    Doesn't the WBBB have a built-in ridge line that keeps the bug net off your face?

    Thanks!
    Three reasons (mainly):
    1. It helps with consistent pitching to get the amount of sag I want without having to think too hard about it.
    2. It keeps the mosquito netting up and off my face.
    3. It's a good place to hang my spectacles, a pouch for holding headlamp and other bits that I want to keep handy.

    Yes...and it also sets a consistent sag for the hammock and gives me a place to hang my headlamp from. When I set up camp, my headlamp is ALWAYS either around my neck/head or on my hammock.

    +1. That's what I do, too!
