Got my WBBBXLC 2 days ago. Yesterday was spent figuring out how to pack it in a protected manner. Motorcycle camping can be hard on gear. Couple of stuff sacks from REI and we're all sorted out.
Picked up a $99 hammock stand at Home Depot, too. First try this morning had me hanging on the crossbar on the floor. Another trip to HD for a couple 6 foot fence posts and we are sorted.
Ridgeline is taught, not tight.
Sides tied out nicely.
Exped inflatable sleeping matt slid between the layers perfectly.
Draped an El Cheapo Alps Mountaineering sleeping bag over me for this test in the garage. Temp in here is right around 45 degrees, bag is rated to 40, so working well.
Been in the hammock for about 30 minutes now...
Bit of pressure on my heels, so I need to move around a bit.
Neck is a bit strained due to my pillow, which I have folded double, so this is curable.
One of the dogs farted, so the mesh is working perfectly...
Extra steel posts/extensions and sundry mounting bits. Web suspension was super easy to work with and has so far not moved a mm with my 6 feet of height and 277 pounds hauling on it.
The camping rig in the background...
The view inside, over my head, towards my feet.
Its now been 45 minutes. Typing on a tablet is slow... lol
I'm actually getting cold, so need to wrap the sleeping bag over my torso soon. Neck strain is gone, heels more comfy as I've moved around a bit.
Stand is still rock solid. Next test... a nap... Ta ta for now...!
