    I find the design works well for me. As Brandon mentions I just sit in hammock, lift netting over me and lay in. The attachment point on the netting works great for me, as I can unzip a partial distance while laying in hammock and still have the netting tight and away from my head. Personally I would not like the attachment points onto the hammock.

    there should be 2 strands of shockcord going through the cordlock. to configure this way:

    remove cordlock, remove shockcord from ring.
    put cordlock on shockcord (about 12" from un-knotted end)
    put un-knotted end through metal ring and back through cordlock a second time

    this method is much less tangle-prone. i still store one zipped inside the hammock though but that may not even be necessary.
    Gave that a try, keeps the shock cord from slipping back thru the ring...works good! Thanks for the tip Brandon.

    Cheers

    I want the tie outs. They keep the net up off my face.
    I have no probs with the attachment at the net.
    It's just that I would like to be able to clip and unclip the zip side tie out for convenience.

    Not necessarily. At least on my HH UL Explorer, one of my constant complaints was the bug netting wanting to sag down enough to touch my face. I really had to have the side pull outs perfect to avoid this. The main thing is to try hard to make sure the pull outs are attached to something higher than a stake in the ground. When attached to the ground, after hammock sag, the pull outs would always loosen up a lot and allow the net sag.PITA. But attaching to something higher is not always easy due to the tarp. Not for sure I had this problem as much with other HHs, but sure did with that Explorer, which is in fact now a no net hammock!

    But about the first thing I noticed about the WBBB was a much appreciated distance between my head and any netting, due to the actual net area being pulled away by the tie outs. The net has never given me any grief once inside.

    Yes, I agree it is a bit of a PITA when getting in. But like so many things I have considered to be (technically) a PITA, it really does not seem like that big of a deal for me overall. And if I want pull outs with the net flipped out of the way, it will be a simple mod to add some Grossgrain (sp?) to that area but on the bottom. Actually, good idea now that I think about it.
    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.

    Ditto with an HHSS. Also on my MMP IX UQ which is the same size/shape as The HHSS pad. Tie outs line up.

    I have had an urge to try my HHSS on my WBBB lately, but I think I might need to sew on some lower level hammock tie outs to match up with the SS.

    if the tieouts were on the hammock body and you unziped, the netting would fall into the hammock and you have to pick it up so you could sit down without sitting on it, and also if you were inside the hammock and unzip it would fall in on you. it's nice to be able to lay in the hammock with it un-zipped and not have to deal with putting the net somewhere just to keep it off you (you can still flip it completely over the edge if you want)
    Ok, This makes some sense to me. I'm not used to a side entry hammock that has tie outs on the side. I own one of the original non-asym Hennessy hammocks that has bottom entry, and a Clark NX-250 with no side tie outs. It will just take some getting used to. Thanks for the replies!

    So here is a cheap and easy solution to the tie out issue. Just take a picture hanger hook and slip the shock cord through the top and then back through the cordlock. Then use the hook to connect to the sliding ring on the cord fixed to the hammock. When you need to move the tie out out of your way just unhook it and you have have a clear path end to end on the entry side of the hammock. I tried this last night and it worked great.
    I saw this on the forum somewhere with a Dutch hook. I think I will go ahead and put a little piece of 3M reflective tape on the hook and the cordlock to make it easier to find at night.

    And just because I had such an excellent night last night I am posting the pics of the WBBB 1.1 dbl, KAQ Potomac, and HH hex tarp in full porch mode.
    We had a glorious clear night with temps into the low 40's and just a hint of a breeze. Perfect sleeping weather!
    I wouldn't have bothered with the tarp, but the weather bunny said we might get a few sprinkles during the ealry morning.
