It came today! :thumb up:
Or should I say, they came today. I invested two of them at the Kickstarter over year ago.
It is smaller than I expected.
Workmanship is mostly good. All the necessary seams were sealed, but for example zipper was hard to open because the sealant had glued the zipper flap closed. But this is their first batch product. And I'm very happy that the sealing has been done already. Nobody likes to seal seams. So
First I went in without any insulation.
Very comfortable and roomy. I'm 6,3 foot long (193 cm) and weight 246 lbs (112 kg). Sorry for bad pic.
Next I did got my Wiggy's Ground pads, because I was getting Chilly. We have -15 C (5 F) currently. Here is a my review about these pads. https://www.hammockforums.net/forum/...ad.php?t=85971
Another shaken image...
Two Wiggy's Ground pads zippered together is a perfect match for the Alpine hammock.
There is a flap to close the ventilation at the apex of the hammock. Then one can see netting rolled to the side. No use for insect netting during winter time. Those small ears are the Origami ventilation closures.
Sorry again for the image quality.
Weather cover closed.
Easy system to hang - and unhang. I will roll the hammock up with sleeping bag and ground pads inside tomorrow morning when I wake up. That would not be possible if I was using air mattress. I will left webbings on their place and put the actual sleeping system behind locked door to my bicycle shed. This will test if condensation will accumulate after repeated use without drying sleeping bag or hammock inside.
I'll be back tomorrow!
