    Smile My SwitchBack is coming!

    These are a quite slow pages compared to Warbonnet section. I do not like these announcements, but in this case I thought it would be nice to have a new post here.

    So, maybe in little over week I will be hanging on my new DL 1.9 SB with strap suspension.

    HURRAY!!!

    switchback

    The switchback is still the best hammock that I own. I have a wbbb, a jrb bridge, light owl and 2 or 3 others. The switchback is still my go to hammock, and the one that I sleep the best in. Enjoy. dave

    Great choice

    Hopefully I'll be enjoying my SB soon--haven't had it out in a while other than out at the park playing with my kids. They are great hammocks. Enjoy!

    Hi praise indeed for these hammocks which I have not been fortunate enough to try out yet. I can not find what the dimensions of these hammocks are. Any one know? I'm thinking of how well they might work with Pea and PolarPods.
    For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that is to be revealed to us....that the creation itself also will be set free from its slavery to corruption into the freedom of the glory of the children of God. For we know that the whole creation groans and suffers the pains of childbirth together until now.

    Bought one of the early ones and it immediately got confiscated by mi esposa. I finally bought #2 and it has the 2QZQ mod. I am liking it a lot. Looks real nice under my Hard Rock tarp by Arrowhead eq.
    We are now ready to start our way down the Great Unknown.We are three quarters of a mile in the depth of the earth.We have an unknown distance yet to run, an unknow river yet to explore.What falls there are, we know not; what rocks beset the channel, we know not; what walls rise over the river, we know not. Ah, well! We may conjecture many things. The men talk as cheerfully as ever; jests are bandied about freely this morning; but to me the cheer is somber and the jests are ghastly. Powell 1869

    I paid customs today

    So it should be here tomorrow or wednesday at least.

    I have been thinking SB should be a perfect companion to my MLD TrailsStar.

    - Suspension can be hanged lower than BB, less interference with tarp and tarp can be hanged lower if in need to get a better wind protection (wind protection is problem with TrailStar in hammock use).

    - Due to it's structure SB can be used as a mosquito netting when sleeping on ground under TrailStar, BB is not good for ground use.

    - Winter and autumn time I can flip it over if the weather is warm and still enough and enjoy open space around me and better views. (Mosquito netting protects from wind and keeps warmth around, not much but it is noticeable at face area in cold season)

    It IS

    MAGICAL!!!

    I do not know how, but it feels just like I have always imagined hammock should.

    Even when loaded with Exped SynMat DLX 9 and 14 mm full sized CCF pad and Wiggy's Antarctic with over bag everything just fits in and settles automagically right in the best spot. With BB there was always something to adjust to get everything in the right position for sleeping.

    Comfort and simplicity! That is what I was looking for.

    I noticed the website says suspension sold separately. I think they started with Whoopie then went to strap/buckles. Did yours come with straps or were they extra?
