    RR Double Layer

    I received my ridge runner today! Only, it wasn't what I ordered. I had initially gotten in touch w/ Warbonnetguy about a blem'd double layer as it was really on sale. Then the black friday sale came online and I sent an email opting for a single layer. Fast forward to today and the hammock is here! After some poking around, I noticed it had an extra slip of fabric under it. Hark? A double layer? Surely not. But it was, so oh well. I can't tell if it's the original blem I ordered or not, but I'm happy with it! It's well made for sure. As for weight, it's a little heavy, but lighter than I had expected. With the adjustable webbing susp, poles in the stuff sack it weighs 35.8oz, that's also some condensation from the humidity on it as well. Like the bottom of it makes my hand wet when I run it along the fabric. The cloud burst tarp weighs 17.5oz in the stuff sack. I ordered 100ft of zing it as well as a dutch hook and a dutch fly to make a continuous ridge line in accordance with the video that Dejoha posted. The other 70 feet of line are for the tie outs on the tarp. I will also be using the Titanium stakes I ordered off here to stake the tarp down. After I receive my dutch gear I'll take a weekend trip and post a report. I don't have an UQ yet, but since I ended up with a DL, I can use my big agnes air core and the hot spot I ordered from REI as insulation. Here are a couple of hasty, and consequently terrible pictures I took when I first hung it this morning.

    No such thing as a "terrible picture" of a hammock.

    By the way, did you have a snooze? How did it feel?

    I slept in it out in the garage last night and night before last. Monday night was great, the temps were in the 50s and I was comfortable wearing some poly tights and a long sleeve tee with my 20 degree bag over top. I used my deflated air core in the pad pocket. I actually got too hot with the 20 degree bag over top of me and had to take it off for a while. Last night we got frost. Despite my puffer shirt, sweats and tights with wool socks on with the 20 degree bag and the air core + reflectix pads under, my back got cold and I had to retreat at 0500. Disappointing, but the hammock was not to blame. That thing is so comfortable and the DL really does make it more versatile despite the weight penalty in my opinion. I can't say enough about it.

    OK my RR arrived yesterday so I got to hang it up and try it for only and hour or so before it got dark. Does anyone know the purpose of small bag of cord Brandon sent with it?

    Yip, drip cords, especially for the shock cords coming off the bug net.
