    Redoleary, I have also noticed the "gear hammock" possibilities! I have put a few odds and ends down there from time to time.

    If you or some one else here has the time, I would appreciate it if you could measure the length of the net on the top when pulled "tight", IOW when in actual use. Mine maxs out at 9 feet. With some of my no net hammocks I wish it was about a foot longer, and I guess I thought it would be as it is designed for 10 foot hammocks.

    P.S. mine is the original version.

For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Sparrow - thanks for the link to the review. It sounds good, but I am curious as to how the new version of the net zipper impacts getting in and out of the netting.

    Also, I may be reading this incorrectly, but it appears that in order for the net to be working properly you need to have whoppies or a the line/strap suspension in order to raise the ridgline.


    Totoro - I am not necessarily claustrophobic, but I do appreciate openness in a shelter.

    Does anyone have any photos of the new traveler netting with the curved zipper?

    It doesn't really affect it at all. Except the 'opening' created by the zipper is larger. It is just as easy, if not easier.

    That is a misunderstanding. You can use the net with any suspension. And you don't need a separate ridge at all if you use the ridgeline that comes with the Traveler.
    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    Here's one of the newer ones. It's not completely set up but it does meet the requirement that it be an image of these two things:

    Sherpa/Bowlhaircut - thanks for sharing. That was exactly what I was looking for. It seems that with the new zipper you can sit in the traveler with the zipper open.

    Sparrow - Thanks for clearing that up. I read the review again and it looks like the net comes with its own ridgeline which is what I got tripped up on. Does the netting affect the asym lay in any way?

    BillyBob, my net is the original version as well and it has a 9' ridgeline too. My hammock LOA is 10' but only about 8' 4" with the sag.
    Good luck,

    the new travel net is designed to be used with my traveler hammock, which is basically a 10' hammock with a 100" rl. if used with the traveler its basically a perfect fit, with the seam of the net resting on the RL of the traveler hammock.

    the net does have a pull tab at each end in case you want to use it with a shorter hammock or find the need to "tension" then net lengthwise, but i found it much simpler when the net just fits the hammock perfectly and then this tensioning isn't necessary, which is why i shortened the net slightly to fit the length of the traveler.
