    Welcome to the best "Hammock People" forum around. A
    Great Choice in your first hammock too! Very well made and the most versatile I looked at.

    You will find everyone here is excited about being helpful and very interested in your success.

    Only changes I made was in the suspension system (Triangle cinch strap) from Warbonnet Outdoors and want to sew velcro to close up the pad slot better. I have not had pad slippage (As some have reported) but I suppose how "sticky" and width of the pad are determining factors.

    Let us know what you think graffixx808!

    Then you will need a large tarp to go with those hammocks. Maybe a kayak after that, then...

    It is cheaper than collecting like fine pistols, rifles or shotguns...
