    Overall a nice video. I mean the following as positive critique, I'm not slamming it.

    1.) Might be worth noting that it is a double layer 1.7 (since the others can be significantly lighter).

    2.) Might want to retake some of the photos with a tripod &/or flash to unblur them. (Really only talking about the pic of the triangle buckles).

    3.) It would be nice to have some of your personal opinions of the comfort, materials, construction, etc in the video. Right now the video almost requires the write-up along with it.

    Anyhoo, glad to have another WB dude

    Also, by snake skin are you referring to the double ended stuff sack? I'm use to the term 'Snake Skin' to mean a sleeve that slides over the hanging hammock to bunch it all up in a protective layer, then that gets shoved into a sack. See Shug's Tarp video where he is storing the tarp in a snake skin.

    But it's a good write up and does cover what I think of the hammock as well. A very well thought out hammock that shows the developments over the basic gathered end. Though I sleep in one of those every night.

    I also like, although I don't think I've seen it mentioned, that there is a little strap on the inside of the hammock and again on the outside that you can flip the bugnet over the ridgeline, roll it up and tie it off with. Leaves the shelf functional and lets you have an open hammock.
