    Guess I forgot to put the slash when I put the material in the product information section. I thought that it was material weight, another thing to talk about in the FR though! This seems like it will be a great resource, another way to procrastinate!!!

    Sophie - that didn't take too long - welcome!

    Looking forward to your reports.

    You all (kwpapke included) do a great job on BackPack Gear Test. Excellent resource on gear. It's like asking a hiking buddy what they think of their piece of gear.

    Thanks all for their time and dedication!

    Welcome to the site Sophie!

    My advise is to take it a piece at a time. If only I had listened to myself when I started. I was trying new suspensions, pads, tarps, and sleeping bags, before I came here for the first time. My first couple of trips in the wild were a little rocky and probably had lots to do with me trying to dial in so many different aspects. I was really dieing to replace my tent though. I still have some issues to work out but when things go right I am rewarded with the only way I have ever slept through till morning in the woods. On the ground the best I ever did was two or three hours before something was frozen, tingling, aching, or numb and woke me up. The only way I ever slept all night was on night three from total exhaustion.

    Congrats on the new purchase! I hope you get it all dialed in and enjoy it much as we do around here.

    Word of warning.... this place is a money sink, there is always some new gadget someone is showing off that calls to you. My wife hates this site.

    I enjoyed your initial report. BGT is a tremendous resource, and we owe that to all the tester's time and efforts. Thanks and best of luck with your test.

    I find that I get a flatter lay when there is a little sag in the ridge line, before the hammock is weighted.

I still haven't figured out all this stuff.
    I'm not alone! I must've watched those videos a couple dozen times each and I'm still not sure how to set up the underpad! Haven't had my first hang yet, so time will tell.

    Welcome Spohie and thanks for all the great reviews. I purchased my JetBoil based on your sites reviews and am thrilled with it!

    Keep up the good work

    Welcome Sophie! Glad to have you here. This is a great place to learn and to post about your hammocking adventures. Thanks for posting your comments on BackpackGearTest. That's one of my favorite sites. Have fun with your Blackbird. There's a big group of people here in that cult -- myself included.
