    ENO Ember diagonal lay

    I've seen video of the ENO Ember and it looks like if you use the hooks to go over the hammock it is going to be very difficult to get a diagonal lay. How about if you leave it unhooked and rely more on a top quilt? Anybody try that? I have a WB Traveler DL if anybody happens to have specific experience with the two combined.

    Additionally I am probably going to pick one up and give it a try. If I can leave it way open and get a diagonal lay it will at least be worth it to use for the fall. But I'm going to wait a few days to see if anybody has any responses concerning this.

    I have a friend back home who uses an Ember with his ENO. I'll see if he has any word on whether he can get a good diagonal lay in it or not.

    I have the ember and use a topquilt in conjunction with it. I can lay diagonal while using the elastic hooks, but only if I use only a couple of hooks in the center. I use more hooks when I'm just laying centered while lounging, reading, watching the iphone, etc...
    If I cut out the elastic and hooks I probably wouldn't miss them. I also haven't had it out in winter conditions either though. I may change my mind later this winter. Time will tell.
    Slow is smooth, and smooth is fast.

    That's what I was thinking as well.... to limit the number of hooks or at least to add some length to them if I need to keep the sides up.
