    I have a BB and had a Traveler. I now have a Wilderness Logics Lite Owl as my netless hammock. Like Grizz I didn't like my feet falling out of the Traveler nor my top quilt falling out every time I got out of the hammock. The WL hammock solves these issues with shock cord drawstrings allowing me to create a semi-foot box or vertical sidewall keeping my feet and quilt in the hammock.

    I don't like my feet leaving the hammock and so I lay in the hammock a bit differently than I do in the BB.
    This is certainly a point.

    Thanks for all the feedback.

    Good points about not wanting the feet to go over the edge. That's what drove me to develop the stretch-side mod. I believe some have applied it to a Traveler.

    I have been using a BB since 2009 and had recently picked up the Traveller. BB is noticeably more comfortable and less finicky, so far. I like the traveller concept but again found my feet falling out to the right. Could it be a tension/sag issue? or is the side tensioners the way to go? I notice that some other netless hammocks like the Speer appear to have the sides envelope around the user. I don't own a speer, any ideas?
