Sweet Mike. With the SL 1.1 you could have around a 10oz hammock. Wish I was light enough to go that route. I assume that you got the straps/line for suspension, or did you splurge on a full webbing suspension?
Hey Cannibal, what option did you end up ordering for your Traveler?
I've never seen a HH in person, so maybe one of you can help me... why is it that the undercover can't be used with a CCF (which is what the HH website says)?
I suppose you could try to trim the ccf to fit, but it's pretty stiff. Hanging a pad underneath the hammock is a little different than having a pad pocket or putting the pad inside with you - it's not going to come up against you tightly enough to be warm. The open cell foam the SS comes with conforms better.
Or, maybe Mr. H wants your money...
Ok, decided to purchase the HH ULBP from Koala, who shot me an excellent price on it. I would like to make one, but between now and our trip I just don't have time, plus the mosquito is our state bird, so I would have to finagle some sort of bug net. Then there's the tarp, none of which are cheap.
BTW, I know there are multiple ways to alter the HH suspension, and I know that I could go spend hours reading them all, but if I'm spoiled on the BB webbing/buckle suspension, is there any particular one which would be more appropriate? I've seen the JRB tri-glides, but they seem kind of pricey.
My Hennessys are rigged very similar to the BBs. I just cut the stock line, tie a loop in the end, attach the rings-webbing-biners and away I go!
REI is the easiest place to get the rings and I like OWF for the webbing (woodland camo; polyester). Just order a roll of it and never worry about webbing again. I just cut the last of my roll last night, very sad.
Course, you could always beg warbonnetguy for some extra suspensions. I don't know if he's selling them individually or not, but it's a possibility. Then you get those nice lightweight tri-rings and from what he tells me, his webbing is a touch lighter than the OWF stuff too.
