    Stuffing everything into stuff sack ok??

    Just curious if this is ok to do with the hammock (expedition?). I can usually stuff way faster then taking and folding everything nice and neat and then putting it into a stuff sack. I have done it with tents, clothes, etc.. This should not be any different with the hammock since its all made of the same materials as a tent is, right? I know folding will take up less space, but I'd rather just stuff the sucker.

    I think that when the lies are all told and forgot the truth will be there yet. It dont move about from place to place and it dont change from time to time. You cant corrupt it any more than you can salt salt. - Cormac McCarthy

    The difference between snake skins and stuff sack is... imo... only the length.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    I guess I double stuff my Expedition. I stuff it into snake skins, then back into the sack. It's a rare thing when what comes out of the sack it came in actually fits back into the sack it came in.

    I got my HH Safari Deluxe into DIY skins and then back into the original sack. My daughter could not understand why I would do that. To be honest, the biggest reason was just to see if I could. :?)

    The Expedition stuffs very nicely back into the stuff sack, with the straps, and tarps. Took very little time to shove that sucker back in the stuff sack and cinch it closed.

    I'll just shove them in a smaller stuff sack seperately, or just shove it in some outside pockets
