    The gf is wanting to try one out so I ordered one Friday for her. She can't wait to try it out plus I got a few brownie points

    Gotcha. So if i start out inside hammock with netting fully pulled back, I should get out of hammock to zip past the corners if i chose to close the netting then get in and close the rest of the way.

    Sure, if you are already in it...But it seems 99% of the time one would know if they expect to use the bug net before the get in the hammock and set it up accordingly to save time and effort.

    Not if your kicked back looking at the stars and moon, then zip up netting to go to sleep. No biggie. My definite favorite hammock by far!

    I used a large neo air for pad. It felt wonderful.
    Hey Gadgeteer, thanks for the pics.. Is that 25" wide neo air or a 20" wide.

    Thanks

    25" IT'S AWESOME
    On take down I just leave the pad in. Take one side down and take bar out,fold in half and deflate and roll until I get to other side. Works great.
    I've had Hennessy, Warbonnet, and now the BMBH. The BMBH is without a doubt the most comfortable. Also I was able to sleep on my side thanks to neoair.

    Just to give you an idea of my body size - 6'1" 230lbs and wide shoulders. I had no squeeze at all.
