My now 10-year-old son loves to go camping with me and when he heard me talking about getting a hammock for MY birthday in April he decided that's what he wanted for HIS birthday this month. Based on recommendations from this forum I got him a Hennessy Scout Zip.
Now I am a TOTAL Newb so anything I know I learned from this forum. We tried hanging it for the first time this afternoon in 30 degree weather. I used the quick hang method with the carabiner and repel rings (that I learned from this forum).
I have attached pics below and would love your feedback. I had him try hanging in it in both directions because he said the ridges hurt his calves but he seemed to get more comfortable lying the other direction. Keep in mind he was laying directly on the hammock with no pad or sleeping bag. Again, I would appreciate any pointers if I have an angle wrong or something like that. Thanks!!
