Good video Blaze. Appreciate your input on the number of turns on the prusik loops. When using 4 turns, we've had customers say that they were more difficult to adjust thus the 3 turns as supplied. One can easily add the extra turn as you did if desired. Wish I could compromise with 3 1/2 turns
Editing to add: If there is a consensus that 4 turns should be the norm on the Dutch Edition ridge line, we'll gladly do it.

Thanks Blazeaway, your enhanced take on the slipped buntline hitch might well be used on any number of different hitch type knots to distribute the load ahead of the hitch and keep it from over tightening. I recall from when I worked around small aircraft we used to similarly do an extra pass through the strut loop when we tied down the planes.
great looking kit Blazeaway, knots and all.
thank you for sharing with us.

Thanks Blazeaway, im looking to like on youtube or my facebook to spread the word or spread the love of hammocks but cant find out how to link you.
Another great vid BlazeAway.
You def. have the primo kit.
I'm going to go raul on you and dissagree with the loosed buntline hitch being difficult to undo after hanging weight is applied. This hitch (also is called a slipped buntline) has never been difficult for me to undo after an all nights sleep. So I look on your vid at 02:27 then open the link you provided showing the diagram of this hitch and I have to wonder.....and wonder....
But I don't wonder long because I switched to whoopies long ago
Good deal on the JRB Hood velcroed to the PolarPod---very clever
I'm also wondering how do you get all of that in the ULA Ohm? No food? No stove? Rain kit?

but I can assure you that it is a slipped buntline hitch that I use and that without the extra turns around the metal on the tree straps the knot is harder to untie than if I use extra turns.
Anyway, because of the whoopie sling argument I yield.
And in my next video I will show the packing of the Ohm for deep winter including all the extras, food, water and fuel.
Thanks for watching and commenting.
Yeah I dig your vids---to be a foreigner you seem quite like family! Looking forward to the super stuffed Ohm!
Another great video, BlazeAway. Thanks for letting us enjoy the day with you.
Nice video, thanks for posting.
