    Lol... I had added a whole extra loop of shock cord. Now I feel dumb. KISS! Thanks.

    I love my tubes, and if there's a bulk penalty it's so negligible the convenience makes me not even think about that.

    I just bought an Exped waterproof compression bag size L to stuff it in. I know it's not necessary, but to just shove the whole slug into the backpack leaves a fair amount of air in it. I actually managed to get it into a size M as well - 19 litres - with the uq and tq, but it was a bit of work. I thought to myself that in the field you'd be fighting a lot with it, so I bought a L since the whole idea of them is to compress.

    Just got a Lazy Slug Tube today...

    Does anyone roll their slugs instead of stuffing them? Several recent threads about these slugs have peaked my interest.

    For the first time this weekend, I rolled my whole setup inside my Fronkey style tulle bugnet. I wrapped it with the suspension cords, then stuffed the bundle into the dry bag that I had brought only the top & under quilts.

    All in all, it worked reasonably well considering I didn't have the right equipment.

    When I got that picture of it rolled up, I proceeded to try stuffing it into my pack. It didn't like that so much. It's, surprisingly, more unruly rolled up. Goes in and packs easier when it's just... a slug, not a snail. XD

    you gotta stuff a slug.
    I use Dutchbiners to attach my hammock to my whopies, so I keep the drawstring (small end) clipped through the Dutchbiners.
    Clipping the drawstring helps keep the ends of my hammock from slipping into the LST.
    I leave the drawstrings fairly loose to allow the air to evacuate.
    I usually keep my tree straps and whopies in a separate mesh bag stuck into a mesh side pocket of my pack.
    I also larks head a couple of 4" continuous loops around the head end drawstring for quick id.
    LSTs are always a part of my hammocks.

    I ordered a pair based on the comments in this thread. They came in yesterday. I'm very impressed. They really do make set up and pack up so quick. It stuffs into the bottom of my pack very easily and takes up surprisingly little space.
    So far, I'm loving them.

    First time doing a Google search lead me directly to the tread I needed to readI am a lazy man at heart and after a long hike the thought of setting up using slugs seems great. I've gotten a UQ protector from 2QZQ and wonder how it will fit into the mix.

    UQP is no problem at all, everything that you would normally use with your hammock setup will fit fine. Minus the tarp of course.

    Thanks for posting the pics.

    Are you guys setting your hammocks up at home with quilt etc, then throwing the slug on so its all ready for the trail? I can't imagine you can leave the whole setup together for long periods between trips as stuff would need to air out.
