    I've now tested Triangle thingies on both Traveler and Blackbird and it works very well on the Blackbird, which has a mosquito net. The mosquito net help the sides of the Triangle from the compressed against each other.

    Sorry no pictures, but I promise it has happened

    Okay, am I being dense in thinking that it would be simpler/lighter to just have a prussik loop a few inches down the ridgeline?

    It's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it.

    Very good question! Kind of like thinking outside the box, in this case, the triangle

    I think we need to look at two cases. The first would be a hammock with a bug net. I'd say the triangles fit that situation perfectly.

    Without a bug net, the prussik has real possibilities! I can't think of any negatives.

    Aahh, the bugnet, I'd forgotten about that detail. Thanks!
