    Question HH Deep Jungle velcro tab

    I'm getting ready to section hike the GA portion of the AT. I've set up and used my hammock over several overnight hikes and came across a velcro tab, but I don't know what it is used for. It's a small (~2") single-sided velcro tab on the non-zippered side about 1/2 of the way from the hammock midpoint to the end. It is located inside the no-see-em, but I can't find a corresponding tab anywhere else. It looks like it might be for keeping the rolled-up no-see-em net stowed at the side of the hammock, but who knows? Any ideas of its purpose?

    Thanks,
    -Cruffler

    ZQ here. I think that tab is used to secure the unzipped netting when placed over the ridgeline. The other side of the velcro tab should be on the netting along the zipper.

    Actually, you would take the netting under then over the ridgeline and secure it with the velcro tabs. I hope this helps. ZQ

    My Scouts with the Hennessy zippers have the same velcro tabs.

    The corresponding tab is alongside the zipper/net it is
    small and hard to see.

    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Thanks, everyone. I guess my problem was that I was rolling up the netting and taking it off the ridgeline when attempting to stow it out of the way. It seems obvious, now... :facepalm:
