I'd just tie them on. That way you can slide them up/down the support to accommodate different tarp sizes, wind conditions, etc.

IMPOSSIBLE JUST TAKES LONGER
Question for the current Ridgerunner owners.
I'm about to get in on the deal for the no-net version and now I'm deciding between the single and double. I currently have a downmat that I was planning on using between layers for this winter until I could save up for a 0° quilt. But, I fall within the weight limits of the single and if I can cut the weight I'd like to. The question is would it still be comfortable/stable with the downmat inside of the single? From my one experience lying in the hammock briefly, I know it's pretty shallow compared to other hammocks.
Thanks for the help!
The second layer on the ridgerunner is somewhat "loose", allowing the pad to sit a bit below you, and not raise you up so much. I've used a Downmat 7 in my Ridgerunner double layer, and it still significantly lifted me up, despite the extra give you get from the second layer. I would be comfortable using some other pads inside of a single layer, but definitely NOT the downmat. It's just too thick. For the three ounce difference, if you have any intention of using the downmats, I'd definitely stick with the dual-layer.
Another upside of the dual layer is that, for hot weather where you aren't using under-insulation, the double layers help prevent mosquito bite-through.
Aha, just the insight I was looking for. And good point about the double layers for mosquitos later on. Mucho gracias, sir. This and the spindrift should make for a fun winter.
Now just need to devise a way of attaching a net down the road.
Thanks for the info!
Now for the Spindrift, if/when it comes out in multicam, it will be made from 1.9 versus the usual 1.1 (guessing). Will that make it significantly less breathable and perhaps cause more condensation on the inside?
