male side of any hook-and-loop is to hosiery what Deet is to Nylon: aggressive, tenacious, and damaging. Even more expensive panty hose.

    For large mesh laundry bag: Cheap and available retail source of such is your Dollar Store, where they may also come in blue and in green. But not, to my knowledge in camo. Note that this polyester mesh, unlike the stuff of stockings, does not stretch.

    (And, in further thread drift, (or should your SM be broken): Those mesh laundry bags are great for very airy quilt storage.)
