    That worked. Not bad, especially for the $$s.

    I suggest swapping out the rigging on the Trek Light with a couple of 12" climbing loops (rated at 22kn), with either rings or cc buckles. I swapped mine to the loops and rings in about 10 minutes, and had it hung in about 10 more. I was taking my time since I was at the hang-out and was talking to folks while I was doing it.

    Get a Speer Snugfit to go with it, and you will have a top of the line setup.

    I think the suspension is part of what they want me to try, but otherwise...oh yeah, it would be switched. At least for camping mode. The way I understand their suspension is the same I have set-up at home. It makes swapping out hammocks an absolute breeze. Great for semi-permanent placements.

    The Snugfit is soooooo on my list after the thru!

    It has been done. I believe there are some pics at the HH site.

    I even tried sewing 10" panels on each side of my homemade hammock to give it more width. Did'nt work well. The sides did not lay down enough to get comfortable. Even after several re-whippings.
    What is the weight of this double hammock, and what kind of weight does it handle? I'm thinking about ordering one, considering the hi comfort rating they seem to be getting here!
