    2QZQ zipper mod

    I'm thinkin about havin zipper mod 3 done to my Hennessy. Looks like for me, the left side would be best to zip since I'm a righty. That would allow me to lean up on my left elbow/arm and use my right hand to get out or reach for something. Does this make sense? Any feedback on this mod?

    The mod 3 is what I have. It works just like you are thinking. You just reach over with the right hand and unzip to reach out. It has been a good addition to tend to my dog who sleeps on his mat right where my feet go when I enter/exit the hammock. The work that ZQ does is very well done. You will not be sorry!
    I like refried beans. That's why I wanna try fried beans, because maybe they're just as good and we're just wasting time. You don't have to fry them again after all.

    ZQ Does outstanding work.

    My HHExplUL went from "the one I was going to unload and replace with something new and shiny" to my "go to" hammock since the mod.

    I have two words for you... Do It.

    Good sound logic for a right hander ... but might I suggest the MOD 4? Have it on my HH Exped and it makes it complete in my opinion... take that net completely down and out of the way ... gives you the best of both worlds IMHO. You'll be impressed how good a job they do.

    I have mod4 on my HHXped with the 3way zipper on my left.

    The only thing I would change is I would put 3 ways on both sides. This would make adjusting your UQ a bit easier when using the bug net.

    Either way, I would go with mod4.
