    Im not sure why the SB wasnt comfortable for me, or if the others were just more comfortable. I did not feel that the fabric in the SB I had stretched enough to get to a sweet spot. I think I need the length to get to my comfortable spot.
    I am not a gram weenie. , But Im starting to see the merits!!!

    I have to be faithful to my new girl, the Night Owl. No cheating with a SB. Can't do it! I took my commitment seriously. I am however considerin an affair with her sister, the Lite Owl. Sister wives, ohhhh!
    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.

    I went to their site and dont see the single layer Lite Owl only the double layer. Am I missing it? I will contact the maker and ask about a SL.

    Does anyone know what an unrigged Lite Owl weighs?

    It can be found here.

    I wonder if I could rig something like this up for my next DIY hammock. I had not considered adding shockcord in the seam for a quasi-footbox. Hmmm....
    Anyone have the dimensions of the shockcord and its exact location?
