I get the same thing with my Claytor. You think you need the zipper undone further than you really do to exit. Since it's a long hammock it's hard to reach the sucker once you're back inside.
Can't wait to get my Blackbird. Thanks for the report, Troll. Though I was, until now, waiting patiently.
I do that all the time with my Claytor. I find that when you initially sit down in the hammock upon entering, you can actually pull both ends of the zipper somewhat toward the center. This makes it much easier to reach when reclining.
