    I looked at the net picts on your website but could not tell how they adjust.
    you might get by with the ends of your hammock sticking ou the end openings, there would be a limit to how much could stick out before it started stressing the opening, i couldn't say what the limit is, 110 might be doable, you'd almost have to try it to find out. (you can always return it if it didn't fit)

    there is a ring at each end if you need to use it. if your rl is similar to the length of the sock/net, then you don't need to use those rings...the sock/net would just be supported by your hammock's rl, if you'r hammock's rl is signifigantly shorter than the sock/net, then you could attach a small bit of shockcord to one or both of the rings to apply tension to the ridge seam of the sock

    Hi Brandon,
    Based on your info. I'm willing to give one a try.
    With the wind we've been getting lately It could be a life saver.
    I'll be watching the site for when they go up for sale.

    thank you

    That's what had my interest also was extra protection from the wind. I also like the idea of a loose fit. It would give me a little room to customize.

    yes, the sock is a great concept (justjeff's invention i think?). unlike a topcover, the micro-climate that it creates includes your underquilt, protecting it from wind and giving both your top and bottom insulation a temp. boost.

    I have a 110 ridge line and I kinda do what Brandon has suggested. On my bug net I only have to tie one end to my suspension and let the other end dangle. When I've tied both ends it compressed my down but I wasn't using shock cord, I was just using line. I should try the shock cord.
    The ends of my hammock are slightly through the Velcro on each end of the the hammock. I've thought about making mesh extensions but it works fine this way and I don't want to add unnecessary weight.

    A note on sticking hammock ends through the bugnet/sock ends:
    The velcro of the bugnet/sock will grab your hammock material and pull it.
    My liteowl hammock which is 1.1 looks like a cat got ahold to the ends because of the stiffer side of the velcro grabbing and pulling it. Not a good thing really.

    It probably depends on the material, but 1.1 nylon is very prone to it.
