    Such as? I can't think of any situation where it would be nicer for me. Of course I agree, it's a matter of preference. For me a top loader is just soooo much more convenient for just about anything such as laying out things inside it, exit/entry and just reaching out to retrieve something I've forgotten. I love to hang out with a drink by the fire and set my drink on the ground.....pretty tough to do in a bottom entry. I could go on...

    Accessibility from inside the hammock is an issue with the HH-style closed top, not necessarily the bottom entry itself. I do agree - I like to be able to get to stuff...I sit in my hammock to cook, for instance. Then again, the closed top also has its advantage - complete bug protection.

    As far as a situation in which having a bottom entry would be helpful, I was thinking of some of the more hairy sites one might have to deal with. If there's a lot underbrush or medium- to large-sized rocks around (unavoidable, of course), hanging higher and using a bottom entry would definitely be the way to go. Just a example.

    Neo, I saw on a thread that you listed the price of your jungle hammock at $70.
    Was that because you did not get a fly?
    I know how you love your Sportsman guide tarp, but did you try the 10x13 tarp that the Claytor site mentions?

    I'm wondering this myself.

    What material is the Claytor stock fly?


    Neo, do you use the 9x9 or the 12x12 Sortsman?
