    I have the HH expedition Asym Zip. I used it once...then added whoppies...then after a couple more nights added the separate ridgeline for the tarp and Blackbishop bag. Then I upgraded my tarp to MEC's Silnylon Guide tarp (much better in bad or winter weather). I finally got a set of snakeskins for the tarp but havent had a chance to try them out yet....maybe this weekend

    Awsome Hamock as is! Woopies are neet, as is a big cat tarp. Snakeskins. But most important! Get out in the woods and use it!

    The zipper pulls are the size of snowboards. Mine would "jingle" when I moved around in the night. Irritating. I carefully cut the inside pulls off and replaced them with a loop of thin bungee cord. The loops are large enough for me to pull the zipper with my toe, so I no longer have to perform an "ab crunch" to unzip all the way!

    I stitched a small white "flag" (about 1cm square) to the foot end of the snake skins to know where the foot end is (I want that end higher). Also got carabiners, as the Hennessy lashing method is great but wears away at the tree huggers. I also got extra long tree hugger straps. No other changes here, as the hammock itself is a pretty solid product.
