    Switchback = 2 for the price of 1

    Okay...don't tell the guys at TTTG...but having a Switchback is like getting 2 hammocks for the price of 1.
    If John or Dale find out then they're going to start charging double! Glad I got mine before the price increase!

    What in the world am I talking about???

    Well, it's not rocket science, but if you want to go without a net and just have an open hammock...then just flip the whole darn thing over! Works like a champ.

    Unhook your tie-outs to the ground, unhook your bug net from whatever you've got it attached to, flip your Switchback over, and lie back down. Now you've got an open entry hammock, no net, and a clear view of the sky. Enjoy!

    I was wondering about that since you can do the same with the HammockBliss no-see-um-no-more.

    Killer feature

    This would be the killer feature in Switchback. I'm considering WB Traveller to company my two BB hammocks. I like the idea to get out from any side I want, but that is not possible with Traveller's net. On the other hand Switchback with netting over hammock is not as open as Traveller, even when net folded.

    But if this is kosher, then Switchback is the winner!
