    I want to thank Darby and everyone at Tree to Tree for sending the Switchback on tour.
    The weather here has been terrible (windy and wet) since I received the hammock so I didn't get a lot of hang time, but really enjoyed the hammock.

    The double 1.9 feels bombproof compared to the 1.1 I'm accustomed to.
    I don't use a pad but the Velcro closure on the double layer allows this thing to open enough to easily insert any pad you might use. I really like being able to get the bug net up and well out of the way and enter/exit from both sides, which really can't be done in the BB.
    A small thing, but one of my favorites is the D ring in the peak on both ends to clip in a pillow/peak bag/holster or whatever strikes ya.
    I couldn't find anything I didn't like, it is heavier than what I'm used to... But is available in 1.1
    Thanks again Darby! The Switchback should be on it's way to it's next destination tomorrow!

    Do we have an update on the current location of the Switchback?
    Scooter

    In theory, there's no difference between theory and reality.
    In reality, there is.

    I just checked the spreadsheet, and was a little bit confused because the ship date shows it shipped on 10/19, but I'm assuming it meant 11/19.

    I'm out of town for Thanksgiving, but heading home tomorrow. I'm hoping to see a switchback on my doorstep

    If so, I'll get it set up and try to take some pictures for the curious.

    When I got back from Thanksgiving, I had a package in my garage!!!



    When I pulled the hammock out of the box, I noticed a slight tear/cut on the stuff sack, and my heart sank. It looks like it might have been nicked while cutting the box open?? (wasn't me, I learned that lesson the hard way a long time ago). I didn't notice any damage on the hammock underneath the tear, so I pulled the hammock out and went over the bed. I couldn't find any nicks/tears. I applied some tear aid to the stuff sack, and decided to proceed with the test drive.


    Yesterday I had a chance to string up the hammock (work and getting dark at like 4pm have been making it hard to take pics)

    I strung it up and crawled in. I immediately noticed how much more open it felt than my blackbird, and really liked that. I also like the zipper on both sides, and that it will allow me to use my polar pod with it. Overall, it's probably my next hammock purchase.





    I really love the concept of the tour, and appreciate the opportunity to try before I buy.

    Thanks again for the experiment!
