Did you get it? Who has it? I'm all excited
OK mbcruzin it's on its way to you! PM sent with tracking #
I have no pics as I did not get to go to the FL Hang and then only got to set it up inside. But I have to say it is one well made piece of gear. I really liked the inside pockets as an extra perk to it's design and the double layer was easy to slide a pad into. It was pretty handy also how the ridge line is adjustable without having to get out of the hammock. Really SWEET! I also put my UQ on it and it fit with no problem. The suspension is bomb proof, although way too beefy for me but a heavier person would never have to worry about it failing.
The tarp I did not deploy of course but I did take it out and looked at it. One thing I have to note is it is not the 10X12 cat cut as decribed in the first post but the 10X13 diamond tarp. Still a nice tarp and I like diamond tarps in summer when it's hot for extra air circulation.

I'll echo L.D. Cakes and others who have expounded on the quality of the workmanship. I recently ordered/received a brand new 1.1 DL Switchback. Finally was able to hang it earlier this week and give it a good once over as well as lay in it. Don't know if it was beginner's luck or what, but it seemed dialed in on the first try. Very comfortable going straight down the middle or on a diagonal. Wife was a bit skeptical, but gave it a try anyway. Boy, was she surprised at the comfort. My three daughters tried it on for size too, and were all smiles. For good measure, got to try out the bug net as some mosquitos were buzzing about. None of the bloodsuckers got through the netting or the hammock fabric. Whole rig is easy to set up and put away. Really like the Bishop style stuff sack. Looks like a button hole sewn in the bottom - thread all the way around - should be able to withstand whoopie deployment without worries of abrasion. Stuff sac holds the entire hammock with ease along with my whoopie slings, tree huggers and 2 carabiners.
Dale has been very easy to work with and answered all questions prior to purchase.
Cheers to TTTG !!
P.S. Please keep me on the Circuit Hike list.
In theory, there's no difference between theory and reality.
In reality, there is.
Yeah I'm in the middle of UMN grad/med school interviews and recruiting, plus it's -5*F right now, so unfortunately I just wasn't going to be able to give the hammock a fair shake. So it's on to you next!
