    Switchback Mod at 2QZQ!

    As a result of a fellow HF member, namely Rip Waverly, we have designed a Zipper Mod for the Switchback. We will call it the Switchback RW Convertible in his honor.

    The netting unzips down to the toe end of the hammock and is stored in a small peak bag.......similar to our Hennessy Zipper Mod 4. The Switchback, without a structural ridgeline, becomes wide open when the netting is unzipped. Very cool.

    The Switchback RW Convertible can now be found on our website.

    See Rip Waverly's teaser thread about it here.

    What a great mod to one of the finest hammocks out there.
    Thanks 2QZQ for offering this feature to the SB line.
    I'll be sending my hammock in the next day or so.

    2Q & ZQ, That looks awesome ! When RW contacted me about the mod & said he was sending it to you, I knew it would look good, but I am really impressed. Great job !

    Cheers, Dale

    Thanks Darby. Your blessing on the project soothed ZQ's conscious. She felt cutting up somebody's hammock design without talking to them first was improper "hammock-ettiquette".

    Congrats Rip! You're famous now in the hammock world. Kinda like axle rose in the 1992 rock n roll world.

    And why are you such a bad influence. Everytime you try a new hammock I feel like I have to, haha.

    2q and zq, great job! Nothing but quality.

    Full net removal?

    Is there a way to fully remove the netting so it can left at home when not needed? I would order that in a heartbeat.
