    OK got the "bolt" inside the tent webbing(already was by accident on one end) and got it packed up in the original sack. That worked lot's better than what I was doing, but still seems a bit arduous compared to just strapping my JRB bars to the pack and having my hammock very quickly stuffed into a sil-nyl sack. But at least you can't leave them behind, I guess that is the big advantage. I think I would like to mod it so there is a "nipple" that fits through the webbing bar holes, and just very quickly pop them loose or back on, like with the JRB or GrizzBridge.
    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.

    Sounds like a good idea to me.

    So many trees, so little time...
    We follow where the Swamp Fox guides,
    His friends and merry men are we;
    And when the troop of Tarleton rides,
    We burrow in the cypress tree.
    The turfy hammock is our bed,
    Our home is in the red deer's den,
    Our roof, the tree-top overhead,
    For we are wild and hunted men.

    Thanks, that helps. I had only been able to find the directions for the newest model.

    A-ha! When I replaced my original buckle suspension it meant I also removed the bolt or pin that went into the webbing loop and kept the cover from riding up. I knew that I always had to pull it down when I first set up, I just never realized why. I forgot to do it this time and that's why I tore it!

    Now I know that I need to rig up a short loop of amsteel or shock cord to keep it taut so that this doesn't happen with the new cover I'm getting from a member here. Love this forum!

    Gumbo and I are very happy with the results. Like you we lve the Chrylsalis! Most comfortable hammock EVAH!!
    I don't know how I missed that thread, but you and Gumbo did a great job making those!!! What a great idea and your able to change your bottom insulation to what ever the weather is calling for at any given time.

    I vote for this as it will open your options up.

    Has anyone tried to sew a pad pocket inside the Chrysalis? I thought I may try to sew a pocket on the inside of the hammock to the webbing along the side. You would be able to slide the pad in from the end. Easy to slide in without the cover, but may be a PITA with the cover on.
    Happy Hangin!!!
