    Just bought my first DoubleNest

    ...Any tips or tricks from you crafty vets for a new hanger with a brand new toy?

    Replace the suspension.

    Then get a ridgeline and spend the time it takes to find your perfect lay. There isn't another hammock out there with fabric as comfortable as an ENO.

    +1 on this. Suspension replacement tends to lead to a much better relationship with your new toy!

    I (a friend) cut off the stock suspension and put on whoopie slings, also took the compressor strap off with a thread cutter.. just a piece of fabric w/ end channels and whoopies.. weights CONSIDERABLY less now..

    Forgot something. I also took off the compression strap, however I did it very carefully with a set of scissors.

    well feel free to cut off the rope int he channels and wrap your whoopies on the ends and you'll be rocking and rolling. I absolutely love this hammock and now the weight is reasonable.

    I'm looking to replace my suspension but its not that bad. Unless I was going on a long backpacking trip the weight isn't that bad

    its not just about the weight... its simplicitly... The abitly to raise your head, or foot end in about a second, with out undoing, or hooking, or dealing with knots is worth is worth its weight in gold... I would trade out the stock suspension for something like a whoopie sling even it wieghed more..
