    Just saw this thanks to the recent post, great book and always great illustrations. I favor the continuous ridge line and was just thinking to myself I needed to see what was our here regarding the over or under option.

    So where is book #2 in the making?

    Has anybody considered the Nubč from Sierra Madre Research, Ive really been looking into them considering i don't have a bug net. http://www.sierramadreresearch.com/p...mmock-shelter/
    I currently own an ENO "profly" i think? Im not sure of the name.
    I missed the kickstarter for it and it doesn't come out until February but thats just in time for next springs starting season! Thoughts?
    Thanks,
    KSaggin.

    Re: Illustration - Pitching and Choosing A Hammock Tarp

    This is my opinion on the nube... Fair number of people buying based on the product marketing and creative design.. Me personally I would wait until some reviews come in. If you want to be one of the first then go for it.

    Derek,
    Do you have any suggestions about using snakeskins with a full length ridgeline in the v configuration? I try to slide my snakeskins back but they get hung up on the V?

    Snake skins are a bit tricker, but you can use them. When I use a double-sided stuff sack with my tarp, it just gathers up at the end of the tarp, scrunched up between the end of the tarp and where the ridge line comes out to form the "V".

    Snake skins would be no different, only you would have two double-sided stuff sacks snugged up at each end of the tarp.

    With Skins, the trick is to have them pulled over the tarp far enough that you can access the end of the tarp guy points easily, this way you can clip on your ridge line and not have to dig through the Skins.

    Alternatively, you can leave the ridge line attached to the tarp and fed through the Skins.

    I hope this makes sense. Yes, you can use Snake Skins but they will end up scrunched up at the ends of the tarp where the "V" begins.
