    Snakeskin question

    Think this has been asked in other threads but I can't find a definite answer.

    Can the backpacker ultralite, undercover (without under pad) and the HEX fly be fitted into the snakeskin?

    well I know my exped asym and undercover without pad plus stock tarp can fit. but I dont have the hex. so I guess this is a free bump

    I have an explorer and the hex tarp and could get them in the snake skins. I don't have the undercover, but don't think there would be room. I think the skins would fit either the tarp or the undercover, but not both....

    Custom Skins??

    There are lots of threads on here for making your own from Silnylon or even mesh. If you ask nicely some enterprising DIY person might make you a custom pair for a nominal fee. (not me, I can barely sew a straight line).

    I would say that it would not fit well. I find just the hex tarp upgrade makes it impossible to fit the hammock and tarp in there, it can be done -- but with quite the struggle.

    I was able to fit my Explorer Delux and SS with the pad in the snakeskins that came with my hammock. It was very tight, and took some effort, but it fit. I didn't like it though and moved to using the snakeskins for my Chinook tarp only and use a bishop bag for the hammock and SS.
